Being Satisfied...

It is my belief that in order to move forward, I need to be satisfied with where you are in life. While I also believe that there has to be a desire to set and achieve goals, I can't let not achieving my goals (at all, or quickly enough) ruin my life.

This is the revelation I've had recently, because I used to get so down when my goals looked so far away. When I spend my life thinking only about where I want to be, I don't appreciate where I am. I'm in a pretty damned good spot right now and I need to acknowledge that.

Not telling you how to live your life, but this was a game changer for me. Always looking for the next job (still kinda am), waiting to pay off that debt or meet that savings goal to buy a house, car, or whatever... now I'm just starting to settle in where I am, and hunt for change in very few areas that provide the most impact.
