Live In The Moment
Have we been focusing on the wrong things?
I believe that whatever the current situation, we can choose to Be Happy, or Not to Be Happy

Don’t see the work week as punishment, as something to get through
Time away from the family can be a good thing!
Don’t let a negative mindset steal your life from you
See the weekend as a reward for the hard work of the week
If you can’t quite get your head around the work week being the star, why not flip it on its head. Instead of dragging ourselves down with the obligation of the work week, why not see the weekend as the reward at the end of a long week! Get excited about it instead of longing for it. It’s a mindset shift.
Instead of pining for it, agonizing over it ‘only being Wednesday’ why not look at the weekend as a celebration! Plan for it like its Christmas! Schedule in your weekend get-togethers and book in your massages. Plan your picnics at the beach or your weekend away in the mountains. We all need something to look forward to, so treat your weekend like it’s a prize you get to enjoy after the hard slog!
My aim with this blog is to find a way to get yourself into a positive mindset for your day to day life, not to save the ‘Happy’ for weekend days only. Really, it’s all about finding gratitude for our lives just as they are. Gratitude will turn your frown upside down. Plus, turning weekends into Christmas sounds like a good idea to me!!
Remember that this moment right now is all that you have, so go on and Live in The Moment!
Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery and today is a gift, that is why it is called the present – Eleanor Roosevelt

Totally love the quote at the end. Yes we need to be able to learn to live fully, as t work or outside work, simply in whatever we do. Thanks!
Life is too short, and too precious, not to enjoy every moment! Thanks for your comment Sonia!
This is an interesting perspective, I long left the regular work week years ago, now the work week and weekend melt together as I see fit since I work for myself. You will never work harder than you do for yourself, and you will never be more fulfilled either, it is a slippery slope to balance on but so worth it.
Working for yourself means you have the power to choose, which is wonderful! We do sometimes need to remind ourselves to find joy in the moment as well though, because you can become so driven that you don’t stop and put things into perspective. I agree with you, working for yourself is so worth it!
Work week section hit home! I always think about getting through the week but that’s the wrong mindset!
I’m glad it resonated with you! Every moment is precious, we just have to learn to find the gift it is offering us. Thanks for reading!
I truly believe in what you have written, I try to live my life this way, sometimes it’s hard, but we get to choose how we live our lives. I have recently shared this viewpoint as well, even if you only find one positive thing about the day, that’s all you need
Thanks for your comment Tanyss! The more we spread the message of being more present, the more people will begin to appreciate what they have!
I think the work week “shouldn’t” be a punishment whatsoever – but not everyone is fortunate to have a job or possibly a boss that makes that entirely possible. I’ve been in that situation and fortunate enough to be able to change it!
I think the main thing is to realize we have the power to either choose our mindset or choose our situation. If you find you are not happy in a situation you have it within your power to change that. Thanks for reading!
Love this! I wrote on a similar topic- yes it is sooo imp to live in the moment and enjoy the present. Thanks for all the tips, all are very effective and gives great way for anyone to change their mindset and look for happiness every single day!
Thanks Nishtha! Yes, we must keep looking for happiness in every day!
Great tips! I think mindset can be everything and challenge myself to cultivate having a positive one consistently. Thank you so much for sharing.
Thanks for reading, Yvonne! I think having a positive mindset needs to become a habit, a daily practice. There is no one moment when it all ‘clicks’, but rather constant reminders of our blessings that pull us back to a positive mindset. ☺
These were beautiful words as always, exactly what I needed to sit up to and read and take head of.
Thank you so much, I’m glad you enjoyed it! Every day is a new opportunity!
