And with that thought comes the realisation that everything that I've ever done, said, felt, thought or wished for has brought me to where I am now.
So in a sense I've already achieved what I set out to do. It might not be what I want now, but it must reflect what I wanted, otherwise what have all those actions, thoughts, feelings and aspirations been for?
Now I know this argument isn't bullet-proof at least at a rational level. But it feels healthier than the constant dissatisfaction of seeming to be never where you want to be.
Does it work for you?
