28 Mar Live For The Moments!
Live For The Moments!
I am a huge believer in setting big outcomes for my life, committing to them, and then making the choices that move me towards those outcomes. I will readily admit though, in the past, I was so focused on my outcome that I lost sight of the moments. The moments that make getting to that outcome even sweeter. The moments that remind me how amazing life is. The moments that fill my heart with joy. It’s a bit cheesy, even for me, however, the JOY really is in the JOURNEY.
So often when we set an outcome, we only see one way to get there, and when we limit ourselves to that one way, we miss all of the other possible routes. Instead, when we stay in the moment, truly finding the joy in each moment, we now see that there are many ways to get to our outcomes. We realize we don’t have to sacrifice today for a tomorrow that isn’t guaranteed and may never come.
It’s OK to stop and watch the sunset during your run – the exercise still counts. It’s OK to make it to your daughter’s dance recital even though there is still work to be done. The work will be there tomorrow. It’s OK to squeeze a little tighter and longer when saying goodbye to those you love. (We call that the Hug and Hold.) That right there is a win/win moment. The JOY really is in the JOURNEY, not in the destination.
You will only get this day once, and you get to choose how you live it. What moment will you create, or just enjoy, that you can hold in your heart forever?
