I need to remember this, remember to enjoy the present, because it really is all we have. I always have lots of plans and ideas about things I want to do, what I want my life to be like. This means that I tend to focus on the future; I'm always convinced that I'll be happy when I have more money/the weekend arrives/I start that course (delete as appropriate).
The truth is that there are plenty of things that I can be grateful for at this very moment, but I need to remember to stop and count them. Some of these are: my boyfriend, my family (yes, they can be a pain, but yes, they are always there for me), that fact that I was able to come back to my job after a year traveling in the middle of a recession, friends in lots of different countries, my books (I could count my books as friends)...
Today, I'm going to try and be happy every moment... even the moment when I have to go to my boss' office because I realized last night that I made a mistake that's going to be a bit expensive to solve (sigh).
