When I say 10,000 days, it's hard for me to wrap my head around it. That sounds like a big number, but it's also really small in the big scheme of life. Weird how that works--it can be big and small at the same time. It's all about perspective, right?! :)
Like other milestones in my life, I make a point to ponder and take stock of where I've been, where I'm at and where I'm going. I can say with sincerity of heart that I look at my past with GRATITUDE; my present with MINDFULNESS; my future with HOPE. I've lived 10,000 days and it's gone by in a blink of an eye (well, some of those days seemed to last forever, I will admit!). I hope I have many more days ahead, but God only knows that number. That's not for me to fret over. My job is to LIVE each day.
But when we realize that God entrusts to us the gift of LIFE each day that we wake up breathing, that fact right there has weight to it. That can empower us to walk a little taller--God trusts me with LIFE today! He gave me breath to live, move and have my being. Wow! I don't want to waste TODAY cause it is a gift (as cliche as it might sound, it's true)!
I must say, I have a good sense of pride and accomplishment today. I'm resonating with Alicia Keys' song, Girl On Fire. I've accomplished a lot in my first 10,000 days, yet I have so much more I want to do! I'm not done living that's for sure cause this girl is on fire!
