Life is what we pay attention to. I believe we all have an internal desire to feel ...
... fulfilled, when actually fulfillment is always there. It’s a choice we make, an action we take, a shift in perspective. It all comes down to gratitude. Focusing on each breath, realizing how amazing it feels to be alive. Looking into the sky, watching a tree, realizing that seasons come and go, everything is always changing and how amazing it is to have a human body that you can move around with. When placing your focus on everything you’re grateful for, realizing that you are enough, you’re creating fulfillment. If we leave it up to chance or wait for fulfillment to find us, it most likely won’t happen - because we suggest that something is missing in the first place. Often we confuse happiness with fulfillment and are in search of what we label as positive emotions. But i think the longtime goal should be internal fulfillment, which is neither an extreme positive or extreme negative emotion, it is right in the center of just being in the present moment - which is what creates harmony between your inner and outer world. The challenge is to not get caught up and distracted by the little things, to let go of fear and thoughts that disturb your peace - and consciously replace them with gratitude and love. Your mind is a muscle and can be trained, but you have to put in the work and show up to practice for it to become second nature. 🤍✨
