Monday Moment: #Blessed

E Gilbert Blessings quote w logo

This piece of inspiration is one that I’ve come back to more than a few times. It’s a wonderful reminder of how many good things are ours for the taking, right at our fingertips, but not without the effort required to fully bring them into our lives. Sometimes, luck seems to be on our side, but often that’s because work has positioned us well for it. Be grateful, but also be accountable, be intentional, and of course, be present.

Monday Moment: #Blessed

E Gilbert Blessings quote w tag

I love this quote, especially coming from a woman who knows a thing or two about chasing dreams, even during moments of (famously documented) aimless wandering. As an approach to living, mindfulness sits at the crossroads of effort and acceptance, which can be a challenging balance to understand. How do we go after our goals in a manner that is both focused and flexible? There’s no question that you have to be engaged in creating your own fulfillment, but when does focused determination become tunnel vision?

A question for another day — it this case, Wednesday. Until then, have a fulfilling week!
