...in all aspects of life.
The reason for our existence is as vast as the stars in the night sky, but you can't deny that the most quintessential aspect of our experience is to accomplish and enjoy. As a young guy, barely old enough to legally drink alcohol, achieving stability and peace of mind is key. This is usually defined by the two "Fs", finances and family, but can extend to any other parameter we view as worthy; some folks think being one with nature is achieving peace of mind, while others will contest that such a thing can only be found in God.
Sometimes I hate going to family picnics, barbecues and what not, because my aunts and uncles always ask me, "Have you found a nice girl to marry yet, Tyson?"
"No, aunty, I haven't.'
"Hey, you never know..."
The truth is: I'm not there yet. And you know what? That's fine, 'cause it might take a while. Who says I have to be married before I'm 25? Who says being a writer isn't a real job? Who says I have to be rich and live in a nice house and drive a Mercedes? Well, that will be nice but still...these feats don't define me as a person, and they sure as hell aren't unattainable because I failed to achieve them by a certain age.
I am happy at this point in my life right now. Do I wish I had more? Yes. But I'm taking my time and simply living in the moment. Whether we're Not there, Nearly there or There, I think we all need to take it easy and just enjoy what we have accomplished so far.
