A Day at the Beach

A Day at the Beach - Jina Wallwork
When your mind is filled with obstacles, you must take a moment to rest. Striving to succeed cannot occupy every minute. You may achieve everything your heart desires and more. The world could be delivered to your door wrapped in love and appreciation, but this will only make you happy if you define success as the admiration you receive from distant strangers. I would prefer a definition of success that includes the ability to maintain deep and heartfelt connections with those you love. Success is a feeling of gratitude for all that you have, it isn't a circumstance.

What is your life? Does it involve your own gratitude for all that you posses? Do you stop and enjoy the moment? Do you stop working in order to enjoy a day at the beach with those you love? Can you alter your plans to assist others in your life when they require comfort and compassion? What is the routine you have created for yourself? Does it allow space for enjoyment and love? Is this the life you want to live? Strive for success but place it in perspective.
