Often times we fail to see the beauty of life and appreciate what we have. Our focus is on the gold and the diamonds that make the world go round while forgetting that sleeping is natural but waking up is grace.

Most of us misunderstand the word gift. We believe that gifts are only material things that make one’s life easier. The truth is life itself is a gift, yes every day is a gift because not everyone wakes up daily as you do. Behind the walls are tears of the souls whom their mothers denied life to, graveyards are occupied by corpses, but you are still here healthy and alive. Embrace every moment of it.

It is up to you whether you make this gift valuable or worthless. We need to understand that every given destiny has its own trial and path to follow. Unique as we are, we have different destinies. Never compare who you are or what you have with others as a comparison is said to be the greatest thieve of joy. You are greater than you presume. Good things come to those who believe and better things to the patient.

What’s the use of having all the earth’s wealth while swimming in depression? What’s the use of risking your life/ somebody’s life for billions that you will leave behind when he who gave it to you decides to take his gift back? We need to bear in mind that no luggage is allowed in the ‘after life’ – naked we were born and ‘naked’ we shall return.

Prevention is better than cure my dearests, let’s appreciate the gift of life and live it to the fullest. Every day is a gift, so why can’t we embrace it? Let’s do! Time wasted is never regained!
