It is Still Best to be Honest and Truthful…

For some reason quotes by Laura Ingalls Wilder have been popping up in my feed, lately. I’m glad. They have a way of grounding me when life seems to be spinning out of control.

How about you? Do you have a favorite writer or quotes to help keep you grounded?

“Happiness Will Never Come…..”

“Happiness will never come to those who fail to appreciate what they have.” ~Budha

I find myself focusing a lot these days on gratitude and this quote really stood out to me. Not from a standpoint of appreciating the “THINGS” I have, but from appreciating where I am in my life. Appreciating my family. Appreciating my friends. Appreciating my health. Appreciating where I am this very second of my life and the time I have been given to experience this chapter in my life.

Sure, others may have more, they may have accomplished more in their careers or experienced situations I never will. But that is their journey not mine. And for that I choose to appreciate and find happiness in my own journey.

What part of your journey are you failing to appreciate that is holding you back from your happiness?
