Appreciating A Day On The Water
It's funny how we can get so accustomed to things we are used to and, as a result, sometimes forget how lucky we truly are. But it is up to each of us to be mindful of what we already have instead of only chasing after more.
For me, I have been boating for about thirty years now and even though I am used to it, I still can't help but appreciate and marvel at the experience. Yesterday was one of those days. Perfect weather, gorgeous views, and peace and tranquility within nature.
I too have many goals towards which I am working and I too sometimes get so obsessed with those goals that I forget to stop and smell the roses. But when days like yesterday come around it reminds me that while having big dreams and goals is necessary to our personal development and purpose fulfillment, so is being present and appreciating what's already right in front of us.
So think about it, what do you have to enjoy now that you have been glossing over? What mindful indulgence can you experience and appreciate right in this moment?
