This morning there was an Easter Egg hunt at church. Noah and his cousins loved it. They searched and searched until there were no more.
Searching for more and more is great in the context of an Easter Egg Hunt but the lovely thing to see was that they were all happy to share what they had gathered. They gave away lots of the eggs they had found.
Noah doesn’t even eat chocolate so the joy he got from the hunt was totally based on the challenge rather than the end gain!
It got me thinking we could all learn from this approach. If we could all start to enjoy the journey a little more and to focus on this rather than the end gain we would be so much happier!
So since I was thinking abut this I have been noticing all the areas this applies well to…
I went for a run after church and realised that I LOVED every minute of it – not just the feeling when I got home!
I made lunch and actually enjoyed the process of cutting the vegetables and then arranging them on my plate – it looked so lovely and colourful – the eating was a bonus!
I logged on to my work computer and actually enjoyed the moment of relaxation whilst the computer loaded up, I didn’t sit there feeling impatient and clock watching!
So maybe see what processes you can enjoy. Maybe routine tasks that you usually just put up with – actually start to make the most of them.
