Sometimes we go through life without really tuning into the beautiful things in the world that surround us, and the things that really matter. We may see without really taking the time to notice. Nature lifts our spirits. When we are tired, it rejuvenates us; if we pause long enough to drink from its beauty.
“Live with gusto.” Take the time to enjoy the simple things in life. Do not take things for granted, because they may not always be there. Rise early to see the sunrise. Watching the sky change colors and the world emerging from darkness is an experience that will influence the whole rest of your day in ways that words cannot describe. Allow each day to rejuvenate your entire being. All you have to do is pause to appreciate the gifts of nature for just one minute.
Deep in the hearts of every human being there is mercy, love, and generosity. No one is born hating others because of the color of their skin, religious preference or background. Hating
others is a learned behavior and if people can learn to hate, they can be taught to love; for it comes more naturally to a human heart. People make mistakes, be slow to judge and quick to forgive. Be grateful to those around you. Appreciate and value their kind gestures, efforts and contributions.
