I was romantically involved with a man who questioned would I ever be satisfied.
He would joke about my lack of contentment. Saying that no matter what goals I smashed, or new endeavors I engaged in I wanted more. Leading him to believe that I will also grow tired of our relationship. He made these comments to the point that I began to combat his comments with insults.
On the defense, I began opposing his stagnation and lack of initiative. Am I lacking contentment or are you just way too damn comfortable? Perhaps, you are too comfortable in a job that has no security. Plus, way too comfortable living mediocre. It is safe to say that relationship did not last long. LOL
However, I stand firm in believing that it is quite alright to desire and to have a hunger for more. We are designed to grow, change and to evolve. What is life without actually seeing what you can accomplish, while contributing our gifts to the world? I believe that not being my best self and attaining more would be an insult to my Creator and I’m not ok with that.
I can’t say for sure when I will feel content. I like to think that day will arrive when I know my great, great grandkids are financially and emotionally wealthy. Until that day arrives, I will be setting goals, smashing them and setting up new heights for me to reach.
From a Mom, that desires more…
