Chapter 7, Page 26, Book 18

Every day I wake up, it’s a privilege to be able to go outside and do what I love…

Venus Williams

We take the privileges we have for granted

Understand that the right to choose your own path is a sacred privilege.  Use it .  Dwell in possibility.

Oprah Winfrey

It is truly a privilege to be alive and do what I want, when I want and how I want to.  So many do not have the privileges I have due to where they live, work, or because of sickness or disability.    I really should not ever have any reason to complain. 

Compared to what some go through, my life has been a piece of cake.  There has been much more sweetness in it, than the bitterness that life some times brings our way and I am very thankful for that.

The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.

Joseph Campbell

I’m not perfect, nor am I rich but still I have everything I need.  I believe this is a privilege not of my own making but is a gift from God.  That is why I count my blessings every day and am so very thankful for them.

There are days that I forget the wonderful privileges I do have in life, but then I hear about the unfortunate, the needy and the forgotten and remember to always be thankful for what I have.

Life is a gift, and it offers the privilege , opportunity , and responsibility to give something back by becoming more.

Tony Robbins

Sometimes we get so caught up in the everyday struggles in life that it is hard to remember all the privileges we have. I hope you have a wonderful Thursday- xo Diana

I too remind myself often of how blessed I am compared to so many. When I type reports of people younger than me with a long list of medical diagnoses and medications they are on, I try to thank God for the good health I have. We truly are blessed, no matter what, with what we have been given.

Perspective is a mighty thing, isn't it?
And privilege! I actually GET to choose the direction I'm going to take today v. being ordered this way or that. So blessed!
