Living and Enjoying Each Day
Monday, January 13, 2014
During my prayer time this morning, I said that for today, I'm not was not going to complain about anything, that I was just going to enjoy today for what it is. I'm not going to be concerned about all the things I have going on, or the to do list that I never seem to get through. Sometimes I'm so focused on the near future that I'm not living today for today.
My office area is cold and everyday I complain about how cold I am. Today, I decided I am not going to complain, especially since I can't do anything about it. It's usually my first complaint when I have my Monday meetings with my manager, but not today. Today I just put on a jacket, wrapped a blanket around my legs and enjoyed the day.
The subject for today in my "Jesus Calling" devotional was about enjoying today. Timely. Then I read another article about living just for today, but also living life. There are some things that I've wanted to do, like escape weekends, that I don't do because of everyone else in my life that needs me. They can do without me for a couple of days - I'm going to be doing those escapes for me.
And there was yet a third article that pretty much reinforced the other two readings. Life should be a verb, not a now. It's something that I should fully participate in, not something that happens to me.
I haven't made any concrete resolutions this year, but I do know that I want to be better physically, mentally, financially, emotionally and spiritually. I could set goals for each of those so I can measure them, but I've just decided to live today and I'm sure to touch at least one of those areas for the better everyday.
Those are my thoughts and I'm sticking to them.
