I like a song from the musical Hair called, I Got Life. I love that song. It reminds me that I’m alive. I have life. It’s my greatest possession. Without life, I couldn’t experience anything that’s currently in my life.
I like to think about this because it helps me put things in perspective. I have the most valuable thing. There’s nothing else I could get that would be better. That doesn’t mean I live with nothing, but knowing that I have life brings me satisfaction and fulfillment. I feel less needy.
You and I both have this greatest possession. We are lucky!
