We are often so busy getting to work or school, getting the next assignment done, or checking items off our “To Do” list we forget to pause and enjoy the moment. Our life will not all of sudden one day become happy. Our lives are made up of years. Our years are made up of days and our days are made up of moments. How we spend the collection of those moments will determine how we spend our lives.
Pause and enjoy a beautiful sky or the smile of a friend. Appreciate a co-worker who helps you out. Stop and think about how lucky you are to have family or friends you can count on. Take a break and enjoy the laughter of children. Linger on the goodbye kiss before you go to work.
Don’t fast forward through your life and miss the good parts. Take time to enjoy the moments.
“Because how we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.” – Annie Dillard
