the little things that count

A warm fire

A comfortable chair

A cup of tea

A smile from a friend

A wish for a happy future

A book to enjoy

A project to work on

A nourishing meal

A welcome home from a pet

A memory to treasure

A dream for mankind.

When you enjoy the little things of life you are free to dream of the big ones. Unfettered by the need for always more, and the perils of consumerism, this is true freedom.

Enough is enough, in every way.

Today I am grateful for "my daily bread".

From the Dalai Lama: There is a saying in Tibetan that “at the door of the miserable rich man sleeps the contented beggar.” The point of this saying is not that poverty is a virtue, but that happiness does not come from wealth, but from setting limits to one’s desires, and living within those limits with satisfaction.
