“As you cannot do what you want,
want what you can do."
— Leonardo da Vinci
So, some may be thinking that if I don’t want what I have, and I don’t have what I want, how can I get what I want? An interesting dilemma. If I want what I don’t have, I feel lousy, and if I don’t like what I have or what I’m doing now, I feel lousy, so no matter what, I feel lousy, and that sucks!
When I am feeling lousy about my job or my situation, can’t wait to change it because I want something else that I don’t currently have, I’m stuck where I am. I’m stuck because I am getting more of what I am feeling.
So, the way out of what I don’t want, or not liking, is to find ways to like it, love it, and want more of it. The feeling good feelings will draw more opportunities to feel good, which will draw more opportunities for feeling better, and this is what leads us to what we want. Feeling crappy, I’m stuck and feeling good, I am free to move about the cabin.
I can have what I want by loving what I have.
