~Robert White, American executive coach, and author of Living an Extraordinary Life
When you start from joy, whatever life brings you today will be lived from that place of being. As you continue on the path of life, you may get caught up in the notion that if you work hard today, you will be able to retire and enjoy life in the future. You may be walking through your days asleep, not experiencing the opportunities that present themselves. The reality is you are guaranteed only the moment that you are living right now. It serves no one when you postpone joy for another day. Simply live in joy minute by minute, not based in plans for what the future may hold. For example, when you take a shower in the morning, be in joy! When you eat your breakfast, lunch, and dinner, be in joy! When you drive home in rush hour traffic, turn on the music, or sit in silence, and be in joy! Life is going on all around you. It does not hurt to put on the rose-colored glasses and see the beauty, joy, and miracles all around. It really is your choice. Even on a rainy day, the weather is offering you an opportunity to enjoy the beauty of nature regardless of whether it may be a little difficult to get around. Make the choice to embrace the joy of being alive while you can!
Magical Key to Bliss: Enjoy being alive today!
