Are You Taking Life for Granted? Ralph Smart Brings You Back To Gratitude

Are you taking life for granted?

Ralph Smart of Infinite Waters (Diving Deep) says he used to. So he wrote down some poetic thoughts to remind him to be deeply grateful for life.

Here they are:

Hold it.

Don’t let it go.

Make it last forever.

Life, what’s it all about?

Live it and you’ll find out.

Everybody’s searching.

Greedy for knowledge.

But who’s to blame?

When there is no right or wrong.

Life is a journey.

Let it take you places.

Broaden your horizons

Don’t be narrow-minded.

Life is a miracle.

Don’t wonder why you’re here.

Have no fear.

Because you never know what you’ve got,

Til it’s gone.

So I’m holding onto it.

Grab the moment.

Never let it go.

Make it last forever.

Love.

Never stop loving.

Even if you love a tree.

How can it be?

They don’t know.

Love is the only answer.

I said it before.

Don’t make me say it again.

When the world is crying,

Just look at the rain.

It pours down.

It doesn’t fall down.

Where did we go wrong?

What happened to those sunny days?

Let the sun shine.

What happened to those sunny days?

Say it one more time.

Because you never know what you’ve got.

until it’s gone.

So I’m holdling onto it.

Grab the moment.

Never let it go.

Make it last forever.

They say you live in the world you’re thinking of.

So I think of love.

So I live in love.

You see, life is full of choices, big decisions, contradictions.

We started off as butterflies.

As children, we could fly.

No fence.

No barrier.

And some still flying, but most lying, head down, because they lost their wings,

Lost their hope, their sense of “I am.”

Caught up in the midst of madness, thinking, why is life filled with sadness?

I know there’s more.

I know there’s more.

When I look at a rose,

How can that not be love?

Make it last forever.
