We as a collective are so caught up on the next best thing.
What’s the new? what’s the best? what’s the unique? and what’s different?
We want this, that, anything except ‘this’.
We crave for anything other than what we have ourselves.
We’re so accustomed to the comparison of what others have accumulated and what we have not.
We watch the stories and small squares of people’s highlighted lives, searching for a glimpse of something we can attain for ourselves.
This is all so twisted. So draining and manipulative for the mind. We’re training ourselves to pull away from the gratitude that we should feel so deeply for all that we have within and around us in our own beautiful lives.
This can be seen in so many different aspects of our day to day life.
We are not grateful for; our bodies, our people, our homes, our partners, our lives. We fall into a terrible habit of disloyalty to our purpose and our pathway. We choose the next best thing in every single way and lose complete sight of the very best thing that we already have a grasp on. Imagine what would happen if we began mastering how to craft our own gifts instead of hunting for new ones. . .
