One of my life lessons… when it comes down to it, it is not the years or the days that we ultimately remember. It is the moments. It is the special time shared with people who add value to our lives. It is our dreams and accomplishments fulfilled. It is the laughter and the tears. It is our alone time to reflect and appreciate what we have, and the simple pleasures that make living great. It is the journey. Amidst today’s deadlines and commitments, I’m going to take special care to cherish the moments that make life great. – Lisa Desatik
What is one of your life lessons? What is the one thing you have learned in your life that you wish you could pass on to future generations?
This thought has been on my mind for the past two days:
If I could teach one thing to future generations of the human race, what would it be?
The first thing that popped into my mind was to live a simple life.
What do I mean?
I mean to cut out what is causing you stress and anxiety and to cherish each moment. What matters in life is not money, houses, cars, prestige or influence. Life is about the simple things: happiness, kindness, charity and contentment.
Our lives are overflowing with places to be and commitments. No one seems to be able to relax anymore. It's go, go, go. Even on vacation or days off, the schedule is filled with stuff to do. Even our kids are scheduled down to the last minute.
How can you get out from under the stress and pressure?
Commit to yourself and to your loved ones to cut back and relish in the moment. Yesterday I talked about how important it is to breathe. Today, it's important to savor every moment. Each moment is precious and once over, you cannot get it back.
Amidst today's deadlines and commitments, I'm going to take special care to cherish the moments that make life great.
