My days don't always follow this exact pattern but the theme is consistent; to take care of myself. To develop myself and my skill sets. To grow through challenges and make the time to do the things that remind me of how precious life is.
Today was an ordinary day, nothing special or unexpected occurred. I awoke, moved my body, ate and shared moments with others. Most of us have very similar experiences day after day and if we can be present throughout them, we just might find how wonderful the simple things in life really are.
