My mom asked me last evening how I am dealing with the autumn allergies. To which I replied, I do not have frequent allergies anymore. I also do not suffer from severe headaches, dizzy spells, serious heart burns nor long coughing fits. All these thanks to the ten peaceful years living here and learning how to really take care of myself.
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 greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it may be, without wishing for what he has not.
