I would like to share a quote with you that I recently read:

I prefer joy in the present to riches in the future.

Helen Keller

What a wonderful reminder to remain grounded in the present instead of waiting / wishing for the riches of the future.

I have just finished reading her autobiography titled “The Story of My Life”, which is where I came across this quote. What a remarkable woman she was! Despite being blind and deaf from the age of 19 months (after suffering a terrible illness) she graduated cum laude from university with a BA degree.

She was a fiercely determined woman and filled with a huge love for life and all that the present moment offers us.
