Getting more does not assure you will find fulfillment. But try wanting less, and you will find peace of mind.
Once you’re on that road, you will question that decision once in a while when you start comparing yourself with others.
And why do you do that?
Ego. It always wants to know where it stands– its place amongst the crowd.
You cannot know everything about the person you’re comparing yourself with more than you know yourself. So don’t be foolish to wish about trading places.
Instead, adjust the lens and focus on your own path.
Where are you right now?
Where do you intend to go?
How far have you come?
Looking inward, you’ll realize you already have everything you need; your path is your primary business.
And know that freedom is about finding peace and contentment in the here and now. It recognizes that this moment is enough.
You are not living years but a million moments that make up those years. So, if you can find peace and contentment in each of them, you could say your life has been complete.
And that matters.
