Thoughts on Enjoying Today

In Creating Happiness, Recent Posts by Barbara Jacoby

I was trying to figure out what I wanted to write about today and couldn’t think of a thing. The day has been pretty quiet with just watching some TV and working on various facets of my website and social media. So all in all, it just seemed to be another nice and relaxing time.

“How fortunate I am for all that I have and for the opportunity to make a wonderful day for myself today! Barbara Jacoby

Then as I started to assess the situation, I realized that it was a whole lot more than that. Although things have been going pretty well, I have no idea what tomorrow will bring. My thoughts went to things that are suppose to save our economy and to the hard working people who are trying to keep their personal lives and businesses afloat.

As I see it, it may only be a matter of time until the next greedy person creates a situation to line his or her pockets. But as a result of the recent economic situation, I do think that a lot of individuals are a whole lot wiser about what is going on. And then I listen to the press output and become agitated all over again as we are fed the same old information that attacks others rather than trying to help us with real information on the issues But I do understand that ultimately, what I do and how I live is my own choice and that I cannot depend upon anyone else to help me.

I decided to reassess my day today and found that I am so grateful for all that I have been given. I have food on my table and a roof over my head to protect me and I know that as long as I continue in gratitude for all that the good Lord has given to me always, I am so fortunate beyond any words that I could ever share here.

I guess my lesson for the day is that I am not promised tomorrow and that I need to appreciate all of the wonderful opportunities that I have today. I also am so fortunate to be able to share laughter and love with my family and friends. I do have many wonderful things that I am anticipating to happen in the immediate future and all and all, this has been a pretty special day. And I still have another weekend day to enjoy tomorrow. How fortunate I am for all that I have and for the opportunity to make a wonderful day for myself today! And hopefully I will have the chance to do the same thing tomorrow and for many more days to come.
