“Don’t spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.” – Epicurus
Whatever it takes, you’ve got to appreciate the good things in your life.
The song and the laughter on your lips, the dance in your feet, the love in your heart, your sharing with others, the inspiration and sweet sensation you experience – all these are points of good living.
Being grateful prevents you from falling into sadness and makes you even more fulfilled.
As Ralph Waldo Emerson once admonished, “Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.”
