Many of us wait our whole lives for something more: a more important job, a nicer car, better vacations, 2.2 kids and a house with a white picket fence, a different spouse, skinnier thighs, more hair… we’ve all heard the story. For me, the times when I finally got the greener grass turned out to be something I rarely even wanted or needed- I just thought I did because someone else thought it was greater than sliced bread.
And what is so great about the other side when fewer and fewer folks are really appreciating anything that they have anyway? Good question, right? BUT, if I can remember that thoughts are just things (and I’m the one giving these thoughts their meanings), then the only thing between me and greener pastures is me.
What are we waiting for?? Whether or not it’s within our grasp in this moment isn’t important. Most things in life are impermanent. Appreciate it all right now. 🙂
