Live the Moment; Enjoy Life

Updated on July 9, 2013

LIFE can seem to be very fast and busy at times. With the heavy work schedules, projects that need to be accomplished, problems needing solutions and dreams that have to be pursued, we often forget to live and enjoy the moment. With the myriad of things going on in our lives, we often look into the future and dwell much on the past and in the process we fail to realize that we are no longer living in the present.

We are only “youngest” at this time and tomorrow we will be older by a day. Thus, it is now that we need to conquer the world and not later. It is now that we need to get up, go and do it. No single second must be wasted as we pursue our everyday lives. Procrastination is nothing but a disease making us not do things we ought to do. Each second that passes in our lives is an amount of time that is either enjoyed or wasted. Before its too late, we have to comprehend the real value of time and not waste it on working in jobs we hate or in relationships we are not happy at all.

Time is a very precious commodity and despite the advancement of technology, a time machine has never been invented. In fact, such a device that would turn back the hands of time may never be invented at all because time once lost can never be recovered. Once time has passed, it is gone forever.

“Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't own it, but you can use it. You can't keep it, but you can spend it. Once you've lost it you can never get it back.” 
(Harvey MacKay)

Time can never be saved in a bottle. We have to spend time only on significant matters. We have to stop wasting time on relationships that can never be fixed and stop worrying on things we can no longer solve.

"There is never enough time to do everything, but there is always enough time to do the most important thing." 
(Brian Tracy)

With all the hustle and bustle of life, time seems to move fast and days move on unnoticed. It was just Christmas and after all you knew it, its Christmas time again. In life, we often forget to live and enjoy the moment we are in. We often worry about the future making us forget to enjoy the present. When time has passed, we begin to realize that we should have enjoyed that moment. Have you recalled the time when you were in high school and all you think about is getting into college? And then you recognize that you have not fully enjoyed high school because you have wasted your time worrying about college.

Sometimes with all the difficulties in life, we forget to just stop and appreciate those simple things life has to offer. When we are always thinking of the variety of issues that need to be solved in the day, we often get lost in the multitude of problems totally forgetting about those simple joys life has to offer.

Just look around and you can see simple things that are a joy to behold such as those flowers along the way merely ignored by passers by. Take time to look at those flowers with their variety of colors including the butterflies that fly around them in complete appreciation of the flowers’ splendor and see life in a much happier perspective. Whatever advancement technology has introduced, nothing can re-create the beauty of those flowers.

Sometimes when we think of those things that we wish we had, we forget that there are much more important things we already have. Try to be thankful of the persons around you. You are considered very lucky to have a sister or parents by those who have none. When you wake up in the morning, try to appreciate the beauty of the morning sun that gives hope as it rises between the clouds. When going home from work, try to appreciate the sunset where the kaleidoscope of colors gives that very sentimental feeling no movie can ever replicate.

By just stopping by and looking at those flowers, we can live the moment and appreciate life. Consider those flowers as a reminder on how important time is and how much more important it is to enjoy the moment. It is never too late to realize that the time we have now may be the only time we have left to enjoy life.

      Beauty words, time is so precious and it needs to spent enjoying the moment. At the same time it would be wise to think about the future, but not so much that you miss out on the beauty of life.
