We hear people comparing themselves with others & telling ' That's life.' We compare ourselves with them and whine.
"Look how messed up we're and how lucky they are."
Before we jump unto this, we need remember: 'Everything comes for a price.' There's an article on this site with title 'In life, every gain has a loss, every loss has a gain.' we would request you to go read through it, to tackle this.
"Comparing yourself self with others is a humiliation, torture to your soul and biggest humiliation to God's wonderful creativity."
Actually, Life is present in every moment of our lifetime. We do quite a lot of mundane activities in everyday life.
If we mindfully do each activity with at most dedication & enjoy them, that means we are enjoying 'Life'.
The goal of every one's life should be to embrace, live & enjoy each moment mindfully. In support of this we hear; Carpe Diem! by Roman Poet Horace in his book Odes in 23 BC.
"Carpe diem is part of Horace’s injunction “carpe diem quam minimum credula postero,”
Translation: Pluck the day, trusting as little as possible in the next one.
The actual meaning of Horace's injunction as 'Seize the day' or 'get the most of this moment.
Don't you see life is so simple if we take care of one moment at a time, live one moment at a time, live each day at a time. Don't you see life is so joyous! Instead, we hold on to the misery of past, carry it on our backs. We overthink and become anxious about future.
We hamper this day! Eventually we hamper our future. We fail to take care of moments & we fail in achieving goals.
"You need to stop blackmailing your present unto ruining a beautiful future." Your future is now!"
We need to remember one thing always-
Only time you have is now! Only day you have is today!
If you take care of each 'now' moment, you are shaping your destiny. Your future is determined by what you are going to do now!
"It's in the moments of decision, your destiny is shaped." - Tony Robbins, Awaken the giant within you.
So, let's embrace, enjoy & mindfully live each moment of life. Let's shape our destiny and live the life of abundance, devoid of stress and embarrassment. Hope this inspires you!!
