I began writing this post days ago without thinking about the question. I started writing, and I got to almost 500 words before I realised how wrong my response was. My initial response was that I was unsatisfied with my life and I had to think all the way back to primary school to find one day that I was pleased with myself. That took about 100 words to write. The other 400 words were focused on all the things I need to complete, all the ways I needed to feel and all the mistakes I needed to correct before I could feel satisfied.
Today I came back to complete my post to get back on track with the blog challenge as promised and I just couldn’t continue. So I’m starting over.
The moment I feel most satisfied with my life is right now.
There were days when I would never think I’d be here. And by here I don’t mean alive. I should have gone crazy by now with all the things my eyes had to see and my heart had to endure but I am here. I am sane, I have grown so much and I am so happy. I feel like I spend so much time focusing on all the things that are going wrong that I completely forget to look at all the amazing things happening to me as the years have passed.
I took the time this morning to reflect on all the great things going on in my life. I sat and focused on all those things today and as I go throughout the day, the week, the month, I will try to remind myself that I have to be satisfied.
Normally at the end of my posts I’d ask you for your answer to the question of the day. But today I am telling you that whatever you have right now is enough. It may not all be beautiful right now but a lot of the persons have exactly what you think you need right now and they are far from satisfied. I feel like the first step to being truly happy is to be satisfied. Be satisfied with where you are, who you are and what you have and then work toward getting the other things.
All the best guys.
