Good morning Melissa! I wanted to leave an inspiring message for you to start your day:
Salutation to the Dawn
Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities of your existence:
The bliss of growth
The glory of action
The splendor of beauty
For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow only a vision
But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Fully Alive People . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Fr. John Powell, SJ, A Life-Giving Vision, p. 4
"…fully alive people are those who are using all of their human faculties, powers and talents. They are using them to the full. These individuals are fully functioning in their external and internal senses. They are comfortable with and open to the full experience and expression of all human emotions. Such people are vibrantly alive in mind, heart, and will. There is an instinctive fear in most of us, I think, to travel with our engines at full throttle. We prefer, for the sake of safety, to take life in small doses. The fully alive person travels with the confidence that if one is alive and fully functioning in all parts and powers, the result will be harmony, not chaos."
