It is very common for someone to say when I get that promotion, or meet the perfect person, or finish school, or lose that 25 pounds I will be happy, and feel great. I have no doubt that achieving goals, and propelling your life to a more positive state is a great thing on many levels. My question is when did we stop enjoying the moment we are in, or at least enjoying the day or the week? I think we end up spending so much time living in the possibilities of the what could, and the what if, that we lose so much of the moments we are in at that time.
I have always tried to remind everyone I get the privilege to chat with to remember that life is nothing more than a series of moments. We have great ones, good ones, happy ones and sad ones, the moments can be life changing and memorable, and some we may never want to remember or experience again. All we can hope for is that we end up with more happy then sad, and more good then bad. I have learned that if we break things down to the smaller picture everything from solving difficult questions, making important decisions and satisfying goals become more achievable and more doable.
What I have hope for is that we slow down a bit, take more time to enjoy the moments, and learn to appreciate all we have already achieved thus far in our life, and not live only for what may or not come or way.
