Sometimes, you need a change in perspective. A little change of scenery. Shake things up a bit. I try to do that. Sometimes in big ways, but often in little ways. For example, I recently changed the living room around just because I got tired of it the other way. I didn’t redecorate or anything—just moved the couch here, the chair there and the TV over by the bookshelf. It’s like a new room all over again and I’m not so tired of sitting in it as I used to be.
My grandmother once told me that only dissatisfied people feel the need to change their furniture around regularly like that. And I said in response, “Oh yes, exactly!” She meant it in a not so nice way, but I took it another way. I AM dissatisfied with life. Not in an unhappy, depressed, miserable sort of way, but in an “I plan on wrestling everything I can out of life” way. I am dissatisfied in that I want to try more, do more, be more, share more, help more, discover more, search more, experience more, tell more, create more. I don’t think I will EVER be satisfied and I don’t think that’s a bad thing.
