“We must wake up to the marvelous reality of life.
We must begin to live fully and truly, every moment of our daily lives.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh, You Are Here
I think this is something we all hope to experience, to be and do – living fully every day.
I’m getting there more and more and more…
But, I think it’s required me to let go of more and more and more… anguish, guilt, frustration, anger, disappointments, holding on to things so trivial that end up taking up way too much space.
The more I practice forgiveness and choose love instead, the more I find an inner happiness building solid grounding.

It comes from inside, feeling good about what we’re doing without expectations, and is not dependent on what is happening around us.
Letting go of the fruits of our efforts leads to trusting more, being more, and living more fully.
