A Good Life

"A long life may not be good enough, but a good life is long enough."
~Benjamin Franklin

Such a simple and powerful message. Most of you are so worried about some distant future state of wealth, comfort, love, happiness, or other definition of a "good life", that you fail to recognize that you are living your good life in this moment. Don't get to the end of your life wishing you had realized how good it always was - even when you didn't feel good. Every moment - even the painful ones - have the capacity for goodness. Pause for a moment right now and think of all you are grateful for. And then pause again and go deeper and recognize why yours is a good life at this moment.
