“It is very important to be aware of not only what is not going well in us, but also what is going well. In every moment, there are many things that we can appreciate and enjoy, things that nourish our happiness. There are the blue sky, the white clouds, the sunshine, the solid earth beneath our feet. There are the birds singing, the trees, the presence of our loved ones, the fact that we still have food to eat, and the fact that we are still alive. Life is a miracle, and being aware of simply this can already make us very happy.
– Thich Nhat Hanh, “Savor – mindful eating, mindful life”
