Enjoying the moment
Growing up we’re always looking forward to the next step/phase in life. When we’re children we want to be teens, when we’re teens, we want to be adults, when we’re adults, we’re too busy looking at “making it” in life that we forget to live in the moment. Sound familiar? Why do we rush through life without enjoying every moment of it? You know how now you think back and say, “Man, I should’ve just enjoyed being a child and worried about growing up later.”
I recently came to the realization that I wasn’t enjoying the moments I was living in. I was always worried about the next phase in my life that I failed to see the beauty in my day to day. I think in a sense that had to do with me being at and living in a place I wasn’t in love with. My move changed that. My move changed a lot of things about me and I think many of you have been able to see that since it’s been such a visible change. I’m a very different person but at the same time, I’m the same person in essence.
A few weeks ago when I realized this, I made a decision to not worry about the future or the next phase in my life but rather enjoy the present, my day by day. I don’t want to look back in life and think that I lost out on the special moments in life because I was so worried about what was to come. Life is beautiful and worth enjoying. It’s the small things in life that make it beautiful so don’t miss out on them by worrying about stuff that hasn’t even happened yet. Take it day by day, because you know what? The future will work itself out and all will fall into place as it should.
