“Stop Looking and Start Living”

I saw this message posted on a  sign while driving in downtown. It caught my attention because, even if it has to do with finding apartments, it also can apply to life in general. We are always looking for something different and better, looking for the best possessions, looking for a better way of life. We are rarely satisfied. It is hard to enjoy life just the way it is if we keep looking for something other than what we are. Why are we always so unhappy with what we have? Why not be content with the little we currently have? We want a better body, a bigger house, a bigger TV, more entertainment, and more recognition. Simplicity is what I long for, but this society does not allow it, does not embrace it.
