Be content with what you have

“Without going out the door, you can know the whole universe.
Without looking through the window, you can see the ways of heaven.
The farther you go, the less you know.
Thus the sage knows without traveling,
sees without looking,
acts without doing.” -Lao Tzu, Taoteching, 47

“If you are depressed, you are living in the past;
