Walking on the desolate coast early on New Year’s Day, my partner and I consolidated our years of esoterics and philosophy learnings, to arrive at a consensus: we don’t need all that much to be happy. It starts with being grateful everyday for what little we have, for the small things, and learning to be content with here and now (even if it is not what we want).
Because we could always have more, we could always have done better, we could always have achieved more, but stripped away the ‘mores’ in life, and what are you left with?
Indeed, he and I both have achieved quite a lot in our lives, but walking here, being out in nature together and opening our hearts to the infinite possibilities, enjoying the peace, we realised that here and now is the best life can be. Life is good.
