It’s a simple question and one we’ve all heard countless times: If you were to die tomorrow, how would you spend today? Would you go happy? Would you feel fulfilled?
Truly take a minute to think about this, because right now, within this exact moment you have the power to change anything, and I mean ANYTHING, going on in your life. Your ultimate goal is to be happy right? Put the little details aside, or better yet, put them together and what do they all lead to? Happiness.
My message for today is to stop putting off happiness. It isn’t something that magically comes about when you’re caught up or all the work is done. It’s not an unattainable state only found when the kids are asleep and the stars align. It’s finding the joy in each task and in every moment. If you continue to seek this end result, you’re going to be searching indefinitely.
I woke up this morning to read the news of Cory Monteith’s passing. Although I didn’t know the man personally, I’ve connected to his characters and talent, as so many other fans have. It’s always sad to hear news of this kind, but it’s also a little dose of reality, a reminder that no one is invincible.
Maybe it’s because he was so young. Maybe it’s because it was unexpected. Maybe it’s because I’ve had some recent health issues and concerned with changing my lifestyle. Or probably some combination formula of the three. But I am someone who believes that every detail, no matter how minute or extravagant, is meant to impact our lives. Everyone is struggling in their own, unknown ways, but our time here is limited and we should be choosing happiness everyday, in each moment. If you don’t choose it NOW, you may not have the chance.
As anyone who reads my blog knows, music is a commanding force in my life, so I will leave everyone with some positive Sunday Morning vibes, compliments of Stereofox senior writer, Alex. I love when music sounds like hope, and that’s exactly the way this feels. Make it a legendary Sunday.
