Are You a Victim or Victor?

Albert Einstein once said, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing were a miracle. The other as though everything is a miracle.”

I love this quote as it empowers us all to be able to make a choice about how we live our life. Do you see opportunities and possibilities or only dark clouds hanging over your life?  What we think effects how we feel and in turn effects what we do. Your thoughts are powerful so choose them carefully!

Think about how you feel and the energy that you get when you receive a smile from a stranger on the street, find a dollar bill on the ground, get a surprise phone call from a good friend, or feel the sunshine streaming through your window.

Our lives are precious and finite so why spend it fretting about the past or worrying about the future. The present moment is all we really have.¬†Living with cancer or other life threatening illnesses enables us to be fully present even though as the late Randy Pausch (The Last Lecture) says ‘we cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand.’

So just for today… choose to be a victor in your own life and see miracles all around you!
