I find my mind wandering often. Always to what I don’t have, where I haven’t gone, who I haven’t met, when I’ve missed opportunities, and why I can’t be…..more. Even now I am contemplating why I can’t simply be satisfied with all the blessings surrounding me. It’s always about wanting more.
But, looking at what we think we’re missing makes us miss what we really have.
I don’t need more friends. I need to cherish and accept the friends I have into my life completely.
I don’t need more time. I need to manage the time I have better and set priorities that utilize my time to support my joy.
I don’t need more space. I need to purge my space (physical, emotional and mental) of unwanted, unnecessary and negative things.
I don’t need more experience. I need to reflect upon my experiences and learn from them, truly grow through what they reveal.
I don’t need more happiness. I need to be aware of the happiness I already possess, within myself and my family and give that real meaning and value in my life.
I don’t need more peace. Making the changes I just listed will bring me all the peace I need.
