I was thinking about life and it’s complexities, and how my life has been, with all it’s ups and downs.
And I’ve come to the conclusion that we begin our lives quite simply as infants and children, not wanting or needing anything else but the basics of life. And then somewhere in adulthood we want more, do more, get busy, have more and our lives become complicated. We then get caught up in the busyness of life that we forget or don’t have time to appreciate the beauty in our own lives.
Some of us appreciate from time to time, but often it’s a fleeting thought of gratitude, not conscious.
Being still and appreciating the simplicity that life has to offer is all that is needed to be happy.
Some of us strive and struggle to reclaim that simplicity we all began our lives with and some are just there, because they practice gratitude daily and consciously.
Take time to appreciate what you have in front of you. Have the wonderment of a child and you’ll see “how simply beautiful life can be“.
