Value the beauty of the moment


Today I am feeling quite... ummmm.... I'm not quite sure how to describe it. Reflective maybe? I woke up this morning and entered into a deep and long journey of thoughts, which got me thinking...

Sometimes we get so caught up dwelling and reminiscing on the past or dreaming about the future that we forget to enjoy the present moment. Take my case for example ... I'm on this (long, sometimes stressful but never without fun & excitement) journey to become a mega successful radio broadcaster. At times, I get so caught up planning for the future and jotting down notes on how I intend to take over the world (Pinky and the Brain stylee) that I forget to enjoy the journey I am currently on. I once heard someone say, 'When you reach the top, the only way is down.' Let that simmer for a second. I kind of agreed when I heard it., but then I thought, well you could just stay up and never ever come down lol! I digress... 

All I'm trying to say is, take a moment to enjoy now. The moment you have right here. After all, no one promised us tomorrow!

I found this quote which I loved... The author is unknown!
Life is only travelled once; today's moment becomes tomorrow's memory. Enjoy every moment, good or bad, because the GIFT of LIFE is LIFE itself.

And another... This one is by Lord Chesterfield
Know the true value of time; snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it. No idleness, no laziness, no procrastination: never put off till tomorrow what you can do to-day.

  1. Ohmygosh I don't think you understand how much I love this post! I've been really reflexive recently... thinking about my life, what I'm doing with it, where I plan to be in X amount of years etc... and then I forget everything that's going on around me... then I realised that the stuff I miss/memories I cherished are the ones I took for granted at the time...so thanks for the reminder my love, sometimes you need to hear it from someone else :-)
