Living in The Moment Can Make Life Amazing

on


You should always try to live every moment to the fullest. Happiness also comes from this. It can be so much as a drive with friends or just being around people who make you happy.I discovered this when I was in the process of recovering from depression. I have suffered from depression for years but not every day is bad for me. It is small moments like finding a new spot while exploring or surrounding myself with people who genuinely care about me that make me realize how amazing life can truly be. These moments trigger my happiness. I’ve found that by doing the things I love with the people that I love have helped me along the way. It’s the little things that people should really pay attention to. Taking chances, and finding things you love in everyday. Give yourself a reason to wake up every morning.

One of the things I enjoy the most in my life is going to concerts and seeing my favorite bands live. Something about the way each concert makes me feel, makes me realize that I need to cherish each moment. Each concert is like a new adventure and feeling. When I first started going to concerts I would find myself wasting my time posting pictures and taking videos so much that I wouldn’t really enjoy the concert to the fullest. I learned that being there in the moment is so much better than trying to capture every memory from that night. Actually closing my eyes and feeling the music run through me, taking in the love of each person in the room. We were all there for the same reason and that made me feel so connected.


Another one of my favorite moments is when I went to Norris Lake in Tennessee with my mom and her boss’s family. I had been twice before but every time was a different memory and experience. It was during the summer so I had no cares or worries about school and I could just enjoy myself. At a certain point during our trip we had taken the pontoon boat out on the lake to watch the sunset. It was the most beautiful sunset I had every experienced and being in that moment made me feel so much warmth. That sunset made me look at the world so much differently.

Once when I was with a few of my friends we went on a drive through our town and we drove for hours . That night was one of the most amazing nights, just being with my friends and listening to our favorite songs. I can even distinctly remember closing my eyes at one point hoping the night would never end. That small moment made me feel so much closer to my friends and so much happier with my life at the time.

I strongly believe in living in the moment because it is something that has made me carry on and keep moving forward throughout my life. Happiness seems so hard to find when I am sad but simple things can make me feel so much better. Simple moments make me realize that I can be happy and I can be okay. Living in the moment gives me hope and happiness. Those small moments bring so much happiness to my life. Those are the moments that I will remember the most.
