Spoilt For Choice
Updated: Dec 9, 2020
In an age where you can just about have anything you want, whenever you want it.
You’re literally spoilt for choice.
You no longer have to sacrifice anything, because you can seemingly have it all
You deserve to be happy
Progress is not having to want for anything
Not having to give anything up.
But when you grow up believing this to be the case
You deny your self of so much more
Never having to really evaluate what’s important and never learning to appreciate that which has inherent value.
The ease in which we can have anything, dilutes the significance of those things we do have,
And yet, it’s still never enough!
We have so many options,
That we can’t fathom the idea of missing out on anything.
We have so many choices to make, that we end up making none.
You see, scarcity has utility.
It forces you to level up.
To not only choose wisely, but also appreciate the things that you do have.
It teaches you the significance and value of things
It teaches you humility
And it teaches you the significance of delayed gratification - giving something up right now, for something of much greater value, in future.
To ‘live in the moment’ was never meant as a cry to embark on a hedonistic existence
But rather as a call to remain grounded and connected with the things and people that actually matter.
