Some days I just don't have my head on and feel myself lacking in motivation and interest. For me this can be a symptom of overreaching and forgetting about the wonderful things that are already in my life.
I came across a wonderful entry in The Daily Stoic the other day that really put things into perspective for me: "There are two ways to be wealthy; to get everything you want or to want everything you have. Which is easier right here and right now?" For me this reminded me of a daily practice that radically transformed my perspective...
Plan and simple.
What are you are YOU grateful for? Do you regularly take the time to acknowledge these great things in your life... the things you already possess?
"... freedom isn't secured by filling up on your heart's desires but by removing your desire."
