When have you traveled through too many countries? When have you given enough of your time? When have you seen too many sunsets? When have you refined your craft enough? When have you met too many people? When is enough, enough? Maybe never.

That’s okay most people want more of a good thing. We all do. There’s nothing wrong with that, but when we’re not able to appreciate the moment we’re in how could we possibly believe we’re going to be satisfied with an end result somewhere in the future. It’s a vicious cycle. It’s the child at Christmas tearing through gifts so he can get to the next one and tear that open. The adrenaline of opening up multiple gifts and not even noticing what they are is more of a rush than opening one gift and enjoying it for what it is.

Slow down. Look around you. Go within. It’s not a race. You’re not competing with anyone. Focus on what’s important to you and develop that. Enjoy that. Love that. Although it may seem important to have the accolades, the money and the posts in exotic places, in the end all you have is your own life experiences and the relationships you’ve created. Invest in those.
