Too often we are looking to make it "big," achieve that "big" thing, make the "big" bucks, get the "bigger" house….achieving, striving, clawing our way to greatness. We get lost and loose ourselves in the process.
We forget that the GREAT life is the life we have, right here, right now. The great life is the one you LIVE, not the one you chase after. Greatness is here. Greatness is today. Greatness is found in the simple, day-in-day-out living.
Too often I think we want a "big" job and "important" title -- something that has meaning and significance. We strive for the "big" promotion that we think will make us happy forgetting that the best life is the one we LIVE. Just think about all the people you know divorced? Many think they'll be happy with another spouse and different kids only to find out their problems follow them wherever they go regardless of who they are married to.
Too many people are searching for this pie in the sky, perfect job, house, kids, family and they are not living the Life they have. Greatness is found in the simple, day-to-day Life. After all, Life is made up of one day at a time.
As we enter the tail end of this week make it a point to ENJOY what you're doing. Consciously decide to bloom wherever you are. It doesn't mean you have to stay there for the rest of your life, but you might as well BLOOM while you're there. Nobody likes a wilting flower! BLOOM!
Change your attitude.
Change your perspective.
Start living TODAY!
