We had Playschool on for a while this morning and I was delighted to overhear them reading a book encouraging children to be happy with what they have.
It went along the lines of:
If you got that thing little bear would you be happy then?
No because I still wouldn’t have xyz
Ok, so if you got xyz, would you be happy then little bear ?
No because if I had xyz I would need abc…
Then I think you need to be happy with what you have then little bear.
I think we can all learn something from Playschool today, despite my terrible recall of the actual story 🙂
Decide to be happy now. Decide that what you have is enough.
I want things but I don’t need them. I’m not unhappy that I don’t have them because I am always happy with my life.
Yes I complain and whinge about my gorgeously precocious children and stubborn husband but I would never change a thing. These are the happiest years of my life and when I’m old my memories of this time are going to be filled with love, smiling faces and sunshine.
