How much time do you spend daydreaming of the future? How many times do you catch yourself wishing you were somewhere else, or wishing for time to just speed up so you can skip whatever it is you are currently doing.
It happens to all of us, we are always looking for more experiences, more excitement in our days, but forget to live and experience what we are currently doing.
Traditional media and social media sites don’t make this easier on us either. We are getting used to checking Facebook and Instagram on a constant basis where we are bombarded with people having awesome times at parties, traveling to cool places or doing unique things, then we are left thinking that whatever we are currently doing must suck.
The problem is no one lives a life that is 100% excitement, yet whenever we are bored at our jobs we want to scape and wish we would be doing something else instead. Oftentimes we are never happy with our current situation always wishing to be doing something else or being somewhere new, it’s getting so bad that even on vacation we often want to be back home, or be somewhere else. If we train our brain to think this way we will never be happy.
What we have to do is make sure we are living one day at a time. Do not worry about tomorrow, think only about what is in front of you this very moment, try to enjoy it as much as you can. Only by doing this you will ensure that you will not miss any moment of your life.
We all should have big dreams and desires of things we want to accomplish in life, but we can’t live our lives wishing of that day and forgetting our present time.
A good way to find constant joy in your life is to be grateful for what you have in front of you everyday. Be happy of what you are doing today, even if it’s not what as “cool” as you wish it to be. Later on in life you will be glad you enjoyed every minute of your life.
