Enjoy the moment!

It's a beautiful morning here! This morning I dropped off Little One at nursery and as I was leaving together with another Mum, one of the staff, just arriving, asked 'So, Ladies, is this sunshine going to stay or is the rain going to return later?' Laughing, I replied 'Oh don't worry about later, just enjoy the sunshine now!' The staff member grumbled that was all very well but it was difficult to know how to dress when the weather kept changing. But afterwards I couldn't help thinking that perhaps that is the way to happiness - enjoy the sunshine while it lasts and don't worry about what will happen afterwards. I guess this is the same lesson many thinkers have been trying to teach us for millennia, as Jesus said when he talked to his followers about the lilies of the field, and no doubt many others did before him. Some truths are universal but every generation still has to learn them anew.

there is definitely truth to your statement! we do worry too much. it's funny, i tend to go both ways. my mom was always a huge worrier and my dad was not. she's high strung; he's laid back. and of course, the worrying she did drove me nuts (still does). but i seem to be like both of them, a big mix of the two. i worry a lot sometimes. but sometimes i do not. finding the happy medium is what i need to do
