TFRL is an ongoing series about the journey to The Fully Realized Life.
It’s tempting to want the things you do not have — especially if you’ve suffered significant loss, or fallen short of achieving cherished goals. I’ve found, however, that by focusing on what I already have and wanting that gets me closer to the life I really want. Why should this be so? The other day, I came across an interview on food and lifestyle blog Sous Style with supermodel Kiara Kabukuru, who shared her thoughts on inner and outer beauty, including this gem: “Beliefs are only thoughts we keep thinking; reality is only beliefs we continue to believe.” This has the ring of the mystical about it, but her words also have their corollary in the practical-material world.
