Appreciate everything.

Jamieson Van Loan

I was listening to a podcast this week and someone said, "If the stars only came out every thousand years, what would you do?"

You would treat that one day in a thousand with such awe, excitement and appreciation. And yet, the stars come out every night for us to admire and appreciate and we stay inside watching Netflix and checking social media on our phones. 

There are a million cliches out there to hit home gratitude and appreciation, (stop and smell the roses, appreciate the small things in life, etc)  but this one really struck a chord. It might be that I grew up without TV in my life (Fiji didn't have a television channel until I was 12) and I spent most of my time in nature, but this appreciation has shifted for me. It exists in the pocket of "when I have time".  New goal: appreciate the beauty of this world. Right now. 

And equally as important - the beauty inside me. We are blessed (ugh, social media has ruined this word) to be given healthy bodies and we need to do our utmost to keep them that way. What are you doing to keep your body healthily fueled and happy? What are you doing to truly appreciate your health?
