How I Stay Positive Part 2. Living In The Present.

Have you ever been presented with a meal that looks so delicious you just want to devour it straight away? Often I'll rush to take a bite and then the inevitable happens; a burnt tongue. This happens to me way to often with hot chocolate, pizza, so, so often with pizza. My point is that we can often be the same when it comes to life. I don't know about you but I spend so much time trying to rush things that I forget to live and enjoy where I am now.

Trust The Process
I often get too preoccupied with how I want my future life to look that I forget to appreciate what my life is like now. I forget to exist exactly where I am now. When I graduated University I had a certain picture of how my life would look a few years later. It didn't quite turn out how I expected. so I spent alot of time wishing I was ahead in life. I pondered on how much time had gone by and I was no where closer to any of these 'goals'. I found myself not being able to enjoy certain things because I was so focused on what I didn't have. I put off being 'happy' because I wasn't where I thought I should be. I should have been enjoying the life that I have now. If we keep wishing we were ahead in life we'll miss all the small lessons life tries to teach us. I should have taken all the energy I put into wishing I was ahead and instead focused it on the now and making the most out of my time. I mean, it's true we'll never be as young as we are right now so why waste time worrying on things we don't have total control over.

I've learned recently to trust the process, and not to rush things. I trust that right now is where I need to be. I can't skip and jump to the future because there's still so much I need to learn, and who knows if that future is really what I want? Let's embrace the now and really appreciate it. Millennials, we will get to where we need to be, we just need to trust the process.

Do you ever put off 'happiness' because you wished your life was different?


  1. Loved reading this post! I've similarly learnt to trust the process and enjoy the small moments as they happen, recently. Too often we spent our lives nostalgic for the past or craving an unknown future 'happiness' when happiness is right here, now. (:

    1. Thanks Michelle. I completely agree, I spent so long being nostalgic or looking forward that I feel I might not have enjoyed some experiences as much as I should have. I need to remind myself sometimes that I'm exactly where I need to be.


  2. I love this post because it's so relateable. Just enjoy life in the present , I guess. Great post! Would love to be able to follow each other on our blogs so let me know, so I can follow you back!! xx

  3. I agree, it's always good to take your time and never rush anything - when things are meant to happen everything will fall in their place!

    Positivity always brings good too! :)
