Live in the present.
I believe those two things are the key to a happier life. And, happily, they are very simple. Easy? No, not always. But simple? Yes. And easier with practice.
And so I hope you will join me in practicing gratitude - there's no better way to stay in the present than by focusing your attention on whatever is "good" in your life right now.
Right now I am grateful for -
So much fresh produce in the gardens that most of each meal is garden-fresh.
Gorgeous full moon right outside our sun room (or moon room, in this case) windows (and a clear view of a barred owl as it perched on a dead tree as a bonus)!
An abundance of fresh flowers to cut and bring inside for bouquets.
First batch of green beans. Love these (all of which were enjoyed raw and fresh).
Homemade strawberry ice cream! Twice (once with friends which makes it taste even better)!!
The morning glory vine S planted starting to bloom as it climbs up our stair railing. Lovely!
And you? What are you feeling grateful for?
