"You are so full of the things that you don't have
that you don't have space for the things you do."
Its so absolutely true. We want. All the time.
And we aren't even satisfied when we have it.
We look towards the next thing.
The first time I really noticed this was a few years ago. I had a friend that wanted a certain car. He researched and obsessed over this car-to-be for so long. And then he finally got it. He was really excited...for like three months. And then one afternoon he starts talking about his next car -pining and obsessing and researching. Never satisfied.
We do it with our clothes. We do it with our homes - wanting and dreaming until we're there - we have it. And then we start talking about the next home.
I especially do it with shoes. I think I like the hunt. Once they're mine I love with them... for a short time. And then I start the hunt over again.
How have we learned to be so un-content?
