Our progress tricks us into always wanting something else to cure our unhappiness. I know this because I feel it and live it every day, as many of us do.
I, too, am guilty of wanting a picture-perfect prosperous future—two dogs, a classy and purposefully minimalist apartment in the perfect area of a snazzy city, and a really awesome electric car.
In fact, I have become so entrenched with figuring out how to become rich using my creative skills that I’ve begun to forget the very goal that fueled my original desire for success.
I wanted to get rich and help others live—at the very least—comfortably and happily.
I’ve forgotten my dream, the original dream, in response to my desire for “the good life.” I’ve forgotten that my life is already beautiful and amazing as it is. My desire for things that I thought would make me feel happier actually made me lose sight of the one thing that really would help me feel happy and fulfilled.
In the same way, humanity thinks it needs to constantly evolve so that maybe someday, old age and sickness will be eradicated from existence. However, our folly isn’t the goal of a life without suffering; it’s our assumption that life can exist without suffering.
Life is beautiful because it is a controlled yet chaotic dance of ups and downs where we are blessed with the ability to sense those pains and pleasures equally.
And that is why we hear phrases like, “It’s all about perception,” or, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Unconditional happiness, compassion, and love are found within this simple truth that a beautiful thing never was, and never will be perfect.
So enjoy your imperfections 🤘 🌟🌟🌟🌟
