I have this theory. If you're going to live in gratitude, where you really take the time to appreciate this existence, you have to strive for some sense of satisfaction. Don't get me wrong, part of being human is allowing for the opportunity to make some home improvements on the old psyche.
I'm not saying that trying to "do you" isn't an incredibly rewarding and positive process. What I'm saying is that we... I... all of us can't really grasp the innate beauty of life if we are unable to find ourselves satisfied with the one we're currently living.
