This might sound a little dark. Perhaps even a little depressing, but I regularly reflect on the possibility of my own death. I even have a little hand written post it note on my cars dashboard that displays the words "Tomorrow may never come".
"Tomorrow may never come"
This reflection builds a sense gratitude and urgency. How lucky I am to be alive, to be here right now. How lucky I am to have another day to live, to breathe and play. How precious each interaction and experience I have is. From this perspective, everything seems a little more beautiful, a little more luminous. I truly appreciate my life and the people in it. I approach my day with less fear and more passion.
