Mindful Living …

If you knew you had days to live, would you have regrets? Would the memories of the life that flashes before you include only the big events? Or would the little things end up being the most important?
Personally, I know when I think about my happiest moments and memories they include the normal days, watching my boys play, having some time with my husband, family days with the people I love most … I have experienced massive highs and heart-breaking lows in my life, but when I think of being truly happy it’s the days in between that I remember.
We are all guilty of not living in the moment, I know I certainly am. Living for the weekend, living for holidays … thinking life will begin when you have lost a few stone, when you’ve grown your hair, when you move house, when you make more money … living like this we miss our life, life is still moving along while we are waiting for it to start. Living in the past is depression, living in the future is anxiety, living in the present is the only place we are actually alive, it’s the only time we can control and enjoy. Living is about the little things, the everyday routine, finding beauty in every day.
Time is ticking by and we only have one life, when its gone, its gone. Every minute of everyday we will never get back, living in the moment is so important to your life, for your mental health and it’s the memories we make daily that we will remember and miss, so make them good ones. Don’t wait for life to start, its started and its flying by … sit back and appreciate all you have and everyone you love … and don’t worry about the ones that don’t love you, because in the end they will not matter, the hard times will not matter.
If you are going to have regrets don’t make it that you missed your life, waiting for it to start or watching someone else’s and wishing you had more … your life is what you make it, so make it amazing every day.
Those little hugs, the worlds I love you, the laughs, that is what you will remember, you don’t have to be any more than you are.
Let’s live for today, because we are lucky to have it.
Thank you for reading
