I woke up at roughly 5:40 A.M. this morning and realized something marvelous.  I was still breathing! 

I know that may not seem like great news to you, but it was miraculous news to me. 

Now I'm sure you are asking yourself exactly what I'm talking about.  What sorted affair or circumstance leads me to this unusual conclusion.  Was he in an accident?  Was he hurt?  Does he have some sort of disease or dysfunction.  The answer is no.  There is no looming death sentence, or even a close call.  I'm still enthralled to see that I woke up yet another day, a new day to live and express myself.

How often do we look at the potential before us?  How many of us actually take stock and see how glorious it is just to be alive?  The sheer opportunity that arises each time we wake to another breath.  I never used to.  Living was simply the state of being I was in, floating along with the rest of the population and looking pessimistically (what I had considered realistically) at each circumstance.

One day I just decided enough was enough.  I wanted to be happy.  I wanted greater things for myself, and I didn't care how, but I knew I would achieve them.  I decided to make an effort to push myself into an abundant state of living.  To be grateful for each breath I had and live each life to the fullest, before it passed me by completely. 

Here's the even better news.  You can TOO!  It is so incredibly easy to shift your current state of expression from a negative, unmotivated, uninspired, dull life, to an incredibly satisfying plethora of experience every single day.  Embrace each breath as though it were your last.  Live to love, learn, grow and expand in every way possible.

Pursue your dreams, don't just fantasize, start planning them.  Visualize your success and achievement of greatness and watch as your emotional meter rises to overflowing.  Embrace family, friends, and loved ones alike with a smile and give all of yourself to them.  Envelope yourself in warmness and feel the ecstatic vibrations pulsing through you.
