We all have only 1440 minutes in a day. How are you spending these precious moments of your life?

Spending time with the people you love?
Noticing the beauty of all that is around you?
Are you writing your own story and living fully in this grand adventure of your life?
Watch this video The Jelly Bean Life for a beautiful reminder of how precious your days are. And remember – You don’t know how many jelly beans are left but you can choose to fully enjoy them.
WRITING & REFLECTION:

What are you going to do with this precious day?
