It’s Time to Take in the Good

sky

Our daily lives are filled with stress, anxiety and frustration.

So it seems.

It appears this way because those are the things we focus on the most.

In reality, there are as many moments filled with good feelings. It’s just that our fast paced lives don’t allow us to stop and think about those times.

Often, the positive vibes we experience are fleeting – a second in time.

Someone smiles at us, and we feel good. For a second or two.

We sit down with a cup of coffee and feel relaxed and content. For a minute, until something comes along and distracts us.

The challenge we face today is to grab these fleeting moments of “good” and allow them to sink in.

We can let them percolate and provide a more lasting impression.

The key is being mindful of life enhancing experiences.

Once mindful, we can lodge them into our memory.

This process, repeated day after day, will rewire our mind so that it’s looking out for those niceties that life still offers.

Over time, we’ll be far more appreciative of living. The stress will lessen. The good will overtake the bad.

Our mind is our universe.

What is going on inside there is our reality.

This coming year, I choose to recognize and savor even the tiniest moments of joy.

I will mark my days by seeking them out, nurturing them  – feeling and appreciating them.

Life is about to get a whole lot better.

I invite you to join me on that remarkable journey.

  1. Hi Cory,

    Happy New Year!

    Great post as usual!

    I wrote a LI post on a similar theme called “The Joy of Journaling” that you might like.
