Santosa, which is the second of the five #niyamas, is being grateful for what we have and content with who we are and where we are in life, being happy with what we have rather than being unhappy about what we don't have.
We always celebrate end results, but it's so important to honor and celebrate the journey that got you there. Like the rest of the world, we are changing from moment to moment. Possessions flow in and out of our lives, people around us come and go, our opinions and even what we think is true changes over time. Accepting that there is a purpose for everything we can cultivate contentment and compassion, for ourselves and for others.
Today, Contentment and Gratitude overflow from my heart. I celebrate this practice, my progress and this very moment.
