I spend a lot of time trying to make the most of a situation that isn’t quite enough for me. How do you do that? How do you keep rolling and keep finding meaning in something that is below you? Below your cognitive skills, not below your…status in life or whatever. Settling without the lowering of standards or expectations. Is that possible? Yes, it is what causes so much of the discontent, frustration, disengagement in our world. Drudgery even at times.
Trying to take an 8 minute shower when you have 15 minutes of body to wash. We set ourselves up to almost disappoint ourselves. I don’t quite know why yet.
You like to keep me just one step behind.
