Whenever I’m unsure about whether I have “Enough” things out here in the world, I’m reminded of one of Aesop’s Fables.
The Dog and his Reflection
Should I assume that what I see reflected in my own mind as the chance to have more, seemingly giving me twice as much as I have right now, the way to go?
Could it be that in going after what I perceive as being “better,” — especially when I only “think” it looks more appetizing — because it just may be — or greedily, because someone else has it, and I want it too, wise?
In almost every instance, I have found that being smarter than the cute, wide-eyed dog in the picture could have, or more recently, has saved me unnecessary loss and disappointment.
How’s this you may ask?
Because I’ve realized that in order to get what is reflected, I may surely loose what I already have, and what I already have, if serving me well at present, is therefore enough.
No bones about it!
