Happiness and Ambition

Every now and then I’m completely satisfied with who I am and where I am. But there are times when it just isn’t enough. I feel like I should be doing more; for the world, my family, my career and myself. I should be living in a new country, I should be learning new skills, I should be, I should be. Those times of wanderlust leave me hungry for the world, and I wouldn’t trade that for anything. But too much ambition can consume you. On the flip side, being completely content with life encourages lethargy. Everything grows stagnant with a lack of change. I think the convergence of the two (ambition-driven determination to do something new and satisfaction with your place in the world) is where growth happens. It’s where you have enough faith in the world to be willing to do something, and enough excitement to actually do it.
