Let’s face it, being grateful for what you already have isn’t easy. Everyday we are trained by our society to be dissatisfied. To be dissatisfied with ourselves, our career, our weight, our relationships, and even our laundry detergent. We are told that no matter what we have, it could be better. If only we worked harder, we could move up the ladder and get what we’ve been missing.
The truth, however, is that we already have everything that we need inside of us to find happiness. We simply need to connect the dots and realize that we can find happiness in this moment if we are willing to let go of chasing someone else’s dream. Someone else’s vision of what we really need.
“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when
our hearts are conscious of our treasures.”
