The Fox and The Grapes reminds me very much about how consumerism has placed us in a perpetual sense of dissatisfaction. In our constant effort to keep up with the Jones’ we forget to cherish the things we do have in front of us, whether it be material, spiritual, emotional, or community. My perfectionism is as much a weakness as it is one of my strengths. I have to thank a friend of mine who told me in the not-to-distant past that my desire to plan and execute everything so meticulously will prevent me from enjoying the process. True story. Always strive for better, but never forget to enjoy where you are and what you have now.
