It’s not just another day. It’s a gift.

As we come into this season of gratitude, I went back to the archives to find one of my favorite videos featuring time lapse photography from the incomparable Louie Schwartzberg.

The first time I featured Moving Art on the blog was in 2013.  I found myself sharing it again in 2014. And now it is appearing for this year. It is a work that continues to come back to me and stays front of mind because its message is so compelling.

Our days are as unique as our fingerprints. No single day is just like another. That philosophy is expressed here beautifully.

We spend our day well when we treat each one as if it is our first and our last. By doing that from a place of gratitude, that spills out to the world as a blessing and our day is enriched even more.

“You think this is just another day in your life.

It’s not just another day.

It’s the one day that is given to you today.

It’s given to you. It’s a gift.

It’s the only gift that you have right now.

And the only appropriate response is gratefulness.”

Live today like you want tomorrow to be. Live well
