Appreciate What You Have

I came upon an interesting quote today:

“Look around you. Appreciate what you have. Nothing will be the same in a year.” – Unknown

So true, isn’t it? I’d even add, “appreciate WHO you have.” And, there’s always a chance that nothing will be the same tomorrow.

In My Head

I run, most days. I appreciate my legs, my lungs, my heart. My senses. My “cruise control.” I consider myself fortunate to get out of bed everyday; to walk and run. Yet I still respect and keep in the forefront of my mind that there may come a time that I realize my previous run would be my last.

We can’t control the world around us, but we can control our perspective. Keep looking out, keep looking up. Appreciate what you have and what you’re able to do.
