E is for Enjoy Life

Each day is a present from my father
Sarah Young

Embrace it!

Enjoy it!

Experience each day whole-heartedly because we only have today. If you are doubting, you are living in yesterday. If you are anxious, you are living in tomorrow. Enter into today, and keep your mind focused on making the moments of time you will never have again when they are gone, good.


Instead of a life cluttered with anxiety
pray about everything and let God’s peace
guard your hearts and minds in Christ

A good elixir is to remember that despite our songs and dances, all the work, responsibilities, pressures, baggage, goal crunching, we still have today and can still enjoy life by simply appreciating the day God made and finding reasons to smile in it.


Express joy in it!


Make each day your masterpiece and empower yourself to make an effort to give your best while life is still happening. Especially since, worrying about tomorrow is somewhat of a conundrum considering that tomorrow is not promised and may not even come. Despite what we might have been through, being here today means that you survived it. Expressing gratitude for how much of a powerful individual you are, is more empowering than anything you could do. Celebrate your accomplishments. Pat yourself on your own back when you are able to complete tasks. Find a way to celebrate you everyday!
