When the newness wears off
April 10, 2017 8:40pm CST
It is sad but true that whenever we experience something new the excitement wears off in no time. I can write a book on the things that I have experienced in my life and the joy they game me the first time. A very flimsy example is when we got our fridge way back when we were just married. I was so excited that I would make ice candies every day. Today I have two and the only time I look at them is to to load them and offload them. The excitement I get to see the first fruit, the first flower and how the excitement wears off even when I see the trees laden year in and year out. I wonder if there is any excitement in the lives of those who have millions stacked in their bank accounts. What has been your experience?

Material things offer temporary pleasures. We get more satisfaction from things that money cannot buy, like human relationships, the results of the effort we put in our work no matter how humble or simply enjoying the beauty of creation than nature provides.

It is true that we get excited about our new thing, be it any material thing or a person or a happening. However, as we use the thing or go through the happening, the excitement goes down. Then we start looking for something new and different. It is part of life.
