Always Searching (#329)

On this wonderful journey through life, I feel myself searching for more. Searching, looking for the next opportunity or thing that may bring me happiness.

I’m starting to learn that I don’t have to.

The best the Universe has to offer me has been right in front of me the whole time. It is with gratitude I feel this to be true. Nothing is as sweet or as fulfilling as the present moment. Nothing can take away from the power of right now.

So if you find yourself searching like me, stop and remember your breath. Use gratitude to tie you to this moment and let the rest figure itself out.
