MOTD | December 6, 2015

It’s easy to fall into the habit of looking for something to love–something to keep you going when the momentum of excitement starts to wane–be it in a situation, job, task, or relationship. The thing about looking for these qualities, is that things change; humans change; circumstances change.

“It is important to look not for something to love, but to look with love.”

Maybe, it is the difference between:

“Well, at least […]. There’s that, I guess.”

…and …

“Yes, I love this […]. I haven’t forgotten. :)”


Maybe, that is all it takes to keep the exhilarating momentum of newness from fading. Qualities and features can change, but your perspective doesn’t have to.


 

Disclaimer: Of course, this doesn’t apply to things that make you absolutely miserable or harm you.
