I need you to understand something. I wrote this for you. I wrote this for you and only you. Everyone else who reads it, doesn’t get it. They may think they get it, but they don’t. This is the sign you’ve been looking for. You were meant to read these words.
You're right. I am.
I'm so full of plans that I don't have time to carry any of them out.
Scratch that, I'm just full of it. Period.
Aren't we all.
So completely true. How do I stop?
So right.All I can do is focus on the things I can't have and don't appreciate the things I do have.
Am I ungrateful? Or is it human nature?
A lot of the time what I write here is advice I try to give myself (sometimes I even listen). So either we're both ungrateful or it's human nature. I'm hoping it's human nature which means we just have to remind ourselves and be aware of it sometimes.
Even if we appreciate what's there, is it really there? Nothing lasts forever, or does it?
that's what i needed to hear after the mess that was today. thank you for reminding me (and yourself), as always.
Well said. "Man does not live in the abundance of his posessions"... or his unfulfilled desires. Contentment is great gain.
I focus so much on what I don't have, what I can't do, because I honestly cannot think of anything I am good at.
You're good at focusing, Dahling!
Because the grass always look greener on the other side. I am still learning to appreciate things that I have around me rather than complaining all the time.
I wonder how many times I'll have to see this before it finally sinks in. I've had 19 Thanksgivings, but the message keeps being forgotten.
I think, today, I'll write several "thank you" notes to my friends and acquaintances.
Tomorrow I'll be back to the same old same old, of course. My guess is, we're born wanting. It's just comforting to want.
