Every moment of every day is what makes up your life. Your life is not going to happen someday in the future. It’s happening right now. So, the present is what deserves your attention—the boring, the frustrating, and the challenging, right alongside the exciting and the loving. Today is made of your memories. If you only notice and focus on what you don’t like about your life, you’re creating some pretty unhappy memories to look back on.
The things that you “can’t wait” to get out of are likely the things that could use a new perspective. One day, you might not be in this rut, this horrible job, this heartbreak, this challenging relationship, this tough financial situation, or these health ailments.
Even if you hate what’s going on in one part of your life, you have the choice to make the most of every one of these situations. Your life is ticking away. There’s always tomorrow, you think—but how do you know for sure? Special moments are happening right now, today. Find them amidst the hardships, or you’ll lose them forever.
