Daily Meditation for May 19, 2022

According to the National Day calendar, tomorrow, May 20, is Be a Millionaire Day. How do you think you’d feel if you were informed that you just won a million dollars? WOW…most of us would jump for joy and scream, “I can’t believe it!” Most likely you’d feel blown away. How could I be so lucky? Maybe you’d start to think of how you’d use the money. AND—YET—with a bit of reflection—maybe each of us would realize that we ARE millionaires. If we have good health—that indeed is worth millions. If we have poor health—most likely we get tender care and have good family and friends to respond to your needs. We are indeed rich in so many ways—having good friends, family, parents, grandchildren, a place we call home, beauty of nature, sunshine and rain. We are millionaires when we compare ourselves with the people of Ukraine. We have so many reasons to celebrate Be a Millionaire Day tomorrow.
