…really grateful for the presence and genuine affection of the amazing people in your life?
…while at the same time hiding from the world in embarrassment like Simba from The Lion King eating worms which taste like chicken instead of hunting gazelles or growling amidst the Lion Pride?
While going through a rough patch in life, still being able to feel gratitude for the good things can seem like a miracle. Investing only in miracles or external motivation, though, won’t cut it when you don’t have dead people’s goals.
