Stop waiting for Friday, for summer, for someone to fall in love with you, for life.
Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for it and make the most of the moment you are in now.
Weekends are our favorite. We love waking up slowly, eating breakfast in bed or at a cute café. Spending time doing everything we want or nothing at all. It makes us feel alive, makes us happy. If we could have that weekend feeling everyday, we’d take it in a heartbeat. Of course, you already know that from reading our blog! Nevertheless, today’s quote really hit home for us.
Busy busy busy
Weekdays are often filled with work, to do lists and appointments. We’re busy busy busy from the moment we wake up until the moment we get home. And even with our slow rituals and mindful work breaks implemented in our lives, we’re busy nonetheless. When I get home from a day of work all I want is to take off my make-up, put on an oversized sweater and curl up on the couch with a cup of tea. I’ve done this so many times, it has been my routine for so long. And I have to be honest, most times I love it. Sometimes that’s all I want to do. That’s all my body and mind need.
And yet, other times, that’s not it at all. Staying home, hanging around, makes my thoughts go round in circles, makes me worry about tomorrow’s to do list, about life. I hate the feeling of counting down the hours until Friday, until the weekend, until summer. Life is so much more than work, eating, sleeping. Than waiting for the occasional great moment. We want great moments, great days, everyday! Right? So that’s why this quote is so important to us. We try to decide everyday that we’re not waiting for Friday, the weekend, summer, something great to happen. We’re not letting our happiness depend on these days, these rare moments. And do you know what’s amazing? This change of thought, this mindset, it really makes a difference. It affects your mood, your activities, your sense of happiness.
Enjoy the life you’re living right now
So how do we make this happen? Making the most of the life you’re living right now is more about your mindset than about doing it all. You don’t have to do it all. It’s all about enjoying and being grateful for every moment you’re experiencing. Appreciating the phase of life you’re in right now. And sometimes that’s hard. Sometimes life sucks, is difficult or sad. But, your mind is strong, your attitude defines it all. It’s about creating that Sunday feeling everyday, making an effort to make every moment worthwhile. So, stop waiting for happiness to come, start creating it, start living it right now.
