Of course life doesn’t always offer just good things for us to love doing but living in the moment will allow us to embrace every opportunity we have, to appreciate and enjoy all that we can.
For me the most joyous time was the birth of babies into the family, for me that is the ultimate happiness.
Loving life can be found everyday, seeing the sun come up or go down, the wonders of nature, the growth in all living things, in enjoying our favourite pastimes. Travel , Sport, Socialising, spending time with the people we love.
Taking time to appreciate the natural and more simple joys in life, I believe keeps me in a sense of balance and prepares me for the difficult times that are often just around the corner.
Over the years we have seen the places in the world become much easier to access, either by travel or via the internet, the many platforms of social media that have become a necessary part of our daily lives.
So how much of this is impacting on the ability to see what life has to offer? where is our own personal space? when did we last take time to question the balance of our own lifestyle?.
What will the real memories be as we grow older?, it won’t be what we viewed on social media but the experience we see with our own eyes.
