I realised today that I am never completely happy or content with any aspect of my life; I'm always hunting for more. And that seems crazy to me because I am so fortunate to lead the life I'm in. Everything about it at this point in time is just fine and I am extremely blessed. But there is that little piece inside of me that looks for something further. That doesn't necessarily have to be about not appreciating what you already have because I of most people think about everything I have to lose in every day that I live... But why should that make me want more?
If I achieved exactly what I wanted every time I craved for something, then maybe I would learn myself a lesson of self value. Realising that I do deserve the utmost best and that my wants CAN be fulfilled because just like everybody else, I deserve to attain them. It's just the voice inside our heads that tell us that we can't, for this reason or another. The little voice that would rather sit at where you are at instead of get up and do that thing you think about doing.
What are the reasons behind these two voices? Which part of my brain is in control of which? My wants and daydreams surely must stem from watching other people in so-called 'amazing' fulfilled achievements (true love, dream job, amazing house, flawless lifestyle)... The bits you only see from the outsiders point of view. But the resistance to move and believe in yourself to get what they have is the reality check. The part of you that has to second think what getting to that special place really means: how hard you would actually find capturing that secret desire.
But which side should you listen to? Being a reckless dream catcher could surely backfire countless times when you cannot always get what you want, but refusing to try can leave you always falling behind and never moving ahead in your life.
Love and hugs,
