If you’re not enjoying life,

you’re doing it wrong, one of my regular customers at McDonald’s used to say. He’d say this when I was taking orders, getting ready to mop the floor, or just about any time he visited the store. He’d even sing it, as he was walking in, to anyone who was willing to listen.

Truth be told there’s nothing fun about mopping a floor. There’s nothing fun about turbulent times either. 

But it makes me wonder though just how much power we individually have to enjoy life every moment. It comes down to choice. Do you choose something that will make you more miserable or something that will help you keep your peace? 

Enjoying life isn’t meant to be that difficult. We sometimes forget to be creative in the way we take things in. We forget that we have the choice to see the bright side of things.

  • Spend your time doing the things that will bring you a sense of fulfillment instead of dread.
  • It’s as simple as thinking back about your day’s or week’s accomplishments.

How can you live your life in such a way that you completely enjoy it almost always. In such a way that you find beauty or wisdom or love or laughter even during turbulent times? 

In such a way that even during turbulent times, you find the will to keep going for your dreams, that you find appreciation for what matters most to you, that you find all of the reasons for why even then, life is still good.
