Riddle: Guess What This Is?
I used to get this gift all the time as a kid and it made me happy and creative.
But as I grew up and “life happened”, I forgot about it over the years.
So what is it?
It’s a gift you can get everyday for free.
You can see it but you can’t touch it.
It’s available all the time…
but it’s never the same…
That’s why when you receive it, you must enjoy it.
Cause in a second it’s gone.
So what is it?
Before I share with you, let’s talk about gratitude first.
The More Gratitude the Better
Like you, not everyday is smooth sailing and easy.
Especially when you have to be a loving father, a husband AND still run two businesses at the same time AND still do the things you want to do.
I’ve discovered the easiest solution to life when things get hectic and stressful is to be grateful.
Gratitude goes a long long way and that’s why I start each morning by giving out my Daily Dose of Gratitude.
I’ve learned to take a brief moment everyday to appreciate the small things in life.
The more gratitude the better!
I used to worry that if I was “too grateful”, then I would get complacent and lazy and not be motivated.
But the opposite has turned out to be true.
When you consciously make yourself aware of gratitude, not only do you get happier because you realize that things are not as bad as you think they are.
Gratitude INSPIRES US and MOTIVATES us to do more.
So I’m always looking out to express more gratitude every second of my life.
And the more I’ve do this, I am happier and also more productive.
The Free Gift That Never Stops
So here is the answer to the riddle.
It’s the amazing gift that you can get anytime anywhere but it never lasts.
Most people love natural beauty and that’s why real estate with “views” cost more.
For example, people pay extra to live in a house with a water view.
But we can get a beautiful view anytime for free!
It’s the beautiful sky that we all live under.
Whether it is sunny, slightly cloudy, raining, snowing or dark, every sky is unique and a thing of beauty.
It’s a thing of beauty and every sky is different.
If it is clear blue sky, what is the shade of blue?
If it is cloudy, what are the formations of the clouds?
If it is raining, what shade of grey is it?
If it’s dark, how do the stars look?
What shape is the moon and how is it positioned in the sky?
Thanks again to Jeremy for reminding me of this amazing gift that we have every second of the day.
So how does your sky look like right now?
This is what it looks like while I’m writing this at 630am in Los Angeles.
What’s your sky looking like right now?
Go look up and appreciate the beauty.
It’s a gift that you can get anytime anywhere but it won’t last long.
So go enjoy your free gift now.
And be grateful.
Gratitude creates happiness… and happiness inspires us to do our best!
