Content vs. want

To want more for yourself, out of life, there is no shame in that. The main purpose of this blog is to help you improve yourself professionally, personally; but ultimately gain fulfillment within. My mind is constantly searching for new ideas, new information, ways to improve a weakness I have, always searching. I love it because I stay in a constant state of learning, but I also envy those who are complete with exactly who, and where they are. They don’t need to work on themselves because they are whole, and accept their flaws. They can work at the same job for years to come, even if they don’t “love” it, but are content with being there. They are fulfilled in every way that I seek. I must remind myself daily to be appreciative of what I have, and expect none. I didn’t grow up poor and without. My parents were able to send my three brothers and I to catholic schools. They sacrificed their wants so their boys could go to the same schools their parents sacrificed for them to go. We didn’t have the biggest house but it was filled with an abundance of love and joy. My main goal is to remain fulfilled with the person I am, while gaining more for myself financially. It’s a tough balance because my burning desire to not only become free financially for myself, girlfriend, and daughter, tends to over power fulfillment. It is also fueled by a great passion to take care of and free my parents of financial burden. I could never pay them back for what they have done for me, but I long to see their faces, when they no longer need to work if they don’t want to.
