The powerful gift below was recently featured on Super Soul Sunday. Mark Nepo shares that while the book containing it is now out of print, he’s happy to share. I’m honored to present it here for you…


If you have one hour of air
and many hours to go,
you must breathe slowly.

If you have one arm’s length
and many things to care for,
you must give freely.

If you have one chance to know God
and many doubts, you must
set your heart on fire.

We are blessed.

Every day is a chance.
We have two arms
Fear wastes air.
