Today's holiday, All is Ours Day

Monday, April 08, 2013

Today is a day of appreciation of the world around us. It is also a reminder that we are all sharing the world with everyone else.

Let's be aware of all the wonderful things that surround us, from the fragrance the flowers give off, to the buildings that keep us dry from the rain, to the rain that refreshes the world.

Sharing is the main part of today, so be sure to share something wonderful with someone you love or someone you think may need it today. Perhaps you could even take the time to be grateful for the friendship you have with someone. Take a walk or spend some time with someone and perhaps even share a great lunch or walk with that person. Time is the greatest thing we can give to ourselves and others.

This is a day of introspection. Take the time to realize what you have to be grateful for and enjoy the things you have instead of yearning for those things you don't have. So many are always looking for the best next thing without reminding themselves of the things they already have. When you're happy with the things you have, you're more likely to enjoy life, passing that happiness along to others.

Share the world with the people who live in it and be kind in your world and it will be a happier place to live, one person at a time.

    How great it would be if everyone, and all continents would abide by this---what a wonderful world it would be---so much for dreaming. I will continue feeling blessed with what I have, and what I can do.
