Simple Living :: Taking Time to Live in the Moment

We oftentimes find ourselves busy in the daily routine, with work or household chores. We catch ourselves missing out on the splendor of God's creation, the simple things and watching life unfold around us. We fail to take time to smell the roses, to walk in the rain, and even to feed the birds.

Today, we took time.

 How can you take the time to live in the moment?

Savor the little things - No matter how small, it is the little things that make us the happiest. Feeding the birds was one of the simplest, yet most rewarding experiences we've had in weeks.
Enjoy what you are doing, when you are doing it - Don't think about everything else while you are engaged in the present. All those other things can simply wait. Be in the moment.

If you love it, make time for it - Those things which make us happiest - family, hobbies, etc. - should be top priority. Yes, work/school/chores are important, but let's face it, they certainly don't equate to the fulfillment we get from those things which we love.
Just let go - Life is full of lemons and making lemonade can be tiresome. So, when you end up with a crate of lemons, throw them out and enjoy what you have left.
How do you make time for what really matters?
