It’s taken me a long time, but I am so glad that I’ve finally learned the secret to being happy in life.
It’s to be grateful for each season in its time.
There is always something different to look forward to, to wish for, to hope for.
Always some change we wish would come.
Always a past we yearn to visit once more.
Being grateful in the moment is where the joy is found.
Though life is in a great state of flux right now, I find myself relatively quiet.
Deep contentment is settling on me, as I see that all of the paths that were unsure have led to this very sure moment.
Autumn is always a time of change for me, and this year is no different.
The weather seems to remind me constantly of this.
One day there is rain.
The next, snow.
The next, golden sunshine.
“The joy we feel has little to do with the circumstances of our lives, but everything to do with the focus of our lives.”
-Russell M. Nelson
