restless?

You know that nagging feeling that things could be better and that you can make them better?

Well. you are not alone, everyone knows that feeling.

To be unsatisfied with the way things are is what makes us human. It is both a curse and a blessing, we are never truly satisfied but it is this same dissatisfaction that drives civilisation forward.

What you do with that dissatisfaction is what matters. Rejecting it and only ever trying to live in the moment, being at peace with the way things are is rejecting the very thing that makes us human.

Accepting it means accepting the suffering that comes with it, but also the adventure and beauty of creating something and carrying your share of humanity’s burden, as Jordan Peterson would phrase it.

"Our restlessness is, in fact, a sign of our humanity." Ronald Rolheiser

Get skin in the game, be restless.
