“Don’t set your heart on so many things.”
—Epictetus, ancient Greek Philosopher
Our hearts can be a bit like our hands — they can only grasp and hold so much.
The media keeps telling us the lie, “You Can Have it All!”
Many who pursue the never-ending journey of MORE eventually consume their lives in a frantic race, rarely feeling extended periods of satisfaction, contentment, and peace of mind.
I love the idea that the best things in life are not things. Traveling lighter with what fills our hearts and nurtures our souls seems far wiser council.
If your heart is a bit heavy these days or if what you have is not fully satisfying, try a bit of physical, mental, and emotional uncluttering. Please reply to this post to let me know what you discover about your heart’s true desires.
