Are you content with your life or are you still searching for something more? I ask this because people always ask me what I want to do next. When you are living on a timeline, which we all are by the way, it seems more important to never settle with where you are. I try to cram as much life and memory making events as I can sooner than later.
That attitude has taken me to Italy, Mexico, California, Disney World, and North Carolina in less than two years, and I will soon go to Chicago and Washington DC. Those are the big things but I also attend all my kids school and athletic events. One thing I am constantly reminded of is to live life and lead an adventurous life. Complacency can never set in.
What about searching for missing elements in your life? Maybe it’s happiness or love. Some people I meet have so much and are the most unhappy least grateful people I have ever met. Yet others I meet have very little and are the happiest people I have ever met. I often wonder why that is. I am sure there are many reasons but many times it centers around the individuals themselves. How can you spread love and joy when you are so unhappy with yourself?
I have been so blessed to have so many wonderful people enter my life. I’ve had emotions that I felt were extinguishing only to have the least likely individual light that fire again. But I may have never seen or accepted it if I hadn’t continually been searching for more. If complacency or contentment had overtaken me I think many of life’s blessing would have flown by unnoticed.
As I told my son recently “never settle for less in life.” The minute you stop dreaming and settle for less in life is when you stop living. I have so much and so many blessings but I still haven’t found what I’m looking for. That won’t be complete until eternal life kicks in!
