47-52-2011: Barriers

What barriers get in your way? In many cases I bet they aren’t as significant as you think.

So many of us take the most basic things for granted. We lose sight of the simple luxuries that we have in our endless quest to acquire more money, more stuff, more experiences. Step back for a moment and take in the wonder of everything from rain falling out of the sky, to the way our joint articulate. Remember to appreciate the simple things, the overlooked things, and the important things – health, feelings, laughter, love, family, friendship. Usually those intangibles are far more significant.

If you don’t get everything you want, think of the things you don’t get that you don’t want.  ~Oscar Wilde
