A Problem - Constantly Reaching

Dear friends,

I have a problem.  I have a problem and it is always out there for everyone to see.

I am constantly reaching.

You probably knew this about me.  A person who writes a blog called "Making Better Best" is, understandably, always reaching for something better.

However, there are some things that maybe we shouldn't be reaching for.

I am constantly reaching for a better job.  I have job postings for searches come to email each day.  I have job sites that I check each week to see if there is anything of interest.  I've applied to hundreds of jobs.  I've interviewed for a handful. When does this just become wasted effort?  And further, when will I ever be able to settle.  I haven't bought a house. I haven't committed in a relationship.  All because I am constantly reaching for the next best thing.

Some may say that is just because I am unhappy in my current situation, and that I'll settle when I'm in a situation that's right.  I haven't gotten far enough down the road to confirm that.

I still think that trying to make yourself the best you that you can be is important.  Where has your desire to constantly reach for something better impacted your life negatively?
