What if some of the things in this world we think we want aren’t what we really want? We walk into a store with our hearts racing and our thoughts clouded, determined to go buy the thing we think will ultimately make us happy, only to find once we finally hold it in our hands, that the chase was better than the catch. The feeling dies as if someone just poured water on your fire. Did I really want it, when I finally realized that the power to get it was right there?
It doesn’t stop at things you could buy. What about jobs? I’d often think that what if what I believed the ideal job came up. I’d probably jump on it right away. Funny enough, the so-called ideal job popped up in my mailbox. That’s when I realized just how much I really enjoy the job I have and I honestly don’t believe I am going to find any better or more ideal. Aside from doing the things I enjoy, I’m learning new skills and growing. What I had thought in the past was better pales by comparison.
It’s funny to me that I have had all of this power to “do”, and yet I find great joy right where I am and with what I have? Is it possible that I have discovered the secret to contentment?
