Life is so fucking weird.
We have these aspirations and goals for the future and are excited to build toward them and cross the finish line.
Then, we do, and we aren’t happy? Why is that?
→ It’s because we get satisfaction out of the chase, not the capture.
The scavenger hunt is the exciting thing. Not necessarily collecting all the trinkets for the prize.
We have this idea that we’ll be happy “When…” but that’s not it at all.
It’s “We are happy because…”
Because we are doing this thing, with this person, a part of this team, etc.
That’s how we achieve happier moments, by embracing all that is in front of us and being grateful for it.
When we are happy with what we have we have an abundance of happiness waiting for us at every turn.
