Make it special
What makes something special is that you must forgo other things in order to have it. If there is no missing out on something else, there is no special.
You cannot have it all, and even if you could, it would be meaningless. Because having it all would make it impossible for anything to be special.
What you can do is focus your time, attention, love, resources in a specific direction. What you can do is give your life to what you truly care about.
There are always people, possessions, experiences you’re missing. Yet you never have to miss out on the richness of life.
Just because something is exotic, or looks impressive when you post it online, does not make it special. What makes anything special is committing your care, your focus, your effort to it.
You can make right now special, right now, where you are, with what you have. Life is yours and at any time, in any circumstance, you can fill it with meaning, substance, beauty and love.
