Standing in the lobby of my apartment building tonight, I overheard someone say, “I’m really lucky. I have everything I need.” The simplicity of this statement, coupled with the totally honest tone of voice in which it was delivered floored me for a moment. It’s not often that you hear anyone admit that level of contentment.
And that is the true key to happiness isn’t it? Simply being content with what you have, what you’re offered, and what comes your way – rather than constantly striving for “the next thing”.
