YES! It is a balance between striving to become a better version of yourself and appreciating/being grateful for who you are and what you have NOW! . So often we spend our precious energy dwelling on our past or worrying about the future neither of which we can control. . I live by these two mantra's..."There are no mistakes only lessons" and "Everything happens for a reason". . What is a mantra/affirmation that helps you stay in a place of gratitude?
