Peanut Butter and Life

My friend once told me that he felt that his life was like a peanut butter and jelly sandwhich, only that, after he had spread the peanut butter on the bread, there was no jelly in the fridge. He felt that his life was missing a key part of it, and that he had no idea where this part was, or if he did know, how he should recognize it. I guess life is like that sometimes. We all try so hard to achieve happiness, either through our work or studies or personal relationships that, sometimes, we miss out on a part of it. I've often felt the same way that my friend has, and have always wondered what it was that life was missing. After considering it, I assume that, life is only missing the things that we let it miss. My friend never searches for what his life was missing. Only complains that he's missing his jelly. After several personal changes in my own life, I have felt compelled to constantly search, whether internally or externally, for what I may be lacking. I haven't found it yet. I may never find it. But a life where I at least search for what it is I need seems better than only waiting for it to come to me.
