But what do we already HAVE?

My previous post was about goals (you can read it here) and how they scare me. When I was talking to a friend of mine who happens to be a yoga teacher she was telling me that she had been talking about something similar in her yoga classes all week.

She was saying that we’re always being asked things like “What do you want out of life?” Or “What do you need?”

But why aren’t we ever asked about what we already have?

Needless to say, she blew my mind. Why can it be so hard to focus on what’s right in front of us? We’re constantly being told to reach higher and extend beyond our grasp… which is good, don’t get me wrong. It’s good to set goals and attain them – to push yourself out of your comfort zone and beyond boundaries you’ve made for yourself – but are we doing this too much?

At what point do we stop and look around to relish in what we have already created?

As with everything, I guess there needs to be a balance. You can’t just be satisfied with where you are today for the next five months. But are too many of us neglecting to appreciate what is in our presence and what we already have attained?

What do you think? How often do you actually appreciate what you already have instead of wishing for something else? How often do you start a sentence with “I’m happy about X” verse “I WISH I had…”

Let me know!
