I'm always grateful for everything that I have in my life.
I don't think I could've asked for more.
When someone told me to work harder to earn more, I answered her "How rich do you wish to be? It's never going to end. If I could be richer, I'd be grateful. But, I'm already happy at where I am at now."
It's absolutely not wrong to work harder and have an ambition.
But too much ambition can cause you stress of being too focused on reaching that goal. You'll neglect everything besides that.
It's also absolutely right to be grateful for what we already have.
But doing nothing without effort doesn't lead you to anywhere. Life isn't meant to be stopped at one point, right? You have to keep on moving and improving your life.
Striving for a balanced life is harder than making it 'perfect'. I feel like I'm always 'in between'. I'm either being a perfectionist or do not give a single f at all. Sometimes I'm so focused on doing a goal that I over-push myself for it, without looking at my surroundings. Sometimes I feel like I HAVE to do something, but I'm too lazy for it.
Up until now, I'm still learning to have a balanced life. It's okay not to do my routines when I don't feel like it. It's okay to accept changes, especially the ones I don't want them to appear.
It's okay to go backward, because I'll learn and improve myself from the mistakes.
I'm still learning about acceptance. I'm still learning not to be so stubborn.
When you're wondering... Why do problems keep on coming?
Think about... That it's the process we have in life. Problems are the challenges we have to face. Without them, we can't be a better person. At the end, it's about how we decide to face them.
Solve our problems with acceptance and pick up the lessons. Not with sadness and anger.
