Don't Forget To Enjoy the Little ThingsA Lesson by Akshat♥
little things do matter...
How many times have you heard the phrase “don’t forget to stop and smell the roses?”
When we think about enjoying life, we often dream about our “someday”, and how we will enjoy life when we have achieved our goals. We may be doing everything right to get there – we write out our goals, align our actions with those goals, and keep a success journal to help us along the way – but we often forget a very important step.
We forget to smell the roses.
We forget that we have to slow down, and take time to enjoy the little things in our life right now. No matter where you are in your life journey at this moment, there are a million things around you that you should be enjoying and celebrating.
If you were to sit down today and marvel at how far you have come, appreciate the people who are currently in your life, and be amazed by how much you actually have, you would be in awe. One of the keys to enjoying your life to the fullest is to take time to enjoy all the little things.
To enjoy them, you must first identify them. Take time to yourself and think about what you have in your life right now. What makes you happy? What are you proud of? What are you passionate about? Happiness doesn’t always consist of a big house, fancy car, or booming bank account. It can be found in a beautiful sunset, the smile of a loved one, the satisfaction of a job well done, or a variety of other places you probably take for granted.
When I look back on my life so far, I realize it is all the little things that have compiled together to define who I am today. While working at fulfilling my dreams, I still make sure I enjoy the roses in my life. My beautiful wife, my children, my family, my friends, a quiet cup of coffee on my deck, a laugh shared in the office with my team, the list goes on.
To enjoy life to the fullest, start by appreciating and enjoying what you already have, even if they just seem like “little things”. Remember, as John McLeod once said, “Life holds so many simple blessings, each day bringing its own individual wonder.” Make sure you don’t miss out on the wonder your life holds right now, at this moment. Enjoy your life for what it will become, but mostly for what it already is.
