WHERE DID THE SATISFACTION GO?


Where Did Satisfaction Go?
 
 
---The old adage says that there is NOTHING more consistent than change. Change is really the only thing that we can count on. Of course, we do hope that the changes that are happening are in the general direction that we our self is pointing.


---That will next bring up the point that spending all this time in flux cannot help but have us dealing with a certain amount of discomfort. And, since discomfort of some sort seems to be in the mix…now, more than ever, it makes sense that we be more accepting of some of that discomfort.



---It seems that the ‘’job’’ of Madison Avenue was to be sure that we are constantly seeking pleasure while avoiding pain and television seems to routinely punctuate that fact. People never seem to be satisfied…anymore. Technology moving as fast as it does, doesn’t leave folks with any joy for having an item before the next bigger and better version is available. The art of savoring seems to have gone by the wayside.
 
 

---It seems to me that we could ALL do a great favor to ourselves and learn to have (and enjoy) what we already have instead of continually projecting forward to the next big thing that may be looming on the horizon. When we learn to ENJOY things in the present moment we more easily STAY in the present moment. We do ourselves a great service by NOT always projecting away. Be Well.
