We are always trying to improve

We bought into the idea that there is something inherently wrong with us and we are always on the path of getting better, improving and gaining.

Where did this idea come from?
Who decided that we must always be no the improvement ladder?
When can we rest and stop improving to simply enjoy the moment of where we are at?
What is wrong with the idea of constantly striving to improve oneself?

In my opinion, I have had to learn how to be completely and truly happy in the moment that I am living, from that place off acceptance and self-love, amazing things start to happen in life. It is like life can sense you are happy with the status quo and so, life starts showering you with more abundance, because you are you are being one with your moment, one with NOW.

No doubt we are always going to grow and reach higher grounds, but the idea is that let us not forget to be grateful to what the Now moment presents us with. There is so much to be thankful for.
Today:
I am grateful to have woken up and I got to greet another day.
I am grateful to the coffee I got to enjoy with my love.
I am grateful to have spoken to my father, who is healthy and happy.
I am grateful that my sister called me today and she was in a good mood.
I am grateful I have a computer I can work off of.
I am grateful for the meal I cooked for my love and myself.
I am grateful to the piece of organic chocolate I got to enjoy after lunch.
I am grateful for feeling that my heart is full.
I am grateful for my breath.
I am grateful for the my fingers for typing so fast.
I am grateful for my mind and how resilience is it, especially in these times.
I am grateful for the cuddle my love and I got to enjoy mid day today.
I am grateful to be part of this human experience.
I am grateful for being curious and inquisitive about my own being.
I am grateful that I harbour no ill will towards anybody in my life.
I am grateful to be alive.

You see there is so much we can be thankful for.

What are you thankful for today?
When was the last time you just accepted what life has presented you with, good or bad?
