Whenever I want something, the unspoken assumption is that once I get this thing, life will be better, my nagging desire will finally cease

Keywords: allow, anxiety, aspirations, attachment, avoidance, discomfort, grasping, grateful, gratitude, happiness, let go, mindfulness, peace, practice, reaching, wanting

It dawned on me this morning that wanting is part of what it means to be alive. Even though we may reach our goals or obtain whatever it is we desire, that wanting is not going to go away. There will always be something else to fixate on. We are all going through life chasing a moving target. At first this can seem rather depressing. Will we never truly reach happiness then?
