You are Amazing

Your body is amazing. You have 400 BILLION nerve cells that are constantly being renewed. In your lifetime your heart will beat 3,000 million times and pump 48 million gallons of blood. Your thigh bones are stronger than concrete. In the next 24 hours you will breathe 23,040 times. And all that from a body that is 80% water!

Your mind is amazing. The more you know about how people think, the more you discover there is to know. Your brain is the most complicated and intriguing unit in the universe – and you carry it around with you everywhere you go! You use only a fraction of your vast mind reserves in your lifetime.

Yet you live every day with the consequences of its feverish behind-the-scenes activity.  How you think, work, choose, live with past choices, and view the future, are all decided here in the hidden depths of your amazing mind.

Yet you are so much more than just a body and a mind. You are a human person. You have memories and aspirations, fears, challenges, passions and opinions, the ability to connect with others through language (or a look, or a touch), and the desire to be fully yourself. Who you have been, who you are now, and how you will be tomorrow, matters. 

Let’s make the most of it.
