I saw this graphic this morning and it gave me pause.
Am I so focused hunting for happiness that I’m not enjoying life right now?
It’s an interesting question.
I remember when I was in university and all I thought about was making it through so I could finally live my life. I didn’t have time to sit back and enjoy the moment.
I see a lot of my friends and family on the hunt for happiness but not a lot of enjoyment going on.
I’ve got to work 80 hours a week so I can get this promotion. Then I can enjoy life.
Once the kids are grown up and graduate, then I can enjoy life.
I’ve got to graduate high school and then I can enjoy life.
It rings true for me.
Now and then (like today) it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.
Take today and live in the moment. Savor every minute of the day and just be happy!
