u·to·pi·a

Utopia is defined as “An imagined place or state of things in which everything is perfect.”

Let me be clear. I do realize perfection does not exist and any search for it will be fruitless. There is no perfect job, or perfect spouse, perfect city or perfect house. Every town or city has it’s pros and cons. Warm in the winter, too hot in the summer. Mild in the summer, too cold in the winter. Beautiful endless sunny days, result in drought. Bugs, crime, earthquakes, traffic, there is never a scarcity of complaints for any particular location it seems. Every job comes with it’s own set of issues, and inevitably there will be certain aspects that you just don’t like. This is life.

However, while I understand there is no utopia, I can’t help but think maybe there is something better. Something undiscovered. I often find myself saying “It’s fine.” I do think it’s important to be grateful for all that you have, but I hesitate to just settle for “fine”. If you don’t like your job, find a new one. If you don’t like where you live, move!
