    I Want More -in- Life, Not From Life

    I do want more in life. I want better health, good friends, learn something new everyday. But the only way I'm going to get it is by how much I put into my life. Life doesn't owe me anything.

    Can't ignore this constant feeling

    that there's more to life than what we've been presented. When I say that I don't mean gods or an afterlife. I simply mean, this society feels like a prison. From an early age my parents told me to strive for more at all times. To let my reach exceed my grasp. Then, as the...

    Ever feel like you aren't truly living up to

    your potential. That there is more to your life than clocking in and punching out. My greatest fear is to die unsatisfied with my life. And my dreams are simple on their own all that I need is a Square One.

    Uh huh! I do. More time,

    more energy, and more life. I want it all. I want to be able to go hiking again. I want to go camping again. Not in a trailer camp, not at some camping ground with a lot of noisy campers. I want the wilderness. The quiet where the noisiest critter around is a blue jay. I'd...

    Um Yeah

    I want more passion, fulfillment, purpose even. I can't hide behind religion for a purpose. I have always lived with a sense of dissatisfaction wanting more, more from myself, more from others, and more from life. This is only because I put so much effort in to get nothing in...

    I Want More

    Human beings are complicated and unpredictable. If you are given 1 billion dollar, you'll still want more. If you are given 3 mountains full of gold, you'll still want to be given more. If you are given the moon, you'll offer the sun too, because you want more. So what is "MORE...
