I want more of less. I want more quiet. I want more alone time. I want more creative abilities. I want more motivation. But do y'all see the problem here? I'm still wanting more of something instead of being happy with what I have been given.
No matter what it is, it seems it is not what I want so I want more of the things I want without being as appreciative as I should of the things I have been given. How's that for wordy? Goodness.
When do I arrive at the place where I appreciate the quiet times I have as well as the not so quiet ones? When do I become ever so thankful for what creative abilities I do have and stop wanting better or more? When do I become happy with what I have without wanting more?
When does that time come when more is not even a thought because satisfaction with the gifts we have are quite enough?
It's not that I believe wanting more is a bad thing but, when we forget to appreciate the things, people, abilities, etc that we do have, wanting more seems rather silly. (My 5 minutes stopped here)
I get it. I see the better out there. I see the more out there. And I believe we somehow learn it at a very early age- do more, get more, be more... How do we draw the line between wanting more just because it seems bigger or better or the people seem happier and realizing what we have is enough for us?
Perhaps seeing the value in what we do have, the fact that these things and people are gifts will help with drawing that line and being happy right where we are and show future generations that happiness doesn't necessarily lie in having more.
I'm a day late. This is becoming a habit, y'all. This post is linked to Five Minute Friday. The prompt this week is MORE.
