Living Each Day

It isn’t always easy living each day to the fullest especially when life throws you some unexpected troubles or sorrows.  However, when life becomes uncertain, it can be the best time to breathe deeply and take life one minute, one hour or one day at a time.

Self talk comes in handy when I am feeling uneasy. I focus, take a deep breath and say to myself, I can get through this next ten minutes if I just remain calm and remind myself that I am strong . If I focus on just getting through the day it helps. Just for Today I can … makes life more manageable for me.

Just for Today I will look for the moments to be grateful knowing that living each day with gratitude helps me to be the kind of person that I wish to be. I am grateful I got on an airplane today , even though I was nervous about doing so. I focused on my breathing and other things so that time would fly by and it did. I arrived safely at my destination knowing that I would be in my little piece of heaven Out on The Mira.

What are your best tips for living each day fully?

One thought on “Living Each Day

  1. A couple of things that keep me going:

    *Start each day by doing something I really want to accomplish–something simple, something quickly achievable, e.g., responding to an unanswered email, reading something I’ve been meaning to read, or finishing an almost-complete piece of writing that is begging to be completed

    *Acting as if I have all the time of the world and, at that same time, acting as if I may have very little time left–really helps me focus on what I want to do and what can wait to be done
