Enjoy Today and Live a Fuller Tomorrow

letter E

I’m all mixed up. Tried doing the Ultimate Blog Challenge, posting daily. Every. Single. Day. Needless to say, that plan got botched. Also tried to do the A to Z challenge. Again, botched.

However, there is no rule that says posting alphabetically must be done exclusively for the the challenge. So, I will continue trudging moving on. When last I blogged, here, for the letters C & D, celebrate and dream.

No, wait. The last post was  here for the letter N. See? I told you I was confused. Now, working to get back in the flow of posting alphabetically, I’ll go back to where we left off and go from there. Which means today’s post is E . . .

Today E is for: Enjoy

Enjoy where you are right now.

It’s easier to live in the moment and with intention when we enjoy where we are and the world around us. Happiness is truly reached when we are ready to be what we are, not what we think we should be.

According to the Thesaurus, there are multiple synonyms for enjoy. Among them: appreciate, like, love, revel in, relish, savor, and take pleasure in.

Whether it’s raining, snowing, or the sun is shinning today is a day to relish. Enjoy it all. Rain or snow gives us moisture. The sun brightens our days, and feeds our soul. What’s not to enjoy?

If you left home for work or errands, or other reason or you’re at home. Enjoy your ability to be where you are.

When it’s meal time, take a moment to really taste the food. Enjoy the aroma of it, the warmth, and taste of it on your tongue.

Enjoy where you are now so that you can move toward your next goal with intention.

One of the synonyms of enjoy is “rejoice in” which always makes me think of the Bible. The Bible has plenty to say about enjoyment.

I like this verse from Ecclesiastes in the King James:
And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.   —Ecclesiastes 3:13

What do you enjoy?

What do you anticipate that you know you will enjoy?

 

 

I will trudge on with the A to Z challenge, just for kicks. Can’t promise how long it will take me to get through the alphabet. Best guess is less than twenty-four months. After all, four letters are complete, and there’s only 26 letters in the alphabet. 

Of course, there may be some posts thrown in that have nothing to do with living with intention done alphabetically.
