That is a lovely photo.

I have had to learn to be happy with what I have. Not that it's bad, it's just not everything I want. But spending energy obsessing about what's not meant to be at this moment was making me very unhappy.

A radiant photo...the light is heavenly! Yes indeed, I'd say you're still pretty fortunate to live in such a beautiful place. All the houses (and swimming pools) in the world can't take away that lovely light--the way it washes over the ridges and valleys and makes you want to shout "Hallelujah!"
