This is the last official holiday of the summer. What are your plans? Whatever you do, please take time to enjoy the moment. Forget about the problems you have been dealing with. Put them on the back burner for now. There isn’t much that can be done about them any way at this point in time. Just take the long weekend to try to relax and unwind the best that you can.
If it’s where you can, plan an outing with your family or friends. Take advantage of every single moment that you can spend with those that you love. Make memories with these precious people in your life.
A lot of times we are sitting in front of someone, but we are not present with them. Our minds are a million miles away, and often times, it shows on our faces and in our lack of contributing to the conversation. Put down those cell phones also and pay attention the ones that are there with you. Vow to be intentionally focused when you’re with family and friends. Focus on them and enjoy the moment instead of thinking of what is on your “to do” list next week or what work you’ll have to go back to after the holiday weekend. Simplify your life. Life is to be lived and enjoyed to the fullest not packed with so much to do with so little time.
Take this weekend to just … be. Whether it’s being one with nature, being in the presence of those you love dearly, or just being still and one with God and the universe. Enjoy each and every moment that you have been given this weekend.
Blessings to you and yours!
