Validation and Success
This morning I found myself thinking about the things we long for.You know, those nebulous, evasive things like ‘validation’ or ‘success’. ⠀
The dog keeps chasing his tail
And I was thinking how chasing those longings are like the proverbial dog chasing his tail. I smiled in remembering CS Lewis’s insight,
“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.”
Let's remember to keep a healthy perspective on the slippery gage of "success". Let's hold our desires and goals up to the light of eternity, keeping both feet on the ground and hearts grounded in gratitude for the gift of life.
