Life Should Be Enjoyed
Posted on 11 October 2013
I am sure from the title of this post, you were expecting an inspirational montage about the joys of life and recovery. Hate to disapoint you. Here is the truth... life is hard.
It is for this reason, that we must find joy in the little things in life. Take the picture underneath for instance. Sometimes, we all just need to break dance in the lunch room.
I think it is silly to pretend that any one person is particularly cursed, or worse off then the next man. No matter what your cicumstances are, we all have problems, and we all have things to be grateful for. What stands New Lyfe apart, is that we have each other.
Never did I think I would be surrounded by so many people, who are just good people. Throughout the years I have learned not to take anything for granted. Life can change in an instant. People die, relationships fade, bad shit happens every day. It is the moments in between that we take for granted. Luckily, we have the capacity to chose what we remember.
At the end of the day, what are you going to remember? Are you going to remember your bills? are you going to remember that guy that cut you off in traffic? or are you going to remember the moments when you were laughing?
It is easier said than done, but persoanlly... I chose to remember break dancing in the lunch room.
