It seems like a lot of the people I talk to lately are in one of two places: livin’ the dream or wishing they were dreaming. Lots of activity on the two far ends of the emotional spectrum. Maybe this is just my crowd, and things are pretty steady with you right now. In case, however, you happen to be one of those folks who could use a little reminder that happiness has not abandoned you, this quote’s for you. Even if life is exceeding your expectations right now, tuck this one away. As mindfulness teaches us, everything is temporary. Joy is never far, though, sometimes served up in big, delicious spoonfuls, and sometimes in moments so tiny you’d miss them if you blinked. All the more reason to be paying attention, and of course, to keep knocking.
