Another trip round the sun

So another trip around the sun comes to end today.

I’ve had 52 of them and often on a New Year’s eve I reflect about the past year and many times I have planned to make all these amazing changes over the next trip around.

The reality is maybe we can always keep changing or improving or searching for more, however you define improving or better or more, or we can realise that perhaps we are already the person we want to be and perhaps we can be content that we are already living the life we want.

There is always better or worse in the future, but it never happens because the future is an imaginary thing inside our own minds.

Life is now. Enjoy what you already have, don’t let’s be anxious about what might be.

Every high

Every high has a corresponding low, it is the balance in life.

We spend so much energy, time, money and sacrifice to get ever greater highs. Now at whatever the cost, it’s got to be bigger.

Yet we wonder why we are the most discontented the human race has ever been. We chase rather than appreciate.

Bigger isn’t better.
