Begin Each Day As If It Were On Purpose

This picture was taken early today on my ride home from morning basketball, or the MBA as we like to call it. I have been participating in MBA play for almost a full year now, and let me tell you, it is a great way to get the day started. There is nothing quite like working up a sweat with some of the greatest people in your life. Another great thing about being up so early is that I get to see some of the best sunrises this state has to offer. Granted, this particular sunrise is not the most beautiful one I have ever seen, but it sure does make one thankful for being able to see it.

As strange as it may sound, the first thing I do when I wake up every single morning and when I go to bed every single night is silently thank the Creator for allowing me to live another day. I know I’m young, but I could go at any moment, so I want to make sure I live my life in a way that will bring a smile to the faces of all I encounter. Things have been pretty great lately for a number of reasons, but I’m not about settling. There is so much more love and drive in my heart, and I cannot wait to see the fruits of all my hard work pay off. In the words of my pal Alex Hitchins:

“Begin each day as if it were on purpose.”
