"Is it possible that I am so busy doing that I no longer have time to enjoy being?"
How often is it that we catch ourselves getting so caught up in this world that we don't even see the big picture? Our environment has so much to offer, so much in fact that it is easy to get engrossed with all the details. How can we get back to our own personal lives and enjoy living the way we are supposed to?
Today's society is filled with technology, internet, media, entertainment, advertisements, people, commotion, traffic, careers, deadlines, bills, family pressures, responsibilities, and expectations. How do we measure up? How do we keep up? They say stress is the number one cause of disease. The number one cause! So this means that we must make it a priority to rationalize and prioritize what is really important in our lives. How do we want our lives to take place? What are our dreams? What are we allowing into our thoughts and mind? Our daily choices and thoughts affect our lives more than we know it. So we must make it a habit to slow down and enjoy the scenery every once and a while. Slow down and appreciate life. Be truly grateful for all that you have in your life. Enjoy whatever makes you happy. Do the things that release stress from your life. There are so many options, we just have to remember to make the time in our lives for the things that we love.
How busy are you? Do you find your day whizzing by without enjoying it? Or are you doing what you love? Sometimes we do things because we think they are the right choices, the easy path, or because that is what is expected of us. But does it make you happy? It is time to make a choice and start living life the way you want to, however that may be. Who knows what life will bring? Who knows how long we will have? Now is the time to slow down and look at what is really going on. Take the time to enjoy life for all its worth. You won't be sorry.
