We miss so much as we rush to fulfill our daily obligations. We forget to take time to pause and seize the moment. After a stressful day at work, I always make sure to take a little walk to the park to connect with nature. It is such a blessing to enjoy the scent and the colors and soak in the beauty around me.
When it’s cold or freezing, we had our share this past winter; I usually sit in the car for 5 to 10 minutes before going inside the house. I listen to some music and still find a way to get in touch with nature in the warmth of my car.
Working in a stressful environment, I witness how people fight for their lives. I am looking at children who are unable to be kids as they are dealing with debilitating sicknesses. I have learned to appreciate life. I have learned to enjoy simple pleasures and make every second count.
As you are reading my post, stop for a minute and identify one thing you are grateful and from there, let’s seize the moment.
Together, let’s enjoy every second regardless of our circumstances. It will come a time, where all those little moments that we are taking for granted will be wishes, missed opportunities, or regrets. Remember the small things in life often have a deep impact. Take time to live that one life we have.
Wake up early and take pleasure in the pure silence of your home
Take pleasure in sipping your cup of coffee
Enjoy a walk in the park and connect with nature
Let the sun caress your face and be thankful for it.
If it’s raining, smile and smell the freshness
Live, laugh, smile and don’t stress about tomorrow, things will take their course. Only this minute is our present.
