Take a little time to be grateful…for you!

Do you ever find yourself running around, carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders in an overloaded machine-like state?  Whether we work hard, play hard, or do some combination of both, it can be easy getting caught up in the drama of life.  After all, we’ve got things to do, places to be, people to meet, deadlines to fulfill.  In living our busy lives, it can be easy taking for granted one of our most precious gifts.  That is, this amazingly intelligent and exquisite thing we call our body. 

When was the last time you took a moment to acknowledge your body for the work it does for you every second of every day?  If it’s been awhile, here is your opportunity!  Your body performs hundreds of thousands of functions for you on a daily basis without you having to be conscious of them.  For those of you who suffer from a chronic and/or debilitating illness, or even those of you who experience mild unpleasant symptoms in your life, you may at times feel frustrated with what is going on inside your body.  But no matter who you are, your body is working hard for you and always trying to overcome the obstacles that are placed in its path.  So take a moment every so often, and reflect on the wonderful gift that you have been given.  Your body will surely take better care of you throughout your life knowing how much you appreciate it!
