Enjoy it While You Can

“You do what you can for as long as you can, and when you finally can’t, you do the next best thing. You back up but you don’t give up.” General Chuck Yeager

 

When it comes to life, there are many statements people regularly say. However, one statement that I often hear is “enjoy it while you can.”  This exact phrase may not be used, but the concept will be; life changes so embrace the good days…today.

Life is an endless change.  We change careers, vehicles, homes, states, and even our shoes.  We upgrade, downgrade, swap, or exchange.  It seems to never end.  However, as one thing comes to an end, we always reminisce.  We love to remember the ‘old days’ and think about how great they were.  We think to ourselves: “if only I could be there again.”  Although the memories are sweet, we tend to forget to focus on something of great importance.

We forget to enjoy the moment we are in!  There are a million reasons to celebrate today.  Looking back at the past and all the nostalgia that comes with it takes away from the beauty we have in our lives today.  There are many moments that we take for granted.  Many times we should be thankful and happy with where we are.  But we aren’t.  We just search for all that is wrong with our lives and never focus on all that’s right until it has already passed.

This week I want to challenge everyone to see what is good in their lives.  Look around and make a small list.  You don’t have to physically write one, just make mental notes.  Do that and watch how much your perspective on life changes.
