For some reason this quote really stuck out to me when I first saw it. So much so that I printed it out and have it hanging right next to my monitor at work. I read it many times a day in fact. Of course, I love my life. I AM enjoying my life. But there are days- or maybe even just hours- when I am over it. Whether it’s a tough day at work, or the stress of homework, or constantly cleaning up messes- I forget that the whole point of life is to ENJOY it!
I don’t know about you, but when I see a good quote that really speaks to me, I literally just sit in the moment and really think about what it means. To me, these are not just words. Were we born just so we could “get thru” the day? Are we here so we can manage, get by, or just deal with life? Absolutely not! Inevitably, there will be hard times for all of us. And in those times we may just need try to just get by. But life as a whole should be LIVED and ENJOYED.
Everyone has different ways of enjoying life. And I think when you realize that you’re just enduring it, then it’s time to make a change. Why would we want to stick with something we’re not enjoying? One reason is fear. You may remember my blog post about my fear of starting a blog. I was nervous about what people would think and could I actually do it. Was I going to be able to get anyone to follow me or would this just be a big failure. I can honestly say, I love blogging. It has lit a spark in me and I am really enjoying it. I hope that you are enjoying it too!
