Enjoy Life Now

Stop right this minute and, if you are one of the five people reading this, make a list- #1-#5. I want you to write down 5 things that are going right for you in your life- right now. Today. Write them down. You can think in a broad and/or narrow sense. I listed health as #1, but then I listed the fact that I finished swim practice tonight in 50 degree weather at #4. List 5 things, though.

Then, after you listed them, take a hard look at them. Ask yourself- how did you get these things right? Why are these things working in your life? Will you keep them up? Should you be more thankful for them? Take a step back and truly, truly understand that life is a one-day-at-a-time occurrance and tomorrow is not guaranteed for everyone. Stop complaining about the little things and truly recognize how valuable you are to yourself right now- in this moment.

A great quote that puts this into perspective that I thought I would share:

"Be Where You Are: Otherwise, You Will Miss Your Life"

Don't miss a second of it. Make each second count and don't regret anything you have or have not done.

Here's to 2008!
