There are so many simple things in life that I take for granted every day, such as good health, freedom of speech, and having a family who doesn’t want me to [ever] move out.
We’re so quick to say what we want in life, or what we hope to one day have or do; and as much as having goals and aspirations is a beautiful thing, it’s equally as important to be grateful for what you already have, who you already are, and what you’re already doing.
My mantra for this week is going to reflect this quote by Epicurus:
“Do not 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.”
With this all in mind, I wanted to reflect on just a few things that I am choosing to be extra grateful for today:
