Reaching For "More"
Wednesday, May 08, 2013
Inspirational stories can mean a lot when you're ready for them. Settle in, if you're ready, and read the story above.
It reminded me of some of the plain determination I had when I started here on Spark. I wasn't inspired. It wasn't magic. No fairy guided me. I just DID it. The excitement came later. But novelty comes and goes. Rewards change.
I remember again that I always reach for more. I like more. More things. I used to like having more supplies ( backups of necessities, because I was afraid of running out, or not having the means to get more when I really needed them- I shed that, and work on it, both.) I like more of a good thing, rewarding for most people. But sometimes good things are only good because they are fleeting. Or they're good when they're enjoyed, not overlooked while searching out more of it.
From the end of the article-- I felt this way for many years. You can read it in my intro. More sunsets, more energy, more LIFE in my life. LAtely I've been reaching for more of what doesn't truly satisfy me- unhealthy foods, candy without moderation at work, at home... More and more work that is less and less finished, leaving an emptiness of accomplishment. This is not the more I want. I've been reaching for the wrong things. I'm not bad, just temporarily misguided.
And now I've reset my sights on my "more".
