If you want to enjoy life more, then these quotes are for you. They will help you appreciate your life now, as it is. And they will help you understand what it takes to enjoy your life now.
1. Be An Enjoyable Person
If you want to enjoy life more, then do things that make you feel good. Part of that is being a kind, considerate, and pleasant person. You feel good when you are good to other people. It leads to fewer disputes and problems in relationships. And you go to sleep knowing that you’ve made someone’s day better than worse. All of this adds up to enjoying life more, so make sure you practice kindness and consider other people as often as possible.
2. The Myth Of Spending Money Now Or Later To Enjoy Your Life
Don’t you love this quote? It’s a reminder that it’s not all now or all later. Both of those ways can get you in trouble and cause a lot of pain.
The best way to do it is through a balance that allows us to enjoy our lives now and in our later years.
Find that balance. Make that commitment to spending some money now and enjoying your life, as well as to saving for the future so you are taken care of.
3. You Don’t Need To Capture Everything On Film
I remember a family vlogger saying that if life was worth living it was worth recording. That’s true. But recording can get in the way of actually being mindful and present.
It’s important to just take in the sounds, sights, and feelings, without looking through a filter. It’s fun to capture important moments on camera, but it’s more fun to experience them fully.
4. Go After Your Dreams, But Enjoy The Process!
It’s important to have some purpose and be working towards some visions in life, but it’s equally important to enjoy the process as you move towards those visions and as you achieve goals along the way. If you want to enjoy life to the fullest, you will do both, not one or the other. A vision in life gives you a reason to be alive and enjoying the process gives you a sense of living.
Note: If you don’t have a vision in life, I recommend taking Lifebook. It will help you get clarity around your dreams and enjoy the process as you move towards them.
5. Enjoy Life Now – Don’t Wait For A Specific Moment Or Time
A very traditional viewpoint is that you can enjoy life when you retire. But that’s a tired way of looking at things. As Reno Omokri says, you may not get a chance to enjoy life if you wait until retirement because you may not live long enough to retire. So why not enjoy it now? If you don’t, you may be letting your time to enjoy it expire.
Bottom line: Don’t wait for something to happen in your life so that you can enjoy it. Retirement, money, relationships – these are not things that will help you enjoy your life more.
Create a life NOW where you enjoy every moment. That may mean you need to get rid of some people in your life, make some changes, or change your mindset and beliefs, but do it now in case you don’t get a chance to do it later.
6. Welcome People Into Your Life
This is a great enjoy life quote to remember when someone who was once against you has a change of mindset and wants to be in your life.
Sometimes it takes people a while to come around, but when they do, don’t push them away. Allow them to be in your life and appreciate their friendship, love, support, or respect.
Always remember that we do the best with what we have and know. As our mindsets, beliefs, and habits change, so does the way we interact with and feel about other people.
It takes empathy and compassion to make this quote work for you, but if you want to enjoy life more, you will let go of the grudges and welcome the changes that take place in people.
7. Don’t Wait To Enjoy Your Life
Prince EA asks, “Will your last words be ‘if only I had…?'”
If you really want to enjoy your life every day, then remember this quote. People on their deathbed regret the chances they didn’t take, the joy they didn’t feel, and the moments they didn’t seize. Learn from them.
By remembering that you will die, but you don’t need to be on your deathbed wishing you had enjoyed life more, you will make the most of every day in the best way you can.
8. Allow Others To Enjoy Life In Their Own Way
It’s important to enjoy our lives, but we need to allow others to enjoy life too. This is easier said than done because so many of us think that everyone needs to be like us. That kind of thinking is important to let go of. We need diversity in this world.
If someone is enjoying their life and not causing you or anyone else any harm, let them enjoy it.
Don’t try to force them to be someone they are not.
Don’t try to make them engage in activities they don’t want to engage in.
Don’t tell them they are wrong, stupid, or ridiculous for living the way they do.
Allow them to enjoy their life in their own way.
The biggest benefit is you will let go of a lot of judgments and, in turn, be a more kind and loving person focused on happiness instead of hate – and that will allow you to enjoy your life more too.
9. How To Make Decisions That Help You Enjoy Life
Oprah says that your life is always speaking to you and that voice helps you make the decisions that keep you stuck or move you towards your highest good. If you want to enjoy life more, you need to become attuned to that inner voice that guides you towards the decisions that create more of what you want in your life.
10. Stop Wishing It Were Different Right Now
It’s important to enjoy the process towards the visions you’ve set out for yourself, but it’s also important to clearly see life as it is, not as you think it should be.
For instance, if you make $100 this week but feel like you should’ve made $1000, that’s going to make you miserable. You will never be able to feel good about life when you are wishing reality was different than it is.
Accept what is. Even enjoy what is happening right now as an experience or lesson, or as something you will want to remember one day. And at the same time, do things that help you move towards the visions you’ve set out for yourself.
