The secret of Western life is finding a healthy balance between your work, your family, your friends, self-care, and proper diet and exercise.
If you’re waking up every day trying to be better than you were the day before, you’re probably asking yourself where you invested more energy previously that neglected something else, in addition to whether your meeting self-expectations through proper self-discipline.
I’m not sure if this ever reaches a moment where you say, “I’ve done it. I’m a complete master of myself. I’m living the perfect life.” So, life becomes a continual process of growth and self-discovery.
It’s quite amazing. The trick is to find contentment (or even joy) in the journey.
