Just over two years ago, I was sitting in a cubicle thinking to myself “If only I could quit this job to work for myself. Then I’ll really be happy.”   I wanted this lifestyle so badly that I let it cloud reality. This was 100% the wrong way to think about life. No matter what my situation was, I needed to be satisfied with the here and now.    I quickly found out that there had to be a level of contentment to gain in order to accept where I am (or was) in that exact moment. .
