I hope that y'all don't mind my reflections every now and then. But life often awes me and brings me to my knees, and for that I am grateful. If anything, I have a sincere hope that my thoughts only spark something within you to dive deeper into our path of true happiness. ANYWHO! Shall we?
The past few weeks have been lovely in the sense that life has slowed down a little. There's been a nice break from work, and naturally with that everyday pace has felt just a touch more breathable.
A general theme in my life the past 7 years (roughly) has been how can I find true contentment? How can I truly be happy with what I have in this present moment. My general tendency is to want more, compare myself with others, act off of impulses, etc.
As I sat around our house surrounded with my close friends and family, filled to the brim with yummy food, I thought--this is it. It really can't get any better. Anything else is just the icing on the cake. (And although I DO love icing, it's not always necessary!)
This thought isn't an unfamiliar one, especially now. I mean, isn't this one of our biggest lessons of this year? Not to take things and people for granted? And as always, it's always easier said than done. So, how do we find this contentment and the ability to truly be in the moment? I'm no expert, but here are a few things that have worked every now and then for me.
These are the thoughts that came to me over the past few days. Maybe it will spark something in you, maybe it will just get you thinking for a moment or two. But for whatever it's worth, this is what ends up in my head!
Thank you for allowing me this little space in the ethers to share my own humanistic evolution with all of you.
Much love to you all!
