Don't take life for granted!
Friday, May 06, 2011
I just read the Slowest Loser Blog, and I feel so much the same! Here's an excerpt:
"Go outside at night. Look into space. See the vast void of blackness and the inconceivably distant stars, the closest of which is more than four light years away. And ponder the fact that the most powerful telescopes haven't confirmed any other kind of intelligent life in the universe.
Do you know how lucky that makes you, especially considering that you're the highest life form on a planet with billions of them? Have you pondered how miraculous it is that all of nature has somehow manifested, either by divine origin or freak accident of the cosmos, to give rise to and support your life? Have you ever stopped to try to enumerate or appreciate all the actions taken by countless other humans to put food on your table, a roof over your heads, sneakers on your feet, dumbbells in your hands, the Internet connection that's allowing you to read this post, etc.?
The problem with us humans is that we're spoiled brats who take all of this for granted and tend to focus on negative events and situations. "
