All we’ve got is this one breath

“Life is a gift. I went through a lot of bitterness, a lot of anger. But those things are toxic. Gratitude for what remains is more helpful than resentment for what was lost. Ultimately, I came to understand that these days are wicked short and terribly beautiful. All I’ve got—no matter what I hold in my hands, drive around in, or put in the bank, all I’ve got is this one breath, and if I’m lucky, I get another.” Sam Baker, singer/songwriter who was profiled on NPR today
