A Glimpse into My Journey

One step at a time.



When I was 5, I wanted the biggest, fluffiest stuffed animals. 🐻

When I was 10, I wanted nail polish in every color of the rainbow. 💅

When I was 15, I wanted all the trending shades of hoodies and jeans. 👖

When I was 20, I wanted perfect grades in college. 📝

Now, the things that bring me happiness are no longer things. 🙅

They’ve turned into priceless emotions and feelings which money cannot buy. 🙃

For the first time, I didn’t have a wish list last Christmas.  Instead, I created a list of items I didn’t want. 🎄

If we can accept our lives for what they offer and take gratitude for what we have, we would all enjoy each day with a fuller heart. 💗

No longer would we occupy the space in our brains with unfulfilled desires because those desires will transform into appreciation, contentment, and happiness. 🙂

      That happens to people a lot. Oftentimes, we think we really want something and have to have it, but when we finally get it, the initial joy fades away pretty quickly.

        Yes you are right…it is actually the desire more than the need.

        Yes, exactly. What we cannot or do not have always seems more enticing.
