Each day of my life, no matter what happens, is a gift. I know it may not always seem like it when you’re going through any type of suffering, but this is what I have learned through being alive on earth for over half a century. My journey has included trauma, depression, alcoholism, divorce, job loss, cancer, and long-term illness, to name only a few of the challenges I have faced.

However, I GET to gain experience and learn lessons and journey alongside other travelers who are learning lessons of their own. I will be writing future posts about the various gifts that life gives us, but today I’m grateful for the gift of life itself. How amazing to be in these exceptionally designed bodies with all of our senses and abilities as well as the consciousness to think, dream, and imagine.

My life is a sacred gift and so is yours. Try to be open to all of the Gifts on the Journey!
