Complete the sentence: I would have more peace of mind if____________.
Let me see, should I compile a list?
-If I got out of debt
-If I got a better job
-If I got a boyfriend/partner
-If.. if... if...
No, I'm a realist. I know if all those things happened I would still worry about something! I inherited the worry gene from my mother. I can wake up in the middle of the night and my mind won't turn off! I try to solve the world's problems! I relive all my past mistakes, no matter how small. Then I worry about things that might happen. That's why I'm taking my time reading the book I mention a lot, and the one listed in the sidebar called "The Way Of The Small" by Michael Gellert.
I also don't want to live thinking "I'll be happy if 'this' happens", whatever 'this' is; a new job, new spouse, etc. Too often we live only to reach a certain goal and then once we reach it we need to find something else that we can reach to make us happy.
So the answer is: I would have more peace of mind if I live in the moment and enjoy what I have right now.
