Do you ever look at your life and think.. I want more. You know there is no reason for your dissatisfaction, and that life is indeed good, but…
You want more money.
You want a different job.
You want to be a stay at home mother.
You definitely do not want to be a stay at home mother.
You are so bored.
You are too busy.
You would like more children.
You are not coping with the children you have.
You wish you were married.
You wonder why you got married.
You blog but it’s not enough.
You are writing but it’s not coming together properly.
Your children are wild.
Your children are too quiet.
Yes there are times when I look over my shoulder and I see a world of people who are what I wish to be.
And then I look around me, at my family, my friends and my life and I see that to others perhaps I am that person they are wishing to be. And I do indeed have it all.
Well perhaps not all but enough for me.

Haha this I so true for all of us!
I know sometimes I feel like such a bitch. I wish for the heavens and then when I come to my senses I see how lucky I am.
Still it would be nice to have more money etc etc!
Love it! You are so right. Everything we want we already have.
Thank you.Yes we do have it all, but we can’t always see it, and we definitely don’t always feel it. 🙂
🙂 You do indeed, Tric.
Far away hills are green sometimes Jackie.
i so love this and agree with it, tric. i am very happy for my life and all of those who are a part of it. )
But I bet sometimes…..
It is good to be that bit mature in years and for us to be able to say we are happy (mostly).
There is truly a point at which “enough is enough.” And often, less that that point is ample. Good post!
Yes Eric agreed, but it takes some time and I think experience of life, for us to realise that. Thanks Eric
Hi Tric, your post made me think of how my father used to say when we would be at odds with our lives: ‘Would you throw your lot into the pile and take someone else’s bag of life?’ Generally, we said a definite NO.
I read your comment this morning and I smiled. What a lovely expression, and it would certainly make you come to your senses. Your Dad was wise.
Excellent post and so true, MM
Actually I’ve often felt like this. Have I made the right choices? Am I leading the right lift for me? Sometimes I feel like I want to change something though not sure what, though the feeling normally passes and a few days later I feel happy with everything again. So I can relate to your post 🙂
Yes I do think this is common to us all, and it is something we pull out of.
Perhaps it is not always a bad thing as it may give us a push to make some changes.
Yes. And beautifully so.
Oh yes,the grass is always greener!Im very guilty of this.Such a hard human folly to shake off!
Ah sure where would we be without a bit of envy in our lives!
I’m still reading, my friend…but for some reason I can’t get the “like” button to work on your blog. Works fine on other ones, but yours – NADA!
I checked it (by liking my own post!) and it seems to be working okay now, but it’s lovely to know you are reading. Thank you.
