Satisfaction and happiness comes from moving in the right direction, not being in the right place.
No matter where you are, if you try to linger there, you will eventually stop being happy. You have to keep moving in the right direction to keep being happy and satisfied.
Likewise, no matter how far you feel you are from a good place, you will feel better as soon as you start heading the right way, even if it feels very far away.
Learning to notice that feeling of moving in the right direction (usually the opposite of what feels good in the moment) is very helpful.
