Give Yourself a Present — Be Present.

Take a moment today to be present …and appreciate what you have:)

“Most people aren’t dealing with catastrophic events in their 20s. But catastrophe just chooses you …you don’t choose it.  If you knew that, you would appreciate every moment you have. Just appreciate. Walking, talking, driving. Anything.  As you get older you learn to appreciate good times because you know they come in cycles.  You go on a good ride and then  crap happens…and then you go on a good ride again. In the end you get stronger and develop more compassion.” — 40-something, Connecticut

“Despite the horrible things that life doles out to you…losing your job, deaths in your family– terrible things can happen  — but you can still be a happy person.” – 40-something, Brooklyn, NY
