#AtoZChallenge: Z is For Zest for Life
Zest for life?
It is a positive approach towards the life that moves life with excitement and enthusiasm. Life will be just waiting for death if one loses it. Hence, the zest is everything that makes the life beautiful. It comes from inner happiness. If you happy from inside, you will find tremendous enthusiasm in your every activity. Discovering that inner happiness of life is the most important thing to bring back the zest of childhood.
Zen of living:
If you look at the children, you’ll find they have tremendous energy for everything. They do every single activity with full of enthusiasm. They are so energetic that parents have to struggle a lot to make them sleep. They do so because they can involve themselves totally in any activity. When the play, their total beings are involved in playing. When they paint, they invest their all energy in painting. They have no worries of future, they have no regret of past and they have no fear to lose anything. They are only living in the present. Hence, no energy is wasted in thinking about past and future and total energy is engaged in the present.
Living in the present with full of consciousness is the Zen of living. The Zen living is the key to finding the zest in life. When you know to celebrate today, you’ll find real happiness in everything.
How to find the Zest for life?
Do those things that make you happy unless you won’t find enthusiasm in those works. Love the activity which you are doing unless you couldn’t invest your full energy within it. It’s very important to choose the work that you can do from your heart or try to find joy from the work that makes you bore. Suppose, you love to write, but you have to do a job that keeps continuing your monetary flow and you don’t like to do that job. I’ll say either you find some interesting things from that job or change it. Otherwise, the frustration comes from that work, will spoil all your enthusiasms of life.
The zest comes from inside. You cannot find that when you feel low. So, try to find your happiness in your every work. The zest will follow that and makes your life exciting and youthful at any of your age.
