Living Life by the Importance of Today
There are three types of people in this world. There are those who are chronically negative,those who are in the large middle and a few who find a positive way of looking at the world. People with negative outlook are miserable while those in the middle have a mix of good and bad days depending on their moods. Those who have a positive outlook see their lives more vivid and beneficial than others..
We sometimes think that our life has something to do with the amount of money we make or the job we have. True enjoyment in life is based in how we perceive our lives and whether or not we are taking a positive inspiring approach to life or one in which the world is always moving to something worse. Our outlook will impact how we see the world around us and how we plan on living it.
I have met people who look back over their lives and almost never say I wish I made more money or that I pleased my bosses more. They do look back and wonder if they were genuine and truly enjoyed their lives. They wonder about their children and the people they once knew. They search for meaning in their lives and try and be fulfilled.
Sometimes they find it and sometimes they don't. Your chances of finding meaning become much more likely if you live each day as though it were your last. Do your work but also enjoy as much time as possible on those things that interest you. Make sure that you are expressing your true self to both yourself and the world around you.
It sounds hokey pokey but it is part of what makes contentment. We should balance our needs and make sure we are not neglecting any part of ourselves. Find good people to share your time, enjoy your families, get involved in those hobbies that interest you, and express yourself as much as possible. You might be surprised that you actually like work and being more creative and productive.
