My friend, Ben believes this or at least he did at one time, many years ago. His life today is not as enjoyable as it once was. I wondered if he’d changed his mind and scrapped his philosophy. Because I’m curious, I called him up to ask.
“Lemme ask you something,” I said. “Years ago, you told me that you felt a person was right where they wanted to be. They set their life up the way they wanted it. Do you still believe this?”
“Yes, I believe that more than ever.”
“Whew!” I said. “I was kind of hoping you’d not renege on this. I thought you might since you don’t like your current circumstance so well.”
“No I don’t like it,” he said. “I don’t like my situation.”
“So how do your resolve this? How do you resolve the fact you don’t like the way it is, and you created it?”
“It’s set up this way, because the alternative is worse.”
I asked on the boards, Are You Right Where You Want To Be?
I got back a resounding, NO!
I’m sorry, but I don’t think that is a good way to see things. It’s like wearing a wet blanket all day.
When I find myself stuck in certain circumstances I ask myself, how did I get here and why did I get here. The answers are enlightening and allow me to get moving towards a better situation.
If you are not where you want to be, are you moving there?
