I was in line at a store yesterday and the person next to me and I struck up conversation. We talked about random things in life and all of a sudden he mentioned several things that are a wonderful reminder and I wanted to pass it on to you. The gentleman said “We don’t know what each day will bring, get up and enjoy life, live it to it’s fullest, enjoy every day, and take life as it comes.” We all know this, but sometimes we get so busy and lost in the craziness of life that we do not remember this all of the time. I hope this is a good reminder for you, it sure was for me.
Our words are so very powerful, good or bad, they have the power to make or break us and each other. Sometimes people don’t realize the affect that they can have. This gentleman was just talking and sharing his wisdom, he didn’t realize how much I needed to hear his reminder and how I am still thinking about it today.
Life will take you down many different paths. Things will be thrown at you that make you question yourself and the world and people around you, but make a promise to yourself that you will always strive every day to make life exactly the way you want it to be. Go through the motions of life and know that you are exactly where you need to be at this time.
I think I want to start a gratitude journal. So often we long so much for things that we don’t take the true time to appreciate what we already have. Some of the things that we have now were once things that we only prayed and dreamed of. Life definitely has its ups and downs and we are in a constant state of learning. If we can see right in front of us all of the positive things that we have going for ourselves, I feel it would help us greatly. We have so much for be thankful for, so fortunate, so blessed.
What are you grateful for today? Do you have a gratitude journal? Our very life is a gift and a blessing, it gives us a chance to learn and better ourselves every single day. Have a beautiful weekend!
One thing that never ceases to amaze me is how fast time flies and how much life changes. I will think of a memory, or see a picture from years ago and wonder how in the world that much time has passed when it felt like yesterday. We are constantly changing, life is constantly changing. In a way change is comforting and in a way it is not. There is not much stability in life, we must learn to adapt to new surroundings, people, and ways of life because as the saying goes, the only constant in life is change.
Good morning! What are you excited about this week? Having something to look forward to can really bring happiness to your life.
When you are going about your day, or your week, have something that you are looking forward to. It could be something as simple as going home after a long day, a hot drink, your favorite show, the drive home from work while listening to your favorite music, or even your favorite snack. Life is full of simple pleasures and by being able to look forward to them, you can really add a lot of happiness and gratitude in your life. Have a beautiful week!
