What is life all about

“One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching. “ – Gerard Way

First of all, I’d like to tell you that there’s no good or bad in this world. It’s just people. And what they do. And what they say. And what they write. And what they choose not to do or say or write.

It’s that simple and that complicated.

It’s just the things that we do for us and the things that we do for others.

It’s what we’d like to be and what we really are.

It’s words versus actions.

It’s courage and faith versus fear. Versus over-thinking. Versus the sense of being irrelevant.

The idea that one man can only accomplish so much in the time that is given to him.

The idea that other people have been “blessed” with better looks, more luck, or the proper connections.

It’s about comparing yourself to others.

It’s about pursuing happiness instead of creating it.

It’s about becoming the person you’ve always wanted to be instead of trying to find that person.

It’s about the power you have.

It’s also about the power you choose to give away. To others. To the past. To the future.

It’s about going to sleep late at night, no matter how scared you are of nightmares. It’s about waking up in the morning, no matter how scared you are of your dreams.

  1. Interesting words and thoughts here and so much I agree with especially that last line. then again the first premise of there being no good or bad. While I do believe not everything is simply good or bad I do believe that there are some things that definitely fall into one of those two categories. There has to be black and white in order for gray to exist.

  2. Love this post!!! And Joseph Campbell is one of my all-time favorites but I’ve never heard this quote! He and his, “Follow Your Bliss” are why I named my art biz Blissbait Art. I gave it that name years ago because I wanted to practice truly following my bliss but I wasn’t certain what that was. I figured the Universe knows…so I made a vow to myself to follow my heart whose product would certainly be wonderful bait for bliss! Thank You for this and All You do! Cheers!!! 🤗☀️🌸🐬
