Maybe I’ll start another business. Venture off into things unknown. Create a path to financial freedom. Dare to do what other’s can’t. Take a risk.
Maybe I’ll change jobs. Make good money. Earn great benefits. Meet new people. Enjoy stability.
Maybe I’ll leave it all. Take my family half way across the globe. Start fresh in a new world. Immerse myself in culture. Never look back.
Does it matter? Not really. Who am I kidding anyway. I’ll still end up in the same place: Standing at the fence of life looking over it at the green grass on the other side.
Discontent is like a two headed coin. No matter which way it lands, it still stares you in the face.
They chant “Find your passion” and “Chase your dreams.” They whisper “Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.” Sure, I can do that…….right after catching a shooting star in a can while sliding down a rainbow into the pot of gold held by unicorns.
I can feel the uneasiness in the deep recesses of my soul. Whose “they”anyway. I bet they’ve never succeeded at anything.
What??? Don’t you mean “failed”?
Nope. Success. Victorious. Winner. I’ve succeeded at every task, goal, objective, job I’ve ever attempted.
So now what? Who am I? Who do I want to be when I grow up? What have my past experiences taught me?
Adore my wife. Love my kids. Help people. Mentor and teach others. Make a difference.
Wait a minute. Isn’t that what I already do?
Stop looking at your life through your rose colored lens of discontent. Maybe looking for the things in your life that make you happy, that make you laugh, that make you jump for joy will cause you to spend your two headed coin on the memories you’ve so quickly dismissed and ignored for the sake of progress, for the sake of money, for the sake of “the grass is greener on the other side.”
