When you arise …

When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.

Marcus Aurelius

On this Wisdom Wednesday I wanted to share this quote that has been in my work email signature for quite some time now.  I have made it my practice to do this every morning.  Seeing this reminder throughout my day has helped me keep things in perspective.  Incidentally, my brush with death has made these privileges even more precious.


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
