Never Enough Sunsets
“This equation has helped many people I know identify the difference between practicing happiness and pursuing it. When my happiness feels elusive, I tend to ask myself, “What am I not being grateful for, and what am I pursuing that’s distracting me from that gratitude?”― Chip Conley, Emotional Equations: Simple Truths for Creating Happiness + Success
Gratitude interrupts scarcity, broadens horizons, expands perspective.
Practice over pursuit.
The daily work of attention and awe, a new math.
Acceptance and joy amidst imperfection, detours and delays.
Transforming ordinary, sometimes difficult days into perfect love, overflowing with abundance.
“So blessed are you who say this did not add up. I had hoped these choices I made. The life I tried so hard to pick would add up to something meaningful. But now I’m left without many choices at all. Left wondering, did I pick? Right. Did I waste my days? What should I have done differently? This limited life is what it means to be human in our failures and bad, bad math, in our best intentions and hardest work, in our waylaid hopes and far off dreams. In the love that is never, ever too late to give or receive. Maybe success and happiness can mean something different now. On the other side of a life changed when minutes become moments and there will never be enough sunsets or handholds or jokes shared. But there is never, ever too much love.” – Kate Bowler
