Enjoy the Now
I’m wired to achieve. It’s just in my nature. I want to grow, to learn, to accomplish new things, to tackle new challenges and to be better than I was the day before.
Most of the time, this is a good thing.
But oftentimes I find that I miss the moments around me…
…the memories to be shared with friends and with family
…the word of encouragement that someone needs to hear from me
…the pat on the back or the “job well done” that I need to give my staff
…the time to truly listen to my husband
Instead of enjoying “now”, I tend to focus on what is yet to come. I breeze by the moments in anticipation of the future.
And as a result, I lose.
…the memories of moments with the people I love the most
…the opportunity to speak into someone’s life at just the right time
…the chance to see a co-worker re-energized and refreshed
…a sacred moment with the love of my life
I don’t want to lose. I want to enjoy the “Now”!
How about you? What moments are you missing?
