Every day is a gift – relish that knowledge.

“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.”

-Marcus Aurelius

You’re facing some pretty huge problems. We all are. A few of them probably seem pretty insurmountable right now. It’s easy to play the victim and moan. But realise this – you are lucky to have these problems. Every breath you take is a gift.

The chances of you just existing as a human being on this planet are infinitesimally tiny. On top of that, we’ve got the ridiculous good fortune of being born into an incredible period in human history: inter-connectedness, unparalleled comfort and instant, almost barrier free access to the whole sum of human knowledge via the internet…

We’re so lucky. Let’s act like we’re aware of that, every single day.

Shoulder your burden, and take joy in the strain.
