I have often thought of everything compared to nothing or none. If I had everything, all the money, all the fame and all the respect, would I then have it all or would I still have none of it? I have worked at hourly jobs and salaried jobs, have made minimum wage and significantly more. The one thing that hasn’t changed is the feeling of having none, nothing.
Material items can make you smile on the outside but it didn’t change how I felt on the inside. What is that saying…if you put lipstick on a pig it’s still a pig. Not saying I am a pig but it’s that same concept. Items can mask your true thoughts and feelings. It leaves you with a feeling on none, empty or having nothing. Have you ever looked around and just saw stuff but that stuff no longer brings you any joy?
The feeling of “what the heck am I doing with all this crap”. Getting back to basics is what I crave. Maybe nature, simplicity and having abundance of joy and not abundance of stuff.
Maybe during this journey I can refocus my energy on having enough. More than none/nothing but less than abundance.
I think that will be my goal!
