it didn't have to exist

The beautiful trees in your favorite park didn’t have to exist. 

Your favorite food spot didn’t have to exist.

Your most cherished friendships didn’t have to exist. 

but they do.

It’s easy for your sense of awe to fizzle out after something has been around for awhile, it happens to all of us. 

But you can quickly summon it back in full force by reminding yourself that it — the park, the food, the people— didn’t have to exist and yet by sheer luck you got the opportunity to exist alongside them.

When you take this observation to heart, it’s not unusual to find yourself speechless. 

There are so many things around you on any given day that are worth being in awe of, that remind you just how incredible it is to be alive.
