"Whatever the case, I believe true happiness lies in really understanding ourselves: who we are, what we're capable of, and what we can really accomplish with the resources we have. When you realize one small dream, it feels awesome, and it gives you the freedom to take a tiny step toward your next small dream.
What I'm really trying to say is, be happy with now. Be happy with you. Be happy with learning to be the best little fish you can be, and you'll care much less about what the big fish are doing.
Don't reach for the stars. Sometimes just reaching to touch the ceiling is more attainable. It's not "settling", it's not under-achieving, it's just the first step to getting what you want."
What would today look like if I actually started to think that way?
