"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.'
'Wax Poetic' by gildinglilies
Life can be, well, a little tricky at times. And whilst it can be easy to accept life without luxurious material comforts, or extra 'stuff', it can be difficult to accept those things that you feel are out of your control, or you might wish were somehow different.
My life feels a little like this at the moment, as it does from time to time for all of us. But as I walked around my parents' gorgeous, pretty garden yesterday, with everything in full bloom, with the all the fantastic range of colours, the smell of the climbing roses wafting over me along with the gentle summer breeze, and the birds singing, I found myself thinking 'does it get any better than this?'
And if we find it impossible on occasion to rejoice in how things are in our own lives, we can certainly rejoice in the moment. When you find a lovely, calm, pretty, warming or joyous part in you day, enjoy it; try not to worry about what has been, or what may come. For that moment is really all you have...for now.
