While taking Kayla to the bus stop this morning, she asked me a question:
"What do you think the greatest failing of humans is?"
Wow. The question kind of took me aback for a second. Then I thought. Finally, I answered, "Lying. I think if people were truthful, there would be a lot less contention and problems in this world."
She responded, "I think it is that humans are never content with what they have. They always want more. If they have a house, they want a bigger house. If they don't have something their neighbors have, they want what the neighbors have. They're not happy with what they've already got."
That's some profound thinking from a 16-year-old. I spent the rest of the drive to work contemplating whether or not I was content with my life as it stood.
I would have to say, "Yes."
That is not to mean I won't work hard to attain things I'd like for me and my family, or to be complacent about my life.
But right here, right now, I am content.
