Enjoy Now, It’s All You Have

Enjoy now, it’s all you have

Being present is an important key to happiness.

“I’ll be happy when ….
….I’m slimmer
….I have more money
….I have a boyfriend / girlfriend
….The kids are out of nappies
….The kids go to school
….I have a better job”

And so it goes on!

 

How often have you caught yourself declaring this? Surely it would be a great idea to be happy now!

 

When I clear out old drawers or cupboards I often find old diaries or logs. I look back on my weight goal when I was 25 and seriously if only I could turn the clock back and slap myself into realisation that I was a very healthy weight and size as I was!

What was I chasing? Some idealistic version of perfection that for many is unrealistic and undermining.

Of course, I still catch myself “wishing” however, I am now extremely disciplined and quickly focus on what about this moment I am grateful for and therefore more than happy with my lot as it is.

From this place of positivity, I can focus my energy on what I can do to progress my life towards my goals confident in the knowledge that I am enjoying the journey.

Have a great week,
