Just because....

A Life Worth Living…

I think that often, we get so hung up on where we want to be that we forget to enjoy where we are at that moment in time…  I have been guilty of this myself. “When the boys are older…. When I lose the weight… When I finish X,Y or Z…” I have learned over time not to focus on where I want to be, but instead to cherish the moment at hand…. to enjoy life as it happens, not in what the future holds.

I think about my future, plan for my future, but take the time to truly enjoy the present… Life is not always easy or how I planned, but it is a beautiful life I have been given and I truly am grateful for that. I am thankful for all of the little moments that lead up to a life worth living.  Every moment of everyday is a blessing and as we live our lives, those moments of simplicity are woven into the memories we cherish.

Nothing is worth more than this day...
Nothing is worth more than this day….

It’s all the little things in our lives that add up to happiness within ourselves…. I don’t need to look ahead to find something worth bringing me joy. That joy is in all of the moments I am living right now in the present…

To me, what I try to remember most is that nothing is worth more than the day we are in… It’s all these moments that make up the journey of our lives. It isn’t the destination of our future that should be our goal, but rather the moments that make the journey…

Happiness is a journey...not a destination....
Happiness is a journey… not a destination….

I am so blessed to have two amazing kiddos to help me make that journey! Life may be filled with surprises , but they keep me grounded and as I look at them I can’t help to remember the journey we take as a family are the moments I will cherish. I’d love to hear from my readers, what are the little moments that bring you the most joy?

Moments with my boys are my favorite blessings...

    I struggle with this on a daily basis as well. I mentally live in the future and find it difficult to live in the present and enjoy each moment as it happens. Thanks for the reminder to remain present! 🙂

    1. Hi Emi! I’m glad I could help 🙂

  2. So very true! Being in the moment is hard to do but it essential for happiness.

    I’ve been really working to live in the moment. Appreciate the now and enjoy my family every moment that I can. I think it’s very important because we’re not promised tomorrow, so we need to live each day as if it could be our last!

    1. hi Jos! I absolutely agree!

  5. Thank you for this – it’s exactly what I needed to read today! I’m so guilty of looking to something in the future to be happy or excited about and I really need to make more of an effort to enjoy the present.

    1. Your welcome Trisha… 🙂

  6. It’s so important to remember that EVERY day is a gift, even now. Sometimes it’s hard to do, but it makes all the difference in the world!

    1. Hi Corey! Every single day is absolutely a gift… 🙂
