Let’s start this out with; it’s ok to want. People may feel that it is wrong to want, but to give up wanting is still a want. What happens when this becomes our focus? Wanting a new job because we hate our boss, wanting a bigger house because there is not enough storage for our “stuff”, wanting a new car because we’re tired of the old one. When this becomes our main focus, we stop enjoying what is right in front of us. We forget that at one time everything we currently own, was at one time a want.
So let’s keep this simple:
Small Change #35, relax your need for more.For at least this week, keep your focus on what you do have. When you catch yourself wanting to live in the past, manifest a future, or simply wanting to buy one more “thing”, stop yourself and make a mental list of the beautiful things that surround you right here, right now. And let’s not forget what happened to our dear friend Veruca Salt in Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory.
