On Gratitude. ( The Evolution Series: Week 8 )

I’ve been bathing in the waters of gratitude lately.
Doing my best to take steps deeper into the warmth that lives there.

week 8-1

I think it’s easy for us to climb higher, to reach for success and happiness at the peaks.
To try and jump from mountain top to mountain top of our best moments.

We put our heads down and we put one foot in front of the other until we reach our destination.

However, if there’s anything that I’ve learned over the years it’s that the destination is an illusion.
A mirage in the distance.

If we take a few moments to look left and right to see the details that make the journey a little bit brighter and often times easier then it’s a much sweeter journey along the way.

When you finally admit to yourself that a destination isn’t reality and that the journey is eternal then more than ever it becomes clear that enjoying the process is essential.

Take a moment today, look around and find the sweetness in your life.

Today I’m grateful for:
-the people in my life that support me
-the people in my life that challenge me
-amazing coffee
-whole foods
-my sweet apartment
-beautiful light
-the ability to do my work from anywhere.

If you feel inclined, I’d love to hear about yours in the comments below! 

With love,

Great post! I am thankful to live in the beautiful mountains of Asheville, thankful for sunshine, my group of artist friends, and the gift of creativity that I can play with everyday!
