Your Next High Place

“People are never satisfied.  If they have a little, they want more. If they have a lot, they want still more. Once they have more, they wish they could be happy with little, but are incapable of making the slightest effort in that direction”.   Paulo Coelho, The Winner Stands Alone

Wanting more material things always looms as our next “high place” and we climb until exhaustion sets in,  we decide that more will always mean more and we realize that little is actually what brings fulfillment.  I have always felt that there is nothing wrong with having material “things”, but what is deceiving is that “things” can make us lose our ability to be happy with less.  Perhaps rather than our desire for more being our next high place, our next personal summit is practicing how to be happy with less.  The next time you want more; ask yourself if you have the capability of being happy with less.  It is a self-assessment worth making.
