What's Next ?

It's funny how most people run after fame and money, after being the center of attention, being important and special, the desire of being great and powerful... or in other words, how we all seek perfection...

which leads me to a question, what is perfection??? does it even exist? can we ever reach it? if not, then why do ppl keep on trying when they know they'll never reach where they want???

i've been told that we're greedy by nature, that no matter how far we go, how much we accomplish or get, we're always going to want more... that our needs are never going to be fulfilled, and our standards are never going to be met...

i sometimes wonder if Bill Gates would ever stop wanting to have more, i wonder what does he want to do with all that money, is he ever going to be able to spend it? if we have more than enough of smth, why do we keep on wanting more???

i can't help but imagining that i've become extreamly rich, that i've invented a new powerful machine, or that i've painted the greatest painting ever, that i've written the most touching symphony anyone could ever dream of hearing... that i've published a great novel, or discovered smth amazing, imagining that i've fulfilled all my dreams... but i can't stop asking myself, what's next?

sometimes we lose ourselves, we forget to live, and forget to enjoy the little miracles and details that surround us in our daily lives... we forget who we are, and we no more care to spend time with our beloved ones, in hope to reach where we think we want to be... it's devastating to realize how much we've missed by the time we reach there, the horrible part is when we find out that we were where we really wanted to be, but we just couldn't see it :)

    Trying our best to enjoy the present lends a lot of sense to our life. Happiness is an attitude and it doesn't come with this or that. At every stage we have a choice and it is entirely ours.
    We choose to be happy and content with what we have and what we r or vie for other things and maybe even lose what we have.
