The Life I Want…

Life-IsI 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!Gratitude-1

From my wildly passionate creative soul to yours in peace…
