We often feel like we should be doing more, or doing differently, or doing better. We want to be somewhere else, in a different place, or we want this place to be somehow different than it is. We plan ahead, we reminisce, we worry, we procrastinate, we mourn, we envy, we fantasize.
Frustration always felt to me like a sign I was on the wrong path. Now it is an indication of growth — of new mental pathways being formed. When I wake up tomorrow, I’m a little better at handling the things that I would have struggled with yesterday.
