We tend to stretch and adjust our lives as we go along so that we reach our goals, but then inevitably we want more. We’re never satisfied.
Perhaps that’s one of the reasons why we’re never satisfied. We can be satisfied, but that very much depends on us changing our perceptions. We must settle on a different viewpoint, find a different way to think.
We’re never satisfied because our emotions are always in a state of change. There is always another piece of us that wants more and won’t settle for what we see as less, but perhaps that’s where we’re going wrong. We should be okay with what we have and what we achieve.
Perhaps we must also see our goals as a destination, to feel a sense of certainty, achievement, accomplishment, but never to be settled enough not to enjoy the moment, I think is incredibly sad. It’s important to cut our cloth according to what we can achieve.
There will always be something more for us to reach, but it’s important we understand how to balance being content and being grateful with what we already have. That’s the key. Being grounded allows us to understand why we need to continue to stay grounded.
As long as we continue to ground ourselves enough to be okay with what we already have, then it’s okay to want to strive further. It’s easy to focus on the difficulties of trying to achieve a goal, whilst losing sight of being grateful that we have a goal to reach.
