Have you ever noticed how often we rush to get somewhere or do things quickly, without enjoying the journey that leads towards what we want?
When I was born, I wanted to be old enough to crawl.
When I was old enough to crawl, I wanted to walk.
When I was old enough to walk, I wanted to cycle.
When I did cycle, I wanted to be old enough to drive a car.
When I was old enough o drive a car I wanted a car to go out!
When I was old enough to go out, I wanted to have a drink.
When I was old enough to have a drink and go out, I wanted a relationship.
When I was old enough and had a relationship, I wanted to get married. When I was married, I wanted to have children.
When I had children, I wanted them to grow up.
When they grew up, they left home.
And now I’m old. I look back and think where the time has gone?
The days, weeks, months, years have passed and often forgotten what I did have and what there was to enjoy.
So do stop and listen at times and enjoy the present moment. Be happy to enjoy what you’ve got, and can do now. The present moment is all you have. The rest is either in the past or in the future.
Eckhart Tolle ones said; ‘gratitude for the present moment and the fullness of life NOW is real prosperity’.
Don’t wait for everything to be perfect before you decide to enjoy life!
Although life can be a roller coaster, it’s up to you to enjoy the ride!
Enjoy the moment NOW!
