I reflect often on a speech given by Sean Stephenson this past September 2016 at Personal Growth Summit. When he is asked what is your favorite animal, he replies: Humans. He said we truly are remarkable and yet we are funny individuals.
We get frustrated when something we buy isn't full to the brim because we don't feel we got our monies worth. But we also get frustrated when we open it up and it spills everywhere.
We feel we are stifled as teenagers that we don't get to do the things we want to do and feel we have a right to do. Yet, when we get the opportunity to do these things as adults and get these "rights", we let them control our lives, ruin relationships, and then they create chaos and wreck havoc on our lives when we don't keep them in balance.
When we don't have money we want it. When we have money we don't appreciate it or aren't grateful for it. This really goes for anything. What we don't have we want. What we have we don't want.
We say we believe love never fails. Yet we live most of our lives doubting in love, shoving away love and looking for love to fail us.
