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 Tse

W e often forget to think about how bountiful life is. All we need to do is to try and count the leaves on an oak tree or the raindrops rolling down your window on a rainy day. We have so much and do not see it. There is so much to be content about even when it seems that life has not been equitable or fair. I have learned to visualize the possibilities. I pay attention to what is right there in front of me. Today I watched the multiple buds that will soon bloom into tiger lilies. I immediately felt the whole world belonged to me.

What have you observed that makes you feel this way?
