Life is a gift

We all have one of those days or weeks where we really wonder if it’s all really worth it. Sometimes when one thing after another gets on top of us we don’t appreciate life as much as we should.

I find this poem by Mother Theresa is one of those poems you dig out when you need reminding of that reason to keep getting up in the morning.

Life Is A Gift

Life is an opportunity,  benefit from it.
Life is beauty,  admire it.
Life is bliss,  taste it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge,  meet it.
Life is a duty,  complete it.
Life is a game,  play it.
Life is a promise,  fulfill it
Life is sorrow,  overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle,  accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure,  dare it.
Life is luck,  make it.
Life is too precious,  do not destroy it.
Life is life,  fight for it.

by Mother Theresa
