I'm so grateful to see beauty in the subtleties around me. I'm grateful to have renewed hope in the things I want to achieve. Within that, I am grateful to recognize the difference now between wanting and longing and I will release the longing and continually remind myself that I am complete without any outside circumstances needing to change. Everything happens for a reason and though it may be disappointing or hard to understand there are important lessons in all of it. So far one of the most important lessons for me has been my own completeness and feeling fulfilled even when not everything goes as I want it to go. What things to you want? What things do you long for? How can we release the need for a specific outcome while still allowing ourselves to pursue our dreams? It is easier said than done and I welcome any tips because I too am learning as I go.
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
