There is an excellent Congolese song I learned from my dear friend Elie Kihonia called Mutwashi. In the song, the lyrics translate as "We are giving thanks for being alive today." In light of the recent events in Haiti, this sentiment has never felt more true to me. Just to have the opportunity to wake up and live again is a gift. Seeing people being pulled alive from the rubble after ten days gives me pause to reflect and remember to be grateful not only for my family, health and abundance- but also for the chance to try again.
I'm interested to hear from you on this...
When do you feel most alive?
