Being Happy in the Here and Now

I recently came across an excellent quote by late radio personality, Earl Nightingale, that really resonated with me:

How do you feel after reading this? I know for me, it was a friendly reminder to enjoy the here and now. Honestly, I have always been a "seize the day" kind of person. With that being said, it can sometimes be easy to allow the stresses or daily tasks in our lives to push or pull us away from what really matters. When I saw this quote from Earl Nightingale, I knew it was one that I wanted to share with everyone.

It's definitely something to think about, and really just a simple reminder to focus on the now and what's right in front of us. Life goes by so fast–and although it's important to have a plan for the future, it's not all that we should be focusing on. Let's soak up the happiness that's all around us, by taking a moment to stop and cherish what we have right here in the present, enjoying our friends, family, and faith.

God Bless and Have a Beautiful Day!

Thanks for sharing this Kelly, it's definitely something I needed to hear. I've really been focused on trying to make my blog successful, and not succeeding yet, so I just keep focusing on making it better. That doesn't leave me much time to appreciate what I have now, like my family and my subbing job. So, thanks for this.

I totally hear you, Brenda! This happens to me from time to time. Blogging is so enjoyable (I love it!), but it can take up A LOT of time. My best advice is to keep doing what you are doing. You write interesting, quality posts, and that in my own personal opinion, is what makes your blog successful. I know some might disagree and say that it's thousands and thousands of followers, UMVs, and reach that make it successful. That seems to be the consensus (not so much in my opinion), and while it's definitely a great feeling when you grow your reader base and all your hard work gets noticed, it's definitely not everything. It's nice to also maintain a more personal connection with readers that sometimes gets lost if a blog gets too big. I hope this all makes sense....I guess in a nutshell, what I'm trying to say is keep up the good work, Brenda, your doing great! ;-)
