"He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has."  ~Epictetus

You can eat a full bowl of potatoes, or a full plate of sirloin steak.
You can hold a full glass of milk, or drink a full goblet of champagne.
You can play in a full toy box, or own a millionaire's full house.
You can enjoy a full retirement, or save a full bank account.
But if your heart is empty, and their are holes in your soul,
you will remain hungry, and always long for something more.


  1. exactly - and people wonder why life feels so empty... well done!

  2. Absolutely Agree!No riches can fill an empty heart,nor heal a broken soul.

    Brilliant words!

  3. Ah, this is profound...how often people try to fill a hole inside with 'stuff', when they've lost track of what really matters in life! Your words are very wise...

    I also very much like the Epictetus quote...definitely words to live by...

  4. AMAZING! I loved such a short yet amazing message...
    Enjoyed this beautiful and crisp piece very much...
    Cheers \m/ ^^

  5. So true Carrie...let us everyday give thanks for a full heart - filled with love and its beauty....Hope you had a beautiful holiday....have to get as much writing in as I can before the next....blessings...bkm
