|In my earlier years, I seemed driven to do and to accomplish all manner of dreams, wanting ever more. One day I realized that what I wanted most I already had. That's the day that I came to understand that "being content" is wanting what you have.
I still like to do and to accomplish but it's tempered by knowing how blessed I am. Now, when a certain need wants to move me, I'll just smile at the stars and enjoy the moment.
You are a wonderful writer, Eileen, always sharing a beautiful combination of words and offering a life-lesson in the mix.

|As the years pass, more and more quickly, I become more and more content with my life, knowing that, as you phrased so well, too much emphasis is placed on mundane matters. Be well and be happy.

How so very true, Sis.

|Dreams are wishful thinking with added oomph. I especially like the way you made the point that it is impossible "trying to / please, what can't be pleased." Therein lies the the true nature of a stress-filled life.|

|Love these sentiments, Eileen. Your words cannot be any truer than this with a grand wisdom that gives inspiration to those in need of sage advice. "The mundane has no lasting virtue" Excellent write as always from you.
