Sustained, ongoing happiness isn’t something that is attainable, nor realistic, anyways. The thing that I believe is attainable, even if we don’t achieve all of our dreams and goals, is contentment.
Remember, without failure, not only have we not learned a valuable lesson, but when success is achieved, it doesn’t taste quite so sweet.
I also wanted to take this time to try and establish some direction to my blog. People often ask me "What is your blog about?" It's a fair question, considering most...
I often feel unsatisfied with my current pay (who isn’t?!), or the house we live in, or a multitude of other trivial things, and I forget to appreciate what’s in front of me, how fortunate I actually am, and appreciating life happening every day.
I try to imagine my life as an 80 year old man, if I’m to survive that long. I try to imagine what that will look like, where I will be, and what I have accomplished.
I try to see the unknown.
I knew that if there were to be a baby kitten somewhere on this particular mountain top it would likely be accompanied by a big Momma kitty with paws the size of my head, so I convinced myself that the noise I was hearing was just the squeaking of a branch in a tree.
It was a blast of a weekend, and in the process I realized how much more fun things are when I’m taking trips and doing activities such as hiking when I’m with the woman I love.
