Word For The Day…

From Gratefulness

I love this simple but powerful message…

Even Socrates, who lived a very frugal and simple life, loved to go to the market. When his students asked about this, he replied, “I love to go and see all the things I am happy without.”

  1. Oh man, I am not a wise person. I like to go to the market to see what’s out there. I love vintage stuff. At least, I can give myself the excuse I am helping by recycling so they don’t throw it into the landfill.

  2. Whenever I go to the grocery store, I feel a small thrill at seeing the abundance before my eyes. I can buy virtually any food I wish even though my needs are fewer as I age. It is a feeling of sheer gratitude.
