ASK YOURSELF

Hey Guys,

When I started drafting this post, I was so sure what I wanted to discuss till a friend recommended a song for me to listen to and so I decided to talk about that instead. The song’s about our desire for success and how this desire leads us to unhappiness and discontentment.

 

Foster The People describe, in their song, that in our quest for success we often forget ourselves in our pursuit for more. Rather than appreciating the good we have, we continuously wish and work for better, for more. They then go ahead to ask,

” Is this the life you’ve been waiting for?Or are you hoping that you’ll be where you want with a little more?”

This got me thinking about how ungrateful we are because our intrinsic nature to always want more, how we overwork ourselves to achieve these small successes and never give ourselves a break. Especially in this generation where the idea of constantly working and instant gratification is the name of the game, it’s important to be grateful, to embrace the concept of rest as an important part of the path to success and happiness.

So just take a few minutes to think about whether you’re being the best version of yourself with what you have now and if you’re being grateful for what you have and what you have achieved so far. Are you being intentional to take time off to relax in between successes? Are you losing yourself in the hustle to success? Are you always saying you’ll be better and do better when you get x?

Remember,” God has something great in your future.” Isaiah 43:19

Be Love and Be Light,

Michelle.
