First, a reflection on things…
What I do not have:
- stylish clothes
- a fancy car
- a big house
What I do have:
For years, I tried a lot of things, and accumulated a lot of stuff. The details aren’t important, because over the years, all the things and stuff ended up forgettable and forgotten. The stuff I did or acquired did not contribute to the most memorable moments of my life to this point and, for the most part, proved to be a waste of money, time or effort.
Some of this realization is, over time, a natural part of maturity and understanding what is most important in life. However, this ever-evolving process has, for me, been quite an enjoyable ride as well. Taking time to step back and appreciate the whole process for what it is – personal growth – and acknowledging each inspirational moment for the unique, experience it enhances, toward that of knowledge, strength, confidence and abundance of life. I am still learning and growing and happily evolving toward greater peace and passion than I ever realized possible.
It brings me joy to know that I have what I need within me, around me, in my life – right now, in the moment. It’s not the things or stuff that gets me there. I have enough, because I have what I need to live life completely, gratefully, happy.
So, it took me some years to get to this place, but I’m here now, and I wish that everyone have the wonderful opportunity to live here, in happiness too, sooner than later.
