Encouraging Message: Live Each Moment Anew

Part of the reason for including encouraging messages as part of the NICU Parent Support Blog is because I have long been a believer in the power of words to help during difficult times. Encouraging words can be very helpful during challenging times. Words can be helpful in helping one cope with life's difficulties, because the words help us to shift and focus on something else that is positive.

British philosopher, Paul Brunton, who dedicating his life to an inward and spiritual quest offers these encouraging words about living each moment anew.

Every morning
is like a new reincarnation
into this world.

Let us take it then
for what it is
and live each moment anew.

Paul Brunton
Brunton's words of encouragement and hope can be very helpful for NICU parents struggling to make it through each day in the NICU, trying to put behind the bad days and focus on the good ones. This quote about remembering to live each moment, each new dawn anew can be helpful in getting through the challenging days and waking up to face the new day with a new start.

About is a network for grateful living. They are an international nonprofit organization provides resources for living in the gentle power of gratefulness, which restores courage, reconciles relationships, and heals our Earth.

If you want a dose of gratefulness in your life, I would encourage you to sign up for their Word for the Day that comes daily via email. I have received their messages of encouragement and hope for years.
