We try to be faster, smarter and stronger. We plan and prepare, strive and reach. We do this in an effort to stay ahead of the ‘game’ and other people. Unfortunately, no one can win or beat life, things happen that are out of our control all the time. However; If we practice gratitude; I believe that we can ride the turbulence of life with grace. And, maybe we’ll actually enjoy the journey.
There’s nothing wrong with trying to be better. Everyone should try to be a little bit better than they were yesterday. We start to run into problems when we place personal achievement at the pinnacle of our lives. When we do this, we end up entitled and discontent with what we have, and; most concerningly; with who we are.
