“What sucks the joy out of our everyday lives is our notion of how life is supposed to be.” So begins an insightful tome that came across my feed this week.
“We tell ourselves that we’ll be happier when we’re richer, skinnier, more admired, more successful, more loved. And we constantly reject the present moment and postpone our lives. Perhaps we should stop insisting that our lives be a certain way and instead embrace it the way it is right now.”
Makes sense to me.
All that remains is to figure out how to ignore the noise and do it.
