A friend recently made this quote her Facebook status:
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 Tzu
This really resonated with me. So often we're striving for what's next: the last five pounds, the last debt payed, the next thing on the list to cross off and attain. I often operate a few hours or even days (okay, years) ahead of myself, anticipating what's to be, thinking that in a certain span of time, I'll be satisfied. I think the key to true happiness is in the quote above... so simple, but so true. Be content with what you have. The rest will flow from there.
