Don’t forget to soak in the joy of living… even if you’re not. Living that is.
Undead and Unencumbered
I’ve been undead a long time – long enough I don’t have any real idea how long. Regardless, I do know what some parts of living are like. Sometimes life has pockets that are sad and lonely and they just seem to drag on. Imagine that while being immortal!
Yet there are always pockets of joy too. We have to look for them. We have to embrace the joy of living, even if we’re not. Again… living… even if we’re not living.
If you want to experience a bit more joy in your life, let me share with you three ways you can do it.
The Joy of Living – Thrice
Sometimes enjoying life is all about the importance of simplicity and focusing on what really matters. Although there are advantages and disadvantages of a daily routine, if we get stuck in a rut, all we’re experiencing is the disadvantages.
Instead, here are three simple ways you can experience the joy of living:
- Stop: Just step away, set a timer for 3 minutes and just enjoy where you are.
- Make Plans: Have something you really enjoy doing? Make plans to do it today.
- Connect: Meet up with someone you enjoy spending time with.
This doesn’t have to be single choice vs multiple choice. You can do them all or one at a time. After all, It doesn’t take much to experience the benefits of the joy of living, but it does take action. Don’t waste your day wondering what could be when you could be experiencing what is.
It can be as simple as stepping away or as big as the excitement of an upcoming vacation. Whatever it is, take the time to enjoy the wonderful things that life has to offer. There’s so much to experience. What are you waiting for?
