Have you ever heard of the saying “Today is a gift and that’s why we call it the present.”? Well just waking up and planting your feet firmly on the ground should feel just like unwrapping that perfect gift on Christmas morning.

I can remember waking up on Christmas morning when I was little girl. My younger brother, Kyle, and I would have so much joy bouncing up at 5 am and tearing open each gift that Santa brought us. AWEESSOMMME is what would immediately come out of our mouths as we saw what each gift was. Throughout the day, we would continue to play with our new toys and find happiness examining each one.

I am 25 years old and my goal is to find that same joy as I did opening those presents Christmas morning. Today is a gift. As each second passes we cannot get the last back, so why not enjoy and make the most out of today?  In life, we all take things for granted. I know from experience. There are days where I just want to be in a bitter mood, but then I smile by faith and know that things will turn around.

Cherish the important people in your life, for they wont be here forever. Be happy with where you are today. Smile at someone (you never know, it might make their day).
