I remember before getting married my sister gave me some advice that I Will never forget. She said: Enjoy life, do not let people put pressure on you with their comments, because people will always put pressure on you (maybe not directly, but through their questions an comments). It looks like they are never satisfied, and they always want more from you. She used this example: When you are single people will ask you: When are you going to have a boyfriend? When finally, you have a boyfriend people Will ask you: when are you getting married? When you are married? When you get married the next question is: When are you having kids? And after having a child they will ask you: When are you having the next child? And the list questions have no end.

I remember my sister telling me not to give in to the pressure but enjoy your life, and she has been so right since she gave me the advice I have noticed how I have been surrounded by those questions, and sometimes I have caught even myself asking those question to people. It seems we are never satisfied, and this is in every area of our lives. Even sometimes we put that pressure on ourselves. When we finally accomplish something, now we want to accomplish the next thing. And this causes us not to enjoy life because we are thinking about the next thing we want and forget to enjoy today. We forget to live. And suddenly time has passed without noticing. Let us not let life fade away without enjoying every day on the situation that we currently are.

Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Matthew 6:34 (ESV)
