“I observe that many people seek happiness “out there”. They imagine it will come to them if they get a raise, a new car, a new lover, or something else they want but do not have. My own experience, repeated many times, is that the actual reward of getting and having, is usually much less than the one imagined.” Dr. Andrew Weil
Have you ever experienced any of these situations:
- You’re walking down the aisle at your wedding, and a family member jokes in their wedding speech, “When is the baby coming?”
- You give birth to your first child, and 3 months later, someone asks you, “When is baby #2 coming?”
- You give birth to baby #2, and 3 months later, someone asks you, “When is baby #3 coming?”
- You got a 9/10 and someone asked you where the other 1 percent went.
- You wait for something to happen. Something great happens, and the next day, it’s already old news. Onto the next. More expectations to perform other great things.
So my question to you is, “When is it ever good enough?”
