“Don’t count the days, make the days count.”
– Muhammad Ali
Ciao, everyone, and welcome to Day #58 in A Year of Positivity! Today’s quote comes from the mighty Muhammad Ali, “Don’t count the days, make the days count.” This is a short but powerful message from the famous boxer.
Each new day that’s presented to us should be greeted with an eager smile and genuine warmth. Each day we wake up breathing and living and writing another day in the book of our lives is another opportunity to make the best of what we’ve got.
In the grand scheme of things, the universe, everything in existence, we’re just a speck on this planet, and this planet is one grain of sand in all of existence. The fact that we’re alive on the only planet that we know of has life, that alone is an incredible miracle! There’s so much beauty in everything around us. Personally, if I didn’t have a busy life of things I need to do with obligations that need to be met, I’d be one of the people just spending all my time in nature. She’s so amazing and majestic and magical and awe-inspiring that it literally brings me to tears to my eyes as I write this.
We have such a vast array of plants and trees and fruits and vegetables, along with many species not only on land, not only in the air but also in the waters too. There are animals and insects on this planet that are close to extinction, and there are creatures we have yet to discover. Everything living in the past, present, or future is born, and it lives for a certain time, and then it dies. This includes humanity as well, as we’re also living, breathing creatures.
I’m so incredibly thankful to be alive. To be here on this planet that’s just sooo full of life and beauty and grace. I would definitely prefer to make the most of my days. After all, we never know when our last day will truly be our last day. It’s important to be aware of this, so that we live our best lives.
Our lives are just a few moments in time.
Make the most of its beauty before it’s gone.
So, don’t count the days, make the days count.
