“I want to cultivate a deep sense of gratitude, of groundedness, of enough, even while I’m longing for something more. The longing and the gratitude, both. I’m practicing believing that God knows more than I know, that he sees what I can’t, that he’s weaving a future I can’t even imagine from where I sit this morning.”
― Shauna Niequist
“The more you go with the flow of life and surrender the outcome to God, and the less you seek constant clarity, the more you will find that fabulous things start to show up in your life.”
― Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass
Rather than wanting to hold to the past longer and slow things down and stop the aging process — just revel in the power of now! You can't stop time, and you won't stop the recycling process that is taking place upon this planet, nor would you want to — but you do not have to suffer the moving through time. Every moment can be more wonderful than the moment before.

Your Daily Now Moment!
Today, bring this openheartedness into the way you relate to yourself and others.
See what happens as you use your heart to prime your mind for good in relationships.
...that you should never be content with so little
when you can reach out for something big.
Have you ever wondered why so many people settle for so little?
You do not have to place yourself among them.
The world is an abundant place. Abundant with opportunity,
abundant with good fortune, abundant with ideas,
and abundant with love.
Reach into that abundance and take what is rightfully yours.
It is your inheritance, gifted to you by God. Let yourself have it.
Do not fail to reach for it for fear that it will not come to you.
How can it come to you if you do not reach for it?
Do not be content with so little.
Reach, stretch, for something big.
