Don’t fall down. Or fall over. That might be worse. Unless that is your aim. It’s hard to tell what aim people have these days and what those aims mean, if anything.
Don’t be aimless. Be purposeful in your thinking. In your everyday. In the pursuit of the things that bring you great joy. Whatever or wherever that may be. Continue to strive for happiness that is equal measures practical and real. Maybe you have found what you’re looking for or maybe you have not, but hopefully, it ends up the way you would like it to.
We become realists when we begin to think of endings for ourselves. We envision how our lives might play out with what we have (or don’t have). Maybe we would like more, but know it won’t happen. We think about aging, we think about people, we think about mortality. Death is an ugly word but is one which we all think about on the days when things get too hard. For some of us, that is every day while for others it is an every day they wish to avoid at all costs.
If you’re trying to find the answers through someone else, you probably won’t find them. You probably will not get to the place you need to. The place of hope and dreams. Maybe you’ll get there someday, but it hasn’t happened for you yet and you’re somehow ok with that.
So maybe you’re doing great or better than that even. Regardless, have a fantastic week, month, and rest of the year.
