To be in love with living

Many people get caught up with small inconveniences, with life happening to them. They forget about the life that can happen for them, if only they can gain better perspective. If only they come from a place of gratitude and wonder.

To feel light, happy, and carefree, thankful for every day we've been given. To see the beauty in the world, despite the brokenness all around us. To find hope, even if it's the tiniest glimmer. To find fulfillment in learning, growing and helping others. To appreciate life—of being able to think and feel, read and write and paint. To love and be loved. To be in love with living.

When burdened with problems, think: you are alive. You've been given gifts—capability and agency. Use them, and choose the path of possibility.
