Simplicity seems to be a lost art in most busy lives today. It’s too bad because many people don’t have time or take the time to stop and notice what surrounds them. When we remember to do this, there’s always something interesting to see and if we’re lucky, something beautiful to lift our spirits.
People from many different spiritual beliefs promote “living in the moment”, “being present”, and “taking one day at a time”. This recurring theme seems to be an ideal way to live if we want to enjoy life. How many of us actually do this on a regular basis?
It takes so little time to stop, take a deep breath, and look around to take in where we are, what we’re doing, who’s there, and to relish the fact that we’re alive. When we actually do this though, we get more in touch with who we are and why we’re here.
When we think about who we are and why we’re here, then we’re better able to overcome negative details that can drag us down. Thinking about the bigger picture inspires us to keep putting one foot in front of the other and moving towards our ideal of what we want for ourselves.
The most important things in life start with simple things such as love for our selves and others. Please take the time today to acknowledge yourself for who you are and what you do to enjoy life. Happiness is the key to good health!
