Are You Enjoying Life’s Little Moments?

It is so easy to fall into the busy schedule of the world and become weighed down with responsibilities that take up so much of our time. There are things that we need to do like school, work, taking care of our families, and serving others. But then we have things that we want to do like hobbies, traveling, and more. How do we balance so much and still enjoy life? It’s simple – we slow down. Enjoy the moments for what they are. Put down the cameras and social media, put away the work for a moment, and just look at what is in front of you.

The Lord sent us here to earth to enjoy this world (see 2 Nephi 2:25). He has given us families and friends to build and cultivate relationships, and we can go out and experience the beauty of the earth like waterfalls, sunsets, and more. God has given us pain and sorrow so that we can embrace joy and peace more fully. All of these wonderful moments can be swallowed up if we let time get away from us.

This video titled “Moments That Matter Most” is one of my favorites and has really helped me as I have strived to enjoy the little moments that life has to offer. Think back to when you were a child and everything was adventure. There was no ending to time, and you felt like you could experience everything. We need to keep some of that same spirit alive within us. There is a reason why the Lord has repeatedly told us that we need to become as little children. Children are able to see what matters most without really trying! Let us become like children and enjoy the little moments in order to see the big picture.

 

It doesn’t take much for children to have fun. All they need is their family, friends, and the world, and they have all of the ingredients for an adventure. Here are some things you can do to get in touch with your inner child and see the world through her eyes.

  • Put away technology. Although phones, computers, and tablets are a great blessing in our day-to-day lives, they can become a distraction with always checking email, posting on social media, and messaging others. The more we unplug with the world, the more we are able to connect to those around us.
  • Throw away the to-do list for a night. Things like cleaning the dishes, going to the grocery store, and sewing a button on a shirt are good things to do for yourself and your family, but occasionally it is okay to throw the list away and focus on other things like creating a messy painting with your kids or sitting on a couch and talking for hours with a good friend. Don’t let your to-do list become a leash that keeps you from enjoy every moment that life has to offer.
  • Go on a quiet walk. Walks were my saving grace during a tough time in my life. I talked to a church leader about how tired and stressed I was, and he recommended that in the mornings for exercise I should just go on a walk. That was my time when I didn’t have to worry about anything. I was just able to go out and take in God’s creations. Walks are the perfect way to rebalance your life and help you focus on the moments that matter most.
