A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Some people take that step with a strong sense of enthusiasm and adventure. Some people remain idle out of fear of the unknown.
Life is about time and with whom you spend your time with. Life entails the births, vacations, celebrations, the passing of loved ones and the memories made through the good times and the bad.
Some people judge their life by the title they have, the money they make or the material possessions that they own. While there are others who don’t judge their life at all, they just live it one moment at a time soaking in every precious moment.
Sometimes the most simply times in life can be the best of times. If you look at a child and the simple things that make their world the happiest it can be, is done by simple things. Jumping rope, playing ball, swinging on a swing or riding a bike brings about fun and laughter. They live in a life of simplicity.
As adults we complicate things by the need to have more or the latest thing available to us. Sure, we want to make our life easier and less complicated. All the apps that are available help us to attain that.
We can use the phrase, “go outside and play,” to our advantage as an adult. We can cut down on our computer time and flip the off button on our gadgets and get back to the basics. The question you have to ask yourself is, “Are you truly living life?” Only you can answer that one!
No one is guaranteed the next moment in life. Some of the best memories can be made by a simple picnic, flying a kite or a day spent fishing. Life doesn’t have to be costly. A person can have the smallest space and still be creative. A person doesn’t have to have the finest of vehicles to get where they’re going.
We think the more we have and the bigger we have will bring us more happiness. It might, momentarily. Happiness comes within. True happiness is being happy in a 2 X 2 area and a 2,000 ft area. Happiness is not only about you being happy but about touching other people’s lives and spreading your happiness to others.
Each day is a celebration of being alive. Life is a gift, not to be taken lightly. Each life and each day we are given is a blessing. Every moment is a blessing. Don’t waste it on trivial things. Live each day with gratitude for all the blessings that you have and all the people that you are blessed with in your life.
The beautiful thing about life is that we are all the same. We all bleed the same, we all have emotions and we all share space on this vast world. I might not know someone by name in another country, but I assure you that that person feels joy, pain and all the other emotions that I do. We might not live the same life, but we are connected through some of our experiences. We might not speak the same language to communicate our emotions, but a smile can speak a thousand words.
May your heart always feel love, your stomach be full, your worries be few and your life be full of happiness. Celebrate life and celebrate each other.
