Tonight I was having a hard time finding my keys in my purse on the way home. I knew they were in there but I just couldn’t feel or see them. After taking off my gloves and rummaging through everything, they showed up in a side pocket.
Funny, I thought to myself. This purse apparently is too big because things get lost in it. But if it were smaller, then I might say that it was too small. I wonder, can anyone really own the “perfect” size purse or briefcase?
This might be similar to a lot of people I’ve heard from who have curly hair and wish theirs could be naturally straight like other people. Then, of course, are the straight-haired people who would rather die than be seen with their own straight hair; they put their beautician’s kids through college with all the perms they put their hair through. Isn’t it enough that you even have hair, I would ask them. But that point is lost on them; maybe it’s just easier to complain than to be thankful.
Could these examples possibly point to a similarity —-> we want what we don’t have? My goal is to want what I already have and forget about the have-nots. If anyone gets there before I do, please fill me in.
