That's life

To wake up in the morning,
with sunshine through your window,
To know you have a choice each day,
starting afresh.

To find joy in everyday,
acknowledge simple pleasures,
To live in the present moment,
engaging your awareness.

To count the blessings in life,
To enjoy the work you do,
following your passion,
To be what you are.

Listening to your inner being,
To smile at friends,
seeing how infectious it can be.

To speak words of kindness,
spreading a little warmth,
To understand with compassion,
opening up your mind.

To appreciate the nature,
soaking up all the beauty,
To see the falling night,
concluding a well-lived day.

That's life,
and that's the core of what really matters.
