Through you window
That’s one way to see the world
Step outside and look back into
Look and listen
And you decide what to believe
Shine your light while you got one
~Dave Matthews, “Drunken Soldier”
Do you read a sentence for the words in it or the period at the end?
Life is not meant to be lived looking at the “bottom line” or the end result. Life is meant to be the process of living, not the search for the end… because if it was the destination, our entire purpose would be to die.
Life doesn’t owe you happiness, but you have every right to pursue it.
