“When you love what you have, you have what you love.” Buddhist saying.
An interesting shift of attitude happens naturally to many people in later life. They stop yearning for what might have been and embrace the life they have. They find that accepting and loving their present way of life brings a sweet contentment.
If you are not yet old, why not try it anyway? All you have to do is think a new thought.
Joie de vivre (joy of living) is found now, here. There’s joy to be found in the life you are living now. There’s no joy in brooding over the life you do not have.
Thanks to blogger Marco M. Pardi for reminding us of this simple truth.
