You have heard that life is precious and we need to appreciate it.
But why, if most of the time we feel less than great about our lives.
It is because we have taken many things for granted.
Have you thought about odds of you being born? Your parents, grandparents and great grandparents and ancestors had to exist on a suitable planet like Earth to start their lives. They stayed alive despite all the wars, famines and diseases. They met the right person at the right place and time, they liked each other enough and conceived a child who survived childhood. Isn’t your existence unique and worthy of appreciation?
How about a butterfly that you see and take a picture of? Out of 100 butterfly eggs only 1 or 2 become butterfly. A butterfly needs to be at the right place and time for you to see and take a picture. Isn’t this unique and worthy of appreciation?
How about your pet that you love dearly? How many things had to go right before that unique animal to be alive and stay in your life? Isn’t this unique and worthy of appreciation?
No matter how you are feeling at this moment, many things had to happen to make this feeling possible and so many things had to go right or not so right. How many dangers and disease did you bypass since childhood in order to be here today? What you are feeling by itself is a miracle and is very precious.
Look at your body and how many things working automatically which you really have no control over them. How many things needed to go right so you can wake up this morning and be able to read this article?
That is why your life and your experience are very unique.
You are very unique and the life you are living is very precious.
