Have you ever noticed no matter how far you get or how many things you have, you’ll always want more? Well, we’re here to express that you should value what you have as much as you value what you are chasing. It is an ongoing cycle that will never end unless you quit chasing what you don’t have and appreciate everything you do.
This brings us to our quote of the day!
“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.”- Epicurus
When we spoke about this, there were many insightful takes on it.
When you chase things in life whether it is material things, money, or goals, it is easy to lose sight of what you’ve already garnered and experienced. You will never be truly happy if you are always chasing what is next. Nevertheless, it is important to want more for yourself, but it is even more important to appreciate how far you’ve come and what you do have. There will always be things you don’t have, be happy with what is yours!
You don’t know what you have until you lose it.
Wanting more is normal but it is important to be grateful for what you have. No matter how bad you think you are doing, there is always someone worse off than you are. This shouldn’t take away from what you want but add to the appreciation of you getting what you want.
Live your life appreciating what you have and you will be that much happier! Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday and feel free to share this article with any loved ones who may be taking their lives for granted! Subscribe to our weekly newsletter here!
