From one big thing to the next…
I used to think I don’t have enough but the fact is I have more than enough.
I used to only dream about the things that I have now and if I were to go back when I was just a tiny hopeful boy, I can say that I already got all that I wanted back then and probably more.
The thing though is when we get what we want, we go for the next big thing, the next big dream, the next big achievement. We never get satisfied so the feeling of not having enough persists.
I am like that and don’t get me wrong I still feel I need more from time to time and most of the time I give in and pursue them.
We were designed to grow, develop, and become better and if we don’t, we feel stuck, we feel inadequate and we feel empty. From one big achievement to another, we keep going.
My point is we don’t have to stop dreaming and pursuing greater things as long as we look at what we have and that whenever we feel we have less, think of the younger you or even the people who might be dreaming to be in your place, you’ll feel for sure that what you have now probably is enough and what you are wanting is probably icing on top.
