What brought me to write this post?

Today has been a wonderful day, plenty of joy, beautiful little moments, laughters, hugs, mutual appreciation, love and care. I felt extremely energized and alive the whole day and that got me curious enough to write this article and share it with you, dear reader. 

What’s possible when I embrace joy by seizing the present moment?

I experienced several moments of joy during the day and it was easy to cease them by living in the present moment. I realize that I have changed the way I deal with life, here a couple of examples to illustrate what I am saying:

  • Yesterday, my daughter was speaking out loud in the living room when getting her breakfast and I got annoyed because I was in the middle of a meeting and I felt she was interrupting me.
    • Today, I took her little interventions as multiple opportunities for us to connect, hug each other, laugh together and connect. 
  • Yesterday, it was until the middle of the afternoon when my coach invited me to laugh together when I experienced the joy of laughing.
    • Today, I have been smiling and laughing since the day started after kissing my wife and telling her how much love all about her. 
  • Yesterday, I felt I was lacking energy to go through the day.
    • Today, my day started at 4.40 am with a new project and is still going at 10.39pm. I feel energized and plenty of joy to share, it feels warm inside.
    • Today, my wife and I laughed and cried together when watching the movie “Hector and the search for happiness“.
    • Today, we ended the day together, all three watching Lilo & Stitch with our daughter telling us ” I love you so much mommy and daddy”.

The common ground here is how I have ceased each moment today. What has shifted, has been the way I turned every situation into an opportunity to embrace joy with all my heart into it. What a wonderful feeling. 

That has made me wonder:

  • How many times have I felt irritated because of my lack of perspective?
  • How many opportunities have I left on the table because I wasn’t embracing the journey?

What if …..

  • I cease every single moment seeking to enjoy it?
  • I keep having fun and laughing around?
  • I embrace the journey and experience happiness everyday? What would be possible?

My invitation for you is experience happiness as a state of being

I have still a lot to learn and I feel grateful for that, so now that you know a little bit more about myself, I invite you to take a moment to look around, staying curious, being brave, spreading love to reflect about the following questions:

  • How do you experience joy everyday?
  • What makes you laugh out loud?
  • What do you do to seize each moment?
  • What are you avoiding today?
  • What is holding you back from experiencing happiness as a state of being like you certainly did when you were a child?

Stay at home, take a break to relax, keep yourself safe, and remember that:

We are incredibly better together, today more than ever!

Jesus
