gratitude for the day

{photo credits}
True happiness is to enjoy the present,
without anxious dependence upon the future,
not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears
but to rest satisfied with what we have,
which is sufficient, for he that is so wants nothing.
The great blessings of mankind are with us
and within our reach.
A wise man is content with his lot,
whatever it may be,
without wishing for what he was not.
~Lucius Annaeus Seneca~
Happiness comes when your work and words
are of benefit to yourself and others.
~ Buddha~
Happiness is not having what you want,
but wanting what you have.

Whoever is happy will make others happy, too.
~ Mark Twain~

This is really a sweet list. Seems like you are very aware of your blessings and are thankful, it's so good to remember the good things instead of always focusing on hardships. I like that about you, you are a very positive soul.
