Sometimes, we tend to forget to enjoy the moment. We get caught up in our busy schedules, in the pettiness of our everyday experiences, that we simply forget to appreciate the blessings and the little things that matter. Our lives are like a jumbled mess with a bit of everything thrown in. When was the last time you actually paused and smelled the flowers? When was the last time you looked in the mirror and smiled because you liked what you saw? When was the last time you just sat still and thanked God you are still alive? When was the last time you stepped outside, looked at the sky, and appreciated the beauty of your surroundings?

Instead of being busy all the time, or being worried all the time, let’s take a minute everyday, to be grateful. Even if it’s just a minute, a few seconds maybe, to enjoy something, no matter how small it is. Forget the weighing scales for a while and devote one day just eating all your favorite foods. Take off a day from work and go to that place you’ve been dying to go to for years! Take an hour break and meditate. Or maybe spare a few minutes to walk out in your garden or to the park, and just enjoy being alive!
