You do not need much to have a great life. There is no need to travel, start a business, or do something out of the ordinary to experience life at its fullest. Those may be great things to do, but they are not necessary. In fact, you have everything you need now to live life to the fullest.
If you want to live life to the fullest, you need to do two things:
1. Appreciate everything that you have now
2. Live in the moment, the present, or the now
You are not truly living or appreciating your life if you focus your mind on the regrets of the past or the anticipations of the future. When you live in the past or future, you are missing out on what is happening now. So much is happening, you are just overlooking it. There are literally thousands of the things you should be happy for at this moment. Everything you have, from your health, the special people in your life, to the bed you sleep on and food you eat, and everything you are experiencing, from the breath you take, the silence you hear, to the sun that warms your body, was never promised to you. Nothing is promised, so love and appreciate every moment.
The reality is the present moment is all you really have. Occupy your mind on what is happening now. That’s all that is guaranteed. What happened in the past is not reality. It was reality at some point, but it is not now. What will happen in the future is not reality. It will be reality at some point, but it is not now.
Love where you are in life, no matter where you are. Take the time to love it, appreciate it, and give thanks for it. This moment will never happen again.
