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. 🙂
