Daydream your life away…

Sometimes we lose ourselves to nostalgia to the point of disconnecting from the life that we have.

Good memories are great, as long as it’s not a reason to take our current blessings for granted.

Many of us are so fixated on the life that we once had, that we neglect the people and the quality of life that we have now.

Sometimes, in fact often, we even neglect our health, because if we don’t have much to look forward to, there’s not much point in taking care of ourselves. Right?


When you only take care of yourself on special occasions, you’re taking yourself for granted the rest of the time.

Memories are created between those special occasions more than on any specific occasion itself.

When we hear of the good old days, we don’t hear of weddings and birthdays. The majority of the stories are about the wholesome and uncomplicated lives that we once lived. The family bonds, the solid friendships, the lekker meals and adventures.

If you find yourself only celebrating life on special occasions, you’re taking yourself and your life for granted.

Worse than this, you’ve probably lost your self-worth to how you want others to see you, and you don’t see yourself clearly anymore.

You reclaim your life by reclaiming the present moment.

But you can’t reclaim the present moment if you don’t see value in it.

And you won’t see value in it if you spend your days longing for the past.

Live romantically. Now. Not in the past. And your life will be everything you dreamed it could be.

It always starts with you.
