“A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin; what else does a man need to be happy?”
~ Albert Einstein
Maybe a book and a cup of tea too?
I need far less than I think I do in order to live a fulfilled life. Contentment and gratitude: these are things that no amount of money can purchase but that are priceless when I learn to embrace them.
It’s Thursday already. More reminders this week to be present and make the most of each precious day I am gifted with. Some days I falter; recognizing the trip is the first step to getting back on track.
Other lessons this week too. I’ll never reach the place where I know it all, or have everything figured out, this side of heaven. Some days though, I wish I’d learn certain lessons more fully so I don’t have to keep revisiting them.
In the end, it’s all part of the tapestry of my life I’m weaving through the choices I make every day.
Is the legacy I am creating the one I want to leave behind? Is my sphere of influence better because I’m here? These things I ponder almost daily.
