Default I learned something about me today!

Just thought I'd share this with everyone. Might help some further down the road.

All throughout my life I was so wrapped up in what I don't have. So I tried everything possible to meet that desire to have what I don't have. It caused all sorts of problems, failures & burn out in my life. Trying so hard to get that extra dollar to afford the extra PC card, or what not. Soon enough that passion took over my entire life, my finances and almost destroyed my life. I was so bent on having everything everyone else had to gain their approval.

Now I have come to a different conclusion. What you don't have should not keep you from doing what you want! It is what you have that will bring you to a perfect place of satisfaction. Rather than meditating on what you don't have, and instead being thankful for what I do have. Really changed my perspective about life.

Just thought I'd share the mind of Ben a little more.

Wow, work really beat me down today. But I guess "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger!"

That's pretty awesome, man. A perspective change is something we could all use from time to time.

We could all use a little bit of that attitude in our lives. Hope your mini vaction from work helps as well!!
