SEE, UNDERSTAND, LOVE & SHARE THE GIFT.
“See, understand, love. Life is a present which I unwrap every morning at waking.” I love everything about what French author Christian Bobin says here, for he understands that life’s great secret is found in the simple way that one views the gift of a morning.
This morning, wake up to your own gift of life. Whether you are at work, on your way to tailgate a NFL game, or at a post-church brunch with friends and family, unwrap the beautifully tied ribbons of your day today. Spend five extra minutes with your cup of coffee and look around you. See and understand the intricacies of your daily relationships and interactions, for the more you appreciate them for the gift that they are in your life – whether it be with stranger, co-worker or lover – the more you will be filled with love.
Enjoy your Sunday today and make it about sharing a moment with friend, family or stranger. Give a hug, split a bottle of wine, take a family walk and be kinder than normal, for all these things ultimately make your life gift today even greater than it already is.
