I’ve been struggling for a while now between working at a certain dream and letting go…
Neither one is easy, I must say.
Recently, a loss that one of my friends had helped me put things into perspective: what I had been complaining about is not such a big deal after all. People had told me this before, but this thought was never mine until I felt it.
Moreover, I was just wondering: how would my life be different if a particular dream came true? How would this day be any more special?
The answer: basically, not much! I would wake up at the same time, do the things I do now (which I choose to do, by the way), my work, hobbies and friends would be the same. So why does my mind keep focusing on the missing water from my glass? It’s not even half empty! Actually, most of it is full.
I guess it’s the flavor of the water and not the quantity per se.
But flavor is nothing than the PERCEPTION of the taster!…
