"Creating a life that reflects your values and satisfies your soul is a rare achievement.
In a culture that relentlessly promotes avarice and excess as the good life, a person happy doing his own work is usually considered eccentric, if not a subversive.
Ambition is only understood if it’s to rise to the top of some imaginary ladder of success. Someone who takes an undemanding job because it affords him the time to pursue other interests and activities is considered a flake.
A person who abandons a career in order to stay home and raise children is considered not to be living up to his potential. As if a job title and salary are the sole measure of human worth.
You’ll be told in a hundred ways, some subtle and some not, to keep climbing and never be satisfied with where you are, who you are, and what you’re doing.
There are a million ways to sell yourself out and I guarantee you’ll hear about them.
To invent your own life’s meaning is not easy…but it’s still allowed.. and I think you’ll be happier for the trouble” -Bill Watterson
The thing about people who’ve been assassinated…
Jesus, MLK Jr, JFK, John Lennon, all these people had one thing in common, they told us to love one another… Then bam, right in the fucking head.
Apparently learning to love one another, unconditionally and without regard to political, social, or religious beliefs is just too much for us..
Maybe it’s just my ignorance, but the world would be a lot better if we just led by example, and learned to love one another. To greet strangers with a hug rather than a clinched fist.
Just a thought…
