The gift of life

The joy of life comes not from getting what we want, but from appreciating what we have.  

As we age and the idea of our own mortality comes into focus, we come to realise that death is inevitable and can fully understand that life is precious. 

We can begin to see the beauty in everyday moments and the value in relationships.  We can learn to let go of grudges and resentments, and to find joy in the simple things. 

The joy of life is not about being happy all the time – it’s about finding meaning and purpose in our lives, despite the hardships we may face. 

Ultimately, it’s about learning to appreciate the gift of life itself, and the sooner we can understand this, the more of our lives we can truly enjoy.
