1. There’s the kind of person who is satisfied for the most part, but can err on the side of being too complacent because of contentment.
2. There’s the kind of person who is always working to keep things fresh, but has a proclivity to be dissatisfied.
The Solution for Number 2
Happiness is not about getting what you want; it’s about wanting what you have. Doing more does not always lead to more satisfaction. Satisfaction comes from noticing things, appreciating things for how they are, and living in the moment.
Why? Because there’s always that next thing that you feel is going to be the ticket to your joy, when in reality, once you get it, you will be yet again looking for the next thing. And the next. Your addiction is in longing. People who are addicted to the longing can’t enjoy the moment. They hang onto past loves, or what if’s, because the possibility of something is somehow more satisfying than the realityof it. You’re the kind of person who accomplishes goals and doesn’t take a moment to savor it because you’re onto the next goal. Break this cycle by first understanding you are going through it.
