The options aren’t alone or in bad company. The only option should be surrounded by people you love that love you. Life would be so much easier if we all just took it back to the basics and expressed gratitude for those things and realized all the rest while nice and fine and fun is just extra.
The options aren’t sick or burning it on all ends. The only option should be thriving in health and emotional well-being. Doing whatever you want whenever you want is well and fine if you have really good (healthy) habits and great genetics to begin with. So many of us have limited mind/body connections and that relationship is absolutely vital to our lives.
The options aren’t having it all or being miserably discontent. The only option should be appreciating where you are in the world and the lessons that presents. Circumstances change, people change, lives change. If you are always chasing the next carrot you will never stop to fully enjoy the ones you have.
There are no greater gifts in life than love, happiness, laughter, compassion and kindredness.
I always come back to gratitude and humility, because it is the straightest shot to the above. But hey…… you do you, right? I’d rather hang out with an authentic and honest asshole than a fake and disingenuous nice person. But again…..not that those are the only two options. Anyone can speak from the heart. I highly recommend it. It’s the best way to get to know yourself.
