“When you realize….

clouds“Be content with what you have;
rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize there is nothing lacking,
the whole world belongs to you.”

– Lao Tse from the Tao de Ching

I really needed to hear this one today. I woke up feeling blue. I felt disappointed that my life was not the way I wanted it to be. I immediately chastised myself and acknowledged that I have everything I truly need. Still felt a teesny bit blue tho….. Until I read this.
I am rejoicing in the way things are, now. I can recall a time when I had a lot less, and I was wishing for what I have now.
