I think the secret to having a joyful life is actually wanting the life you already have and being grateful for that life. Sometimes the desire for things – material things, relationships, jobs, experiences – makes us feel that our lives are not good enough. Like we somehow are failing because we do not have everything we want now!
I think that the act of wanting can be good – it can be a driver, a motivator. It can drive and motivate us in two ways – positive and negative. Wanting can make us feel small or hopeless, or wanting can make us feel abundant and grateful.
If we want more out of life from a starting point of wanting what we already have and being grateful for what we do have, then I believe that can help us grow in the light of hope and expand our lives in richer ways. I know this from my own experiences; I can only hope that it is helpful to others.
I hope this reminds you, that the life you want to have, starts by wanting the life you DO have!
From my wildly passionate creative soul to yours in peace…
