Many people are focused on how they can improve their lives or make their circumstances better. With that focus, it is easy to overlook the value in our present situations. You don’t need to change anything about yourself or your situation to enjoy your life more. There is a lot more juice to be squeezed out of the oranges you’ve already got!
The simple secret to enjoying life more is to fully savor our experiences. Something as ordinary as sipping a cup of tea can be such a pleasure if we just allow ourselves to relax completely and enjoy the present moment. If we are constantly imagining how much better things could be in the future, we can forget to acknowledge and enjoy how great things already are. You’ll see how rich the present moment is, if you can just drop the idea that it needs to be better.
I am not saying that you shouldn’t have future goals and dreams. By all means, dream big dreams, and go for what you want in life. Just remember to stop and smell the roses along the path! It is simple advice and you may have heard it before, but it is so easy to forget. It is easy to get caught up in what we want, that we neglect enjoying what we’ve already got.
And here’s the icing on the cake – you’ll discover that the more you enjoy the present, the better the future that you naturally create for yourself. Life is always happening now and by being present to it, we align ourselves with reality. We get into the flow of life.
There is no limit to how much you can enjoy the present moment when you realize that nothing needs to change!
