How to Find the Sweet Life

Most of us spend a lot of time looking for the “sweet spot” in life. If you often feel a sense of “restlessness,” …. maybe you’re searching for it right now.

How to find the sweet life

Looking back in my life, there are times when I wanted to be anywhere other than where I was in that moment:

  • I couldn’t wait to leave high school and head off to college;
  • I longed for a cool job as my college days waned;
  • I pined for a soul-mate during my days of living as a single girl;
  • I walked around my rented home desiring a home of my own;
  • I wished to find a moment of peace with active toddlers underfoot.

My guess is that you know exactly what I mean here. Maybe you, too, feel … unsettled.

Time moves forward and life’s precious moments never stand still. They flow on like the waters of a mountain stream rushing to oceans elsewhere.

I sit here on a rusting patio chair writing with a longing in my heart for something that is yet to be. A painful burden of restlessness weighs heavy on me. I feel … unsettled.

Suddenly, a soft June breeze lifts up the sweetest scent of nearby gardenia blooms. A kiss of sweetness.

A reminder of the Sweet Life … which I realize is right here, right now, in the present moment.

And the moment is rushing by me.

How to find the Sweet Life?  It’s so simple, we can miss it.

Just look up, sweet friend. Look up and breathe life’s sweetness. It’s all around you.

How to find the Sweet Life? It’s so simple, we can miss it.
