Life sometimes can get very complicated. There is always more and more. The more you strive to make your life complete, the more you find it is not complete. It is a common thing in our society today, that living in a luxury life is a dream of almost everyone.We want to be the best of the best. We want to own a luxury and powerful car, live in a big and sophisticated house... own and have all the best things in life. We work harder and harder, but it doesn't seem to be enough. Instead we get more stressed up. The more we accumulate, the more stress and unsatisfied we are. The race will never ends.
Why? The more we have in life, the prouder we become. When we find someone else have more than we do, we become envious. We worked harder to be on top of others. We dream of the life which do not belong to us. We tend to forget what we have. We become judgemental ; we feel others are racing against us. They want to be on the top too. Our expectation is high. The people on top will be respectable. We have to be there, we must have all that whatever it takes. Life has become a race, stressful, and tiring. And when we don't get what we want, we become really frustrated.
On the other hand, if we let go all these, and accept whoever we are, be grateful with what we have, appreciate our surroundings, enjoy our life every moment, life can be very beautiful as it is.
Simplify your life, focus on the now, rather than worrying about the future, or living in the past. Be grateful with what you have today and enjoy every bit of it as it is the most beautiful gift you ever received.
