We get down about our own story not because it is so bad. No, it’s because others have it so good.
At least, that is what we are telling ourselves.
It’s a first-world problem.
200 years ago, one couldn’t even dream of access to information at our fingertips and resources so abundantly available.
What would a king of old give up to just play with a smartphone for an hour? Or, perhaps, to fly in a plane?
It doesn’t line up.
If we could somehow transport someone from then to now, I think they would be astonished at the marvels we’ve created and disappointed by our outlook.
Human beings struggle to feel happy and content.
Industrialism has trained to believe that we should be content but never satisfied.
There is a better approach:
Why not simply create?
Because when we create, we must share. If we are sharing, we are saying to ourselves and signaling to others, “I have enough.”
When’s the last time you heard someone say they had enough?
We don’t live in a world of scarcity. We live in a world full opportunity. Every day is a chance to change things. Don’t waste it on filling it with more comfort.
