What do I need more of in my life?
I live a pretty good life, I like where I live, I am reasonably well paid, I eat what ever I want, and I travel a comfortable amount. And yet somethings are missing. I got to thinking "what do I need more of in my life?" Here are a few rambling thoughts.
I need to listen to people talk about things that I know nothing about. I have reached the point in life where "been there - done that," covers most things. When I listen to others I am more validating what I think I already know, than I am exploring new ideas. I need knew ideas, new experiences in my life.
I need to spend time with people who are different than I am. I find myself with hardening of the attitudes about people who are different, the best solution is getting to know people whose life experience is different than mine. If I understand their point of view, I don't have to agree with it, but it is easier to tolerate difference, when I understand it.
I need to spend more time thinking and being creative. I get so busy, that I am doing, not thinking.
What do you need more of in your life?
