Moments, our lives are full of them and yet, we miss so many of the ones that change our lives and lead us each to a life of joy and a life that is ideal for each of us.
Friends, none of us need the perfect conditions to enable us to enjoy our life. Life does not have to be perfect. That is the beauty of life, it’s not perfect and that, to me makes it that much more beautiful and special.
Each day, as I have said many times, we have choices to make and this is one of those choices, the choice to enjoy our lives. There is no need to wait until the best moment to see the beauty in our lives or to even smile and be happy. Any moment works just as well as the best moment, so why not pick this moment?
Whatever you have going on, whatever you are doing, look up and choose to smile and to enjoy where you are at and enjoy the moment and enjoy your life. Look at your spouse, your children or even your pets. Do you see it? The beauty in what you have and that is around you ever day, if you see it, is so very endowing.
We can choose to complain about many things in our lives and we can choose to feel sorry for ourselves or…we can choose to take in the wonder that is around each of us each day! No matter what is going on in your lives, no matter how bad it may seem, joy is there, waiting for you to notice it in the beauty of your life. When you notice it, you tap into so much opportunity and so much that can improve your lives.
Friends, believe me when I tell you that I know that there are a boatload of problems that we each have that need to be resolved. Some of them require a change in perspective and some may require a miracle from God. There are wrongs that must be made right and many obstacles that we must each overcome. However, with joy, we can move through these moments without bitterness and we will know that when we come to the end of our journeys, we conquered all and we did so with love and with joy in our hearts.
If you made it down to this portion of my post, then I will assume that you need more joy in your life. Hell, we all do. At this very moment, I challenge each of you to choose to enjoy this very second, this very moment, with all that you are, authentically and sincerely.
Here is a little secret, out of all my life, the teachings of my mother and father and the whole of my family hold nothing to what my wife, Gwen Poole Lanier, has taught me. Everything that I write has her soul within it. For this, I am more grateful and most men on this earth that I was able to not only find a great teacher but my best friend and my wife, all in one beautiful package!
Now, tomorrow when you awake, go forth into the days of you lives and live joy and learn to put the power of joy in every thought, in every action and in every breath of your lives. It will not just benefit you but all of those to whom you are connected to and those to whom you are yet to meet.
May tomorrow be your best and most joyous day as each day thereafter! Ω∞†
