Chapter 8, Page 26, Book 16

Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator, another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday. Be a self starter. Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again. Don't waste it with a false start or no start at all. You were not born to fail.

August 26th - celebrate life

Don't ever save anything for a special occasion.
Being alive is the special occasion.

We shouldn't need an excuse to celebrate our lives.  Life is a gift, and you are a gift. We should learn how to celebrate every day like it’s special!  

We often think of celebrations as centering around special occasions, like Birthdays, Christmas, or other holidays. But there is no need to wait for those times. Everyday is a cause for celebration. The very fact that you are alive, the wondrous world around you, and the special people in your life are all reasons to rejoice. 

A wonderful realization will be the day you realize that you are unique in all the world. There is nothing that is an accident. You are a special combination for a purpose - and don't let them tell you otherwise... only you can fulfill that tiny space that is yours.

My sweet mother always reminded us, "Life is a gift." Unfortunately, that really didn't sink in until she and several other of my loved ones passed.

Have yourself a splendid day!

This has proven to be true over our lives:
Don't ever save anything for a special occasion.
Being alive is the special occasion.

Yep, every day I realize Life is a special occasion.

These words can not be underestimated. They mean so much. "Everyday is a cause for celebration. You are alive."
