Be present in every moment. If you put in the effort to notice, the good easily outweighs the bad.
It is hard to know what the future holds; where we will be years from now. What I do know is that the well-known saying, “Home is where the heart is,” rings truer and truer to me as each year passes.
It’s only when we pause for a moment, take a step back, and look outside our own little worlds that we begin to notice the little things that we turn a blind eye to almost every single day.
The first time you do something kind for someone who cannot repay you is the first time you realize that giving love will bring you infinitely more joy than trying to receive love. You can still be generous even when you have little.
Wait for the guy who shows up, no matter what. Who talks about your future without question.
It’s all about presence. Who is there when there is nothing to say? Who is there to listen when we are trying to make sense of it all? Who is there to cry with you in line at the grocery store?
