Be Grateful, Be Happy

Here's Something To Feel Good About Today!

"I wonder if gratefulness is the bridge from sorrow to joy, spanning the chasm of our anxious striving. Freed from the burden of unbridled desires, we can enjoy what we have, celebrate what we've attained, and appreciate the familiar. For if we can't be happy now, we'll likely not be happy when." Philip Gulley Porch Talk

Buddah on BridgeMy friend sent this quote to me the other day. It followed our conversation regarding my feelings of disappointment when having unmet expectations after a business meeting. She reminded me that the process is what matters, staying on my path and letting go of results is the challenge. Learning from my experience and letting go quickly were the way back to gratitude.

Being human and striving to create our desires in the world, we sometimes lose our way. It's impossible to feel bad, sad or disappointed when you find something in that same moment to appreciate and celebrate.
