We tend to make things complicated when life is very simple.
This day doesn’t have to be your birthday to make a wish. I want you to close your eyes right now and purposely think of something you want. To test this process, let’s start with something simple. I simply asked for a connection with a dear friend who I have known for many years. Now let go of the thought and forget about it. What I mean is don’t dwell on it or keep asking for it or wondering whether or not it’s going to come true. To speed up the process, stay positive and believe with all your heart that it will happen with absolutely no doubt. You can even act like it has happened or you’ve received it already and be very thankful. Continue with your normal, daily activities, but stay fully focused in the present moment throughout the days ahead. I am so excited for us right now, because this is part of what life is all about. Stay tuned my friends. I am wishing you a joy-filled life!
We have such busy schedules that sometimes prevent us from enjoying the simple things in life. We get pulled in many different directions that our lives become chaotic. We rush around in a frenzy taking kids to school or to their activities, going to work, grocery shopping, working out, checking emails, etc. It is no wonder we have so much stress in our lives. We need to learn to slow down or stop and be present. We can very easily eliminate some things to allow time for unwinding and relaxation. Life goes by quick enough. Be like a child and appreciate the small pleasures in life. Here is Liam taking time to smell the flowers.
Can you see the joy on this little guy’s face? He was so excited to be at the pumpkin patch and that he got to pick his own pumpkin. It’s moments like these that mean the most in life. Do we still get excited about the simple things? When did we lose that joy? Bring back the joy in your life. Slow down, take notice, and appreciate all of God’s miracles.
