Happy Black Girl Day - Are You Standing Knee Deep in a River and Dying of Thirst?


I can't even believe it's the middle of July, can you?  The days and weeks seem to go by so quickly.  In the midst of everything that's going on, it's easy to overlook the miracles that happen in our lives everyday.  We are only as happy as we choose to be.  Of course, everything that happens in our lives is not going to bring us happiness.  So, we must keep our faith and hope alive through hard times by focusing on all the good that still surrounds us.  The following excerpt from Simple Abundance reminded me this morning to not take anything for granted:
"The revelation that we have everything we need in life to make us happy but simply lack the conscious awareness to appreciate it can be as refeshing as lemonade on a hot afternoon.  Or it can be as startling as cold water being thrown in your face.  How many of us go through our days parched and empty, thirsting after happiness, when we're really standing knee-deep in the river of abundance?  Yet, make no mistake about it.  The Universe will get our attention one way or the other - with a sip or a splash.  Let's choose today to quench our thirst for "the good life" we think others lead by acknowleding the good that already exists in our own lives.  We can then offer the Universe the gift of our grateful hearts."

I so needed to read this post right now. Currently in the state of mind where it seems everything is crashing down around me. Though I don't have the life I want, or career I think I deserve, I have all the things I need to live another day.

Thank you for reminding me!
