“If you think something is missing in your life, it is probably you.” -Robert Holden, Ph.D.
I recently came across this powerful quote in a Tiny Buddha article. I just love it! It is so easy to look out. What’s missing? What does that person have that makes them so damn skippy? And where can I buy it?
Maybe if I strive more. Achieve more. Then others will be able to see that nothing is missing in my life. Perhaps I’ll convince myself too. But you know what it’s the damnedest thing, when I lay appearances aside, when the rush of attainment wears off, I still feel this longing. This emptiness. This feeling that something just isn’t right.
Could it be that you’re not missing out on doing fun shit, you are missing out on who you truly are? The gifts you have to share with the world? The childlike joy you keep locked away? What if, what you’re truly longing for is to fully experience what is happening right in front of you?
Here’s the link to the Tiny Buddha article that inspired me today. It’s a good one. 🙂 http://www.tinybuddha.com/blog/how-to-get-out-of-your-head-and-show-up-for-your-life/
