There are a lot of things I want

There are a lot of things I want. But when I'm in the middle of a difficult yoga pose and my body is stretching and strengthening and breathing, I remember I have everything I want the most already.

There are a lot of things I would like to buy. But when I'm in the middle of a line of a song and I know I've just captured a moment so beautiful and honest, and because it's recorded I'm going to get to share it with my world, I remember I have everything I want the most already.

There are things I wish I had. But when my child sees me enter the room and I can see them physically excited to be with me, I remember I have everything I want the most already.

There are things I wish I could have. But when my wife and I lock eyes and share an understanding which is so far beyond words but can only be formed over 18 years of life together, I remember I have everything I want the most already.
