Begin today to enjoy every moment of your day. Make a commitment to yourself right now, this very moment that you are going to enjoy your day. By beginning to enjoy your days, you will expand to enjoying your life. If you say “I will enjoy my life when I lose weight”, “I will enjoy my life when I get a new job, mate, or when all the circumstance or situations in my life change”. This type of thinking, I will be happy when…, robs you of your joy today. You may be in the process of change. Little by little, step-by-step, you are changing every day and reaching your goals. Enjoy the journey!
You cannot enjoy your day if you do not enjoy yourself. Say to yourself, “I am not where I need to be, but I am not where I used to be and thank God I am on my way!” Whatever your day brings, enjoy it. Commit to yourself, “I will not allow anything to steal my joy today”. Set a time (today!) to begin enjoying every day. Don’t wait another minute. Live each day as if it were your last!
Thoughts of tomorrow will get in the way of enjoying your day. Choosing to spend today trying to figure out tomorrow causes anxious feelings. Now of course you can plan for the future, however when you feel yourself reacting or become attached to the future, re-orient yourself to today. You will never have today again and tomorrow is not for us to see. You will reach your goals one day at a time. You will have all that you need to make it through each day and if you are blessed with tomorrow your resources will be replenished.
Be aware of your self-talk throughout the day. Commit to yourself to eliminate negative statements such as “I hate my job, grocery shopping, traffic, etc.” Enjoy the journey. Take time to begin to enjoy the little things in life and appreciate that you are able to go to the grocery store, that you have a job, and that you have a car to drive in traffic. Relax and enjoy. We get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of life that we do not stop, relax and enjoy.
