As humans, we are meant to enjoy life. Getting the most out of our time here. We are put here to learn to love unconditionally, which cannot be accomplished if you are not enjoying everything life has to give. Below is a beautiful enjoy life quote that sums up what I’m saying.
A Wonderful Enjoy Life Quote
“Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep out alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no when you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here. Believe in kissing.”
― Eve Ensler
Advancement in technology has taken some of the enjoyment out of living. We become so comfortable; that we miss out on the small, ever-so-fleeting aspects the world has to offer. The more you have, the less you notice these little gems.
People with the least have a better chance to enjoy life as it was meant to be. My grandparents lived on a small farm in the country and didn’t have a lot. They didn’t have air conditioning; we enjoyed the summer breezes that came through the open windows of their house
Listen To The Wind
Days were filled with being outside, sitting under a shade tree with a good book in hand. Periodically, I would stop reading, put down the book, and enjoy listening to the sounds of the wind rustling through the trees.
When it started to rain, we didn’t immediately run inside. We soaked it up, enjoying the coolness of each raindrop as it ran down our faces. The rain brought life and was always welcome. Once the sun came back out, we enjoyed the warmth of its rays. Soon, we were dry again.
When winter came, I always enjoyed the sting of the cold on my cheeks when I ventured outdoors we played in the snow until our feet were numb; only then going indoors and propping up our feet by the fire. The smell and sounds of wood burning are something I’ll never forget. A winter’s night is special with its cool, crisp air. The sky is so clear you can see every star and planet.
Whatever day or season it is, I hope that you will turn off the weather, open the door and spend time outdoors. Focus on the sights, sounds, and smells. See how truly green the tree leaves are and how blue the sky is. Enjoy life and live it to its fullest. Open your heart to find the peace and joy that comes from experiencing the gifts of our planet.
