I just bought this print (which you've probably seen floating around blogland) as a reminder to myself to simply be present. Every year that I get older I remind myself that each day, each year, each birthday is an incredible gift. Even when the mundane aspects of life threaten to bog me down or when I find myself annoyed and angry at silly things, or when something tragic and terrible happens and I have to endure some sort of suffering, I realize that this is it. This day is what we have, it's what we've been given and we should choose to be present (through the good, the bad, and the ugly). It's going to hang in my bathroom so that I can see it every morning when I get ready to face a new day.
