All You Need
This morning I retrieved a load of clothes from the dryer which consisted mostly of my dress shirts and took them to my closet. On my way to the laundry room I grabbed a plethora of hangers, however, now that I had the dress shirts, I couldn’t find as many as I needed. Lazily, I didn’t want to walk back to the laundry room, so scavenged the closet for extras but didn’t find enough. Sigh! Back to the laundry room I went but happened to look down at the ironing board and hanging from it were more than enough hangers. I had all I needed, I simply needed to look in the right place.
One of my favorite wisdom proverbs;
“Stop searching for what you think you’re missing. You already have all that you need.“
I was reminded of that quote this morning as I hung up my shirts. We spend so much time trying to find what we think we’re missing, trying to be the people we think we’re supposed to be, searching in vain for purpose, peace and passion. To accept the truth that we have all we need, we simply must see it, is both freeing and allows us to settle within instead of a non-stop search without.
