Enjoy Your Life ... All of it!

It's not a new message, but as far as we know, we only get one “go around” in this human form.

So it would make sense to make the most of it!

What does that mean for you?

Let me tell you what it has come to mean for me.

I will also point out that this attitude did not come easily to me … I learned it, and so can anyone.

I enjoy ALL aspects of my life. That’s it … that’s my first secret!

Like everyone there are challenges and disappointments, I may get frustrated and I may even get mad sometimes … but when I look at the big picture I love my life.

I am responsible for my own destiny … that is my second secret.

If something is not right in my world I can fix it in a couple of different ways.

I can change the situation OR I can change how I view that situation.

What my experience tells me is that almost always changing my attitude is the right answer.

I am the product of ALL my experiences … and I like who I am.

Not all of my experiences have been pleasant.

I have not arrived where I am in a direct line, but the end result is pretty cool as far as I am concerned.

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”

Maya Angelou

Some advice to REALLY enjoy your life:

  • Give more than you take … you will hear this from me a lot. I won’t even try to explain it.

  • Don’t wish away your days, even your hours … be in the moment and do your best, whatever you are doing.

  • ALWAYS be empathetic … look at both sides of every situation and give “the other person” the benefit of the doubt.

It all boils down to your ATTITUDE.

Is your attitude good … or is it getting in the way of your happiness?

Have a GREAT day … I know I will.

I write these articles with the intent of sharing MY experience and knowledge gained during MY life journey. From the 16 year old joining the Royal Navy, through many incarnations, to the grey haired guy who built a business. If you find a nugget here, then I am happy. If the message offends you then I apologise, that was never my intent. I know and recognize there are many people and groups who have a far bigger challenge than I have had and I only wish you well.
