Enjoy The " Now"

Many of us experience on our journey through life is the inability to allow ourselves to be happy or satisfied in the "now." For example, when we're in grade school, we can hardly wait until we're in junior high school. Then we're in junior high and can't wait until we're in high school. In our early teens, we can hardly wait to be 16 so we can drive a car. Then we're waiting to graduate from high school, to leave home, then get married, etc. We seldom, if ever, are able to be satisfied and content enjoying the here and now. We don't seem to know how to stop along the way and smell the roses.And in some cultures we can't enjoy, or we think we're not supposed to enjoy life until we are perfect. Why is it that so many people think that we can't enjoy life to it's fullest until we have arrived at our destination.

If we can realize and recognize that the growth process is something to be savored and relished along the way- that enjoying the challenges of the now and seeing the positive aspects they bring to our life as we experience them- our existence can be so much more rewarding. Our Be-ing is developing and it is necessary to have these kinds of experiences in order to accomplish our growth.
