My Life is a Delicate Dance




How can I enjoy what I want if I can’t enjoy what I have? Now, this is a sobering question. Can I ever be satisfied or content? My world is rich with opportunity. I am not a refugee fleeing from war; my country is not under physical attack. I don’t suffer from hunger or physical afflictions. (Well, if you don’t count getting much older.) Yet how can I enjoy what I want if I cannot be satisfied with what I have?

 

I need to appreciate what I have more. It’s not everything I want but what I have is pretty darn comfortable. I should look around me to see all the things that give me small joys: the soft fur of my dog, a kind word from a friend, my eyesight, and hearing.

 

I need to look for the beauty in the here and now. I find it easy to overlook the things that excited me long ago. What a privilege it is to be able to drive, yet do I let myself be enamored by it? Probably not. Do I take for granted the taste and pleasure of a hot or cool drink in the moment? What would it be like if the nuisance of my Corgi’s barking was silenced by her not being here? Ouch!

 

What if I could only have what I have now? How can I live in the present and find joy? Please don’t get me wrong; I love to look to the future with hopes and dreams. I want life to get better and continue to create great things for myself and others.

 

How do I let go of what I don’t have and truly enjoy what I do have?

 

My life is a delicate dance between desire and satisfaction. 

I can reach for the stars while appreciating the ground beneath my feet. Satisfaction isn’t always about grand achievements; it’s often found in small, everyday moments.

 

How about you? Is there a balance between what you have and what you desire?

 

Watch for the blind spots.

This is really the question of our lifetime. How much is enough. We are trained by our culture to always want/need more, that what we have is lacking. Great blog. Thanks!
