We are a society that always wants more. More things. More money. More. More. More.
We aren't satisfied with what we have. It is never enough. Or never good enough.
And yes, striving for more isn't necessarily a bad thing. But when that's the only thing you focus on, you are perpetually unhappy. Because nothing is ever enough.
You get what you want, but then you end up wanting more after that. It's a never-ending cycle of wanting more, not being happy with what you have, and continually trying to get more and more and more.
But when is enough, enough? When do we stop searching for more and just be happy in the moment? When are we happy with what we have?
So many of us, myself included, focus on what we don't have. We can't be happy with where we are in life if we're constantly focused on what we don't have or where we aren't in life.
Life is too short to be unhappy in life. To be unhappy with what you have. With where you are.
So instead, let's make some changes with how we view things. With how we think.
Focus on all the things you have in life. Be thankful for everything you have. Continue to count your blessings, each and every day. When you do that, you end up having more.
And when you're striving for more, don't become so consumed in it that you become unhappy with your progress or where you currently are. Live in the moment. Enjoy the moment. Enjoy the progress.
Stop living for that next moment. For the next big thing. Be happy with where you are and with what you have and you'll always have more. You'll notice things naturally gravitate towards you. And believe me...you want the good things to gravitate to you.
Try it out. Change your thinking and your point of view for the next two weeks. Really focus on what you have, what you're grateful for, and truly be happy with where you are. Relish your progress. Be happy with your progress. It's such a better place to be.
I hope you have a beautiful week. And learn to focus more on what you have.
With love and wellness,
