This place of discontentment, where eyes are clouded by what could be, at times, the inner critic telling us what should be, but rarely content with what is.
I see kindness, I desire a little more edge.
I see edge, I desire a little more kindness.
We see this in relationships all the time; too much, too little, too nice, too cold, too overbearing, too detached -- Compared to what?
At what point will you be satisfied with what is?
Choose to become more attuned to the present moment, to what is.
It is all a matter of perspective.
The thoughts you focus on shape your reality,
Your reality is reinforced by the words you speak.
These words and thoughts create stories, which determines your self image, and your overall mindset; a fixed mindset or growth mindset.
Going back to perspective, choose to practice gratitude for what is, no longer what should be, which only distracts us from acknowledging where we are already blessed. To truly witness the beauty in the present moment, we must detach from the outcome, release expectations and remain open to the opportunities that are present in each moment.
