Focus: Through appreciation, I find the peace and happiness that I have been searching for.
So many people in the world don’t have one tenth of what we have. We live in 3- and 4-bedroom houses. Others live ten people to a room. We eat three meals a day and plenty of snacks in between. Others don’t have enough to keep their children from starvation. We have closets full and overflowing with clothes we don’t wear — others wear rags.
You might say, you have worked hard for all these things. This is true. But, many of us no longer enjoy our life, because we are so busy keeping up with our bills. Many of us forget to appreciate the sunshine and the birds singing because we are so stressed running from job to market to home. Many of us are so wrapped up in a “successful life” that we forget that personal success resides in inner peace, love for the people around us, and a feeling of security in our heart.
Perhaps as we become more “appreciative beings” instead of “wanting more beings” we will find the peace and happiness that we have been searching for.
