Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
More is not necessarily the answer
We often think that if a little is good, more will be better, or that if we are not happy, it must be because we don’t have enough of something.
Wanting and craving. The desire for what we don’t have prevents us from appreciating and enjoying what we do have – right now, this moment. We often sell ourselves continual dissatisfaction by focusing on what we appear to lack.
So how much is enough? Can we learn to savor the blessings we have now, today? Do we really need more, or do we need to fully experience the gifts of the present?
I can always want more, but today I will concentrate on what I have right now.
