Are you frustrated by life? Do you wish other folks were less annoying, rude, obnoxious or disappointing? Do you spend time dreaming about being somewhere else other than where you are right now? Do you wish at times you were someone else?
If so, you are FAR from alone! In fact feeling malcontent is such a prevalent feeling that our American marketing system preys on our tendency to wish and want for more than we have and need! The more we get the more we want… we are never truly satisfied with what we have. The cycle goes on and on… so we often feel irritable, frustrated and depressed due to our perceived lack. “If only things were different!” we lament “Then I would feel okay!”
Yet, we set ourselves up for disappointment and frustration when we expect too much from others or even ourselves. We define how things need to be before we are okay… but the dream can never be obtained!
Focusing on things other than as they are keeps us from appreciating the good things we DO have! By continuing to focus on what we wish we had we are blocked from enjoying all the blessings we have in the Here and Now! Looking at every person and in every situation for the positive and the good will bring with it more satisfaction and peace! Peace often comes from letting go of all of our expectations and by truly appreciating what is.
