The best life is one where we no longer strive for more. Our sense of contentment is a reflection of how we should view ourselves and what we are given. It is self-defeating to be anxious for more or to envy others. When we are constantly hoping for more happiness, we are in a constant state of frustration.
In other words, what matters most? Not too much, not too little.
Now is a great time to appreciate what we have. Besides life itself, there is family, friends, and everything else that surrounds us naturally. All we have to do is take a moment to look around. It may be time to make a gratitude list of all the good things we have to be grateful for.
Do you have people in your life that you would miss terribly if they were no longer there? A walk offers many things to appreciate and feel good about, don’t you think? The flowers, trees, birds, and clouds in the sky offer a feeling of calmness and harmony. It could be a caterpillar crossing the sidewalk or a neighbor waving at you. There’s nothing more adorable than a cute pup or kid enjoying a special moment.
The happiness, peace, and enjoyment of life now just makes sense if you are satisfied and at peace with oneself and others.
