One of the biggest distractions in life is the constant desire for something more. It’s easy to forget how special today is in the development of a better tomorrow. Wanting to make your future brighter doesn’t have to be a bad thing, but we can’t allow ourselves to forget how hard we worked to get where we are today.
If you are anything like me, you’ve spent the darker days of your life thus far praying for brighter pastures. We long for the days of less stress, promotions at work, making more money, driving nicer cars, building stronger relationships and so on. But how often do we take the time to appreciate the good parts of our life when they finally come around? Ambition doesn’t have to hinder our ability to be grateful for what we have. Good things come with time and everything has a process. What most people take for granted is the process is often the most valuable experience of all.
Take time to appreciate the what you have in front of you today. Enjoy time with family and friends. Make memories with what you have. Enjoy the experiences you face today, both good and bad, and enjoy the journey taking you where you want to go.
Life flies by. One day you’re praying for the opportunities to chase the goals and ambitions you’ve set for your life and before you know it, you’re living it. Just don’t forget to take the time to appreciate the journey along the way.
