Enjoying Every Season in Life

 

Autumn sceneI was recently looking through some of my old documents and stumbled on a newsletter from my college group called Chi-alpha.

The picture in front of the newsletter made me smile, it was a picture of me on a boat with a friend. It bought great memories….

The group had traveled to Colorado for the weekend, we camped close to a lake and spent the entire Saturday tubing.

It was by far the wildest thing I have ever done till date. You can tell I am not that adventurous :)

As I flipped through the newsletter, one thought came to mind: ” enjoying every phase”.

That was a decision I made so many years ago, I chose to enjoy every phase of my life.

It is a decision I am grateful for today.

At every stage you can either to embrace and enjoy  the stage as you transition to the next stage.

Or better still you can decide to complain and see everything that is wrong with that stage in life.

At that time of my Colorado trip, I was single and in graduate school. My life was not perfect but I was very happy.  I traveled a lot with my group, planned outreach events. In retrospect, I can categorically say I had so much free time and I am so glad what I invested my time in.

If you are reading this and you are single, invest your time wisely. Have fun, help people, develop yourself. Engage in activities that add value to yourself and to  others.  Choose to enjoy that phase of life, it  goes by so quickly.

Don’t wait till you get to the next season in life. You will keep waiting.

Enjoy where you are now.

Whatever the season you are in life. Every season in life has its joy and challenges, choose to be thankful for the joys as you trust God for wisdom to handle the challenges.

Adopt a winning attitude.

Choose to be happy, and choose to enjoy your life now.

The best is yet to come.

Cheering you on to success!
