I have a fear that I am missing things in life. Do you ever have that feeling?
Being fearful of missing things in life is a scary feeling. It is living life in the “fear zone”, where there is always something better, stronger or faster. This is a zone where we do not enjoy the goodness in life.
I guess our lives are not lives of accepting what we have. It is more wanting what we do not have instead of appreciating what is in front of us. This is why we say “the grass is always greener on the other side” and most people cannot find the treasure that lies in their backyard (read The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho).
Nothing in life gets missed. Everything happens exactly when and in the way you are able to handle. Thinking about what is missing is like focusing on the empty half of the glass. Enjoy the fullness of the glass instead of feeling sad about the emptiness.
Yesterday is history,
Tomorrow is a mystery,
Today is a gift,
That’s why it’s called the present.
Enjoy the gifts life gives you.
