Carry on.

Learning to be satisfied.

One of the toughest things that I struggle with is to feel satisfied. Is this a common thing, or is it something personal that I need to overcome?

I remember a scene in star wars, where a young Annakin Skywalker lamented, “I want more. And I know I shouldn’t.”

I look at our life and it’s pretty good. Ok, well, the debt is not so good, and Evelyn works so hard at her job and at home that she doesn’t get enough sleep. But all in all, we have been abundantly blessed with so much.

But like Annakin, I want more out of life. I have dreams. I would love to travel with my wife to far flung places… to see and to touch, not only read and accept that these places actually exist. I would love a detached house of our own with enough rooms for each of my children. I want to be able to afford proper 대권도 classes for my sons. I want to be able to save up for a rainy day without having to get caught off guard due to car repairs.

It’s so tempting to feel sorry for yourself, especially when you see your friends travel, colleagues achieve etc…. But I need to learn to be satisfied – something that Roy told me once way back in highschool. We have it pretty good. I should sit back, relax and realize it.
