Wake Up With Enthusiasm

Every morning when you wake up, you are given another day of life. This gift of life is precious. To say that it's precious is really a colossal understatement. Being alive is more valuable than anything else that one can own and possess. The greater your appreciation for being alive, the more enthusiastic you will be when wake up each morning.

Your Creator gives you life this moment for a reason. Your life is purposeful. Just imagine the enthusiasm you are going to experience when you realize that the Creator and Sustainer of the universe is saying to you, "I am giving you life this very moment. Appreciate it."

(From "Enthusiasm: formulas, stories, and insights" (2002) pp.34-5; available from http://www.artscroll.com)

avoiding advice

After waking up one can do their daily chores. One can act and think in any manner one considers fit. During the day one may come across some interesting ideas. One may ignore it, may take a little notice or it may have an interesting effect on one all by itself. Whatever the outcome one will have learned something or have been helped in some way either by the ideas or not by the ideas for one can still make headway in both cases
