What is a Great Life?
That is a fairly loaded question on many levels. I know for myself it definitely as changed over the years. I remember many times looking around and thinking, Wow I wish I could have it together like she does, or maybe if I ever have that much money I to would find life that much easier.
One of the wisest things my Dad use to tell me was “Heather if you have your health you have everything” and “ Find out what you love and then find a way to make money at it.” Depending on where I was in my life when he would so graciously mention these things, would dictate my thoughts or reactions.
I know as I have grown older I have come to appreciate how true those words are. The last three years of my life I have grown to find much freedom and acceptance within myself. I have always had passion in my life no matter the life circumstances I was in. However the last three years have enabled me to take it to a whole new level.
So today, what is a great life? Being able to look in the mirror and be happy with the person looking back at me. Making time for friends and family. Taking the time to enjoy that cup of tea in the quiet moments of the morning. I really believe it all comes down to our thoughts, attitudes and actions. We can choose to be happy right where we are, making the best of the people and places in our life.
So I leave you with these two photos from this past week end. Our daughters sweet friend Emma had a birthday, so in Chapplain family style we baked a cake and had some tea. If you could describe for me with one word, what is a great life? Leave it in the comments below, Ta Ta for now.
