The famous Marcel Proust’s quote reveals the true meaning of discovery concept. Discovery is something that everyone likes, but only few are able to actually enjoy it.
Discovery is not about exploring new areas and going to places which you have never visited before, but it is about looking at your surroundings from a different perspective. It is about noticing every tiny detail that exits around you and how it is affecting you or others.
Lots of people are sure that to get away from where they are right now and going to a new place will sort out all the problems and make them feel happy. However, they fail to understand that no matter where they go, they are still the same. In a while, one will come across the same emotions, thoughts or feelings that they are experiencing right now.
Of course, discovering new places is exciting. You get a chance to gain beneficial knowledge but once you are familiar with everything, you will reach a saturation point. Therefore, it will not be wrong to claim that going to a new place is just a temporary distraction from the reality. It is not a permanent solution to our unhappiness.
Sometimes, changing your outlook can really help to sort out the difficulties one might be suffering from a very long time. It does not require much effort; it comes naturally, in fact once you are able to look at your life from a different angel, you will understand the picture in a much clearer way and actually start enjoying your life. So, take your chances, since it is worth giving a shot.
