      It is wonderful to treat every moment of life with joy. To feel the thrill of life every day.

      YAY! I love David Cain. I discovered him a few years ago on Readup. I consistently adopted this style of living about 10 years ago and it’s life changing. Accepting all moments in life with equal appreciation opens me up to the infinite possibilities that makes life magical and mysterious. It’s super creative and expansive.
