One thing I am working on is being grateful for what I have in the present, rather than being fearful that I will no longer have the same circumstances in the future.
For example: “I am thankful that I have this now,” rather than “I am afraid I will no longer have this tomorrow.”
Circumstances change and this is largely out of our control. We can work hard towards the things we desire, and we will be rewarded. But sometimes, try as we might to line our ducks up in a row, what we receive isn’t equal to what we believe we deserve.
I believe that adopting this perspective will lead me to a happier life because I’ll shorten the amount of time I spend worrying on any given thing. Yes, I will worry when worrying is due, but in the mean time, I can enjoy life the way it is.
