How do we end up where we are?
Right at this moment
How did all of our past choices bring us right here to this moment?
Are you where you want to be?
Or maybe not
But does that mean you aren’t exactly where
You are supposed to be?
How is that
When you see others
And the lives they live
Their lives seem so much grander than yours?
Are they really
Or is that just what YOU see?
How do know that they have everything?
So they have a bigger house than you
And maybe they have more things than you do
But… does that mean they are happy?
But how do you know for sure?
You assume that because they have ‘more’
That their lives are somehow better, happier … than yours
You think that because they have more that means you have less
But do you really?
Is it really a life that has been lived … less?
How can that be?
Why do material things scream to us
I HAVE A BETTER LIFE than you
It really doesn’t make sense to assume such things
Yet, on some level … I think we all do it
We think that those people … well, they must have it all
But is that really true?
I can’t say one way or the other
I think deep down
We are all searching for something we don’t have
Because we don’t know what ‘it’ will bring to our lives
Even if we have money
Maybe we are looking for something that is free
To be held
To just be…
I long for the house on the beach with a wrap around porch
But once I have that, then what will I want?
What will I be envious of?
Will I be content?
Probably not … because contentment comes from within, but
I have come full circle, as I always do
Wondering about things
That the universe has already taken care of
The moment I asked for them
So instead of worrying
I think this time…I will just let go and see where I end up.
