Make Every Day Count

benbuie | 3/24/14

We could all be reminded more often to make every moment count in life. One of my favorite quotes of all time is from Kung Fu Panda:

“Quit, don’t quit? Noodles, don’t noodles? You are too concerned about what was and what will be. There is a saying: yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the ‘present.'”

Sometimes when I wake up in the morning I just lay in bed, take a deep breath, and thank my creator for the blessing of doing that. Because I woke up another day, I have another chance to do something good.

Take a second to hear the story in this video about making every second count.
