23 I am.
In a blink of an eye it is.
Oh did I just hear that age is just a matter of figure?
Telling people that regardless of how old you are, it’s what within you reflects your level maturity and state of mind?
And aging doesn’t correlate analogously with personal development?
Is it an appropriate yardstick for judging one’s ability?
I’ve came to realization that it’s because this constant strive for perfection and improvement which leads to a lot of dissatisfactions and unhappiness in our lives.
But in fact that we already have everything we need to be happy, right now and right here.
As cheesy and easy it might sound but we have enough in fact more than enough to be happy in our every day’s life. The power of appreciation in little and simple things in life is truly an ability that each and every one of us should not disregard.
Do we have the ability to appreciate the laughter of our loved ones, the beauty of the sky, of people’s face, of a wonderful sunny morning, of our nature?
Do we have time to step back to, see, feel , touch and listen the sound of our nature – the breeze, rainfall, birds’ chirpings and the smell of fresh-cut greeneries ; taste our food with full gratefulness that it will nourish and replenish our body;
Or instead we strive to fill our bank accounts with imaginary digits as an aptly consumer and consequently being drown into a slave of this faulty monetary system.
We need nicer clothes, bigger house and cars that massage our butt, bigger boobies, bigger muscles, branded and expensive accessories and gadgets to demonstrate our importance and status in the society.
Ask ourselves again, do we really need any of that? We are wholesome because we are able to lead a happy, healthy and fulfilling life!
Upon this realization, this contentment that we have is the greatest gift that will change our life drastically. We no longer compare ourselves to other people and wish to be better.
It frees us from greedy and false temptations.
It frees us from temporarily chase of materials and possessions.
We are now free to do things, not because we want to be better, but because you LOVE it!
Because you’re passionate about it, and it gives you joy.
Because it’s a miracle that you even can do it.
Perfect is who you are, not who someone else says you should be!
I LOVE you, COMPLETELY and UNCONDITIONALLY!
HAPPY 23rd BIRTHDAY!
