Life is made up of little moments strung together similar to the lights we hang up in our gardens. Sometimes our life is bright and shining with happiness. Then difficult times roll in and it’s hard to see through the darkness we feel in our hearts.
When all is well it seems to go by fast, when things are tough it feels as though the days drag on. But, regardless of what we are going though, life is ticking away.
C.S. Lewis said, “Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes but when you look back everything is different.”
Life doesn’t wait for you, and someday you will look back and realize everything has changed.
Search for the moments of happiness even during difficult times. Make it a point to enjoy your life and to have loving relationships with those closest to you.
Live in gratitude for your blessings, and give thanks often. We pray when we are worried, but we should also pray our thanks every day.
Make meaningful connections, and don’t waste time with superficial relationships. Spend time with the right people.
Discover who you are so that someday you don’t look back, and regret not having lived the life you wanted. If you are not happy and not doing what you love, you will never feel fulfilled.
Learn to recognize that struggle is part of life and that the experiences you live through will give your strength. You are stronger than you think trust that there is a reason for the misfortunes you encounter.
Live with a positive attitude. Have faith and enjoy the journey.
