Don’t ever save anything for a special occasion. Every day you’re alive is a special occasion.
~Ann Wells, American writer of “A Story to Live By” (Los Angeles Times)
Today is a beautiful day to be alive. To celebrate this special occasion, treat today as if it were the most important day of your life. Take the time to dress up in your personal best. Arrange your hair just so as you get ready to go. Make plans to meet with your good friends as you choose to make every hour today a happy one. As long as you are able, go outside for a walk, and take in the beautiful sights. Call your loved ones to reconnect on a very deep level. Send an e-mail to convey how much the people you love mean to you. And when you return home, light the candles and serve up your dinner on your special china. You do not have to wait for a special event because every day is a special occasion as long as you are alive. No regrets. Treat today as if it were the most important day of your life because there are no guarantees for tomorrow. If you are moving too quickly through your days, never stopping to appreciate your blessings, then now is the time; today is the day. Make this one change, and no matter where you are on the journey, it will be a beautiful day to be alive.
Magical Key to Bliss: Be grateful; if you are alive, today is a special day!
