If you look at what you have in life, you’ll always have more. If you look at what you don’t have in life, you’ll never have enough.
~ Oprah Winfrey
These young skunk cabbage were flourishing on a trail near the Museum of Northern Arizona one morning and I was struck by their vitality. There had been no rain and the ground was rocky and barren. Yet there they were.
What they had was enough: sun, air, a quiet place to grow.
I wonder if sometimes I am too focused on what I want and not enough on what I truly need to make life worthwhile.
