Embracing the Every Day Life
Sometimes in order to appreciate what you have, you must walk away from it for a while. Your every day life, from which you depart whilst on vacation, for instance, is a beautiful thing because it gives you structure, which gives you meaning. And with meaning you can move mountains.
It’s as simple as that.
When life seems meaningless, flavorless, colorless, we make decisions based on that view. When life is vibrant, dashing, magnificent, we choose a different path. But note there is no difference between the two: the world remains the same either way. It is you who has changed.
Change leads to growth. Without resistance you would not move an inch. Think of how you build your muscles. You need resistance against which you can test them ~time and again. So when you are met with resistance, embrace it like the friend it is. It is teaching you to grow stronger, to become a true believer in yourself, your abilities and your life.
We may not always get what we want, but when we live as if what we have is more than enough, then guess what?

Wonderful! I agree – I recently went away on vacation and was able to think about all of the wonderful things about my every day life, as well as ways on how I can improve it. The world barely changes, but our vision of the world can change our life.
