You can always be looking for something bigger and better.
But you will only ever have one moment like this.
So don't rush it by.
Don't long for the future when you have a beautiful day to live in right now.
Don't ignore the every day moments. The things that seem mundane. But appreciate them. Appreciate where your life is at right now. Find contentment with what you have been given.
This is something that I need to do - we all need to do - more.
There are so many things to be grateful for in each moment of life.
Every breath that we breathe is something to be grateful for.
Every special moment. Every hug from a child. Every sunset we witness.
Find contentment in the everyday things.
Try not to long for the future or brighter days so much, but seek happiness and peace in the here and now.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
