“The one perfectly divine thing, the one glimpse of God’s paradise given on earth, is to fight a losing battle – and not lose it.”
Life is a war.
You have to fight to get what you want, you have to fight to become the person you want to be. You have to fight to put food on the table, to be fit, to accomplish goals, to take care of your body.
The hustle, as they say, never ends.
Of course, you might be inclined to use one of life’s many crutches: to have someone else take care of your needs, to dream of retirement, to dream of winning the lottery or reaching Heaven.
Those are lazy ways of thinking and going about life.
Here and now. That’s life. It’s not about tomorrow, for it has yet to come.
Life is what happens right here, right now. And life is a war, a constant battle for what you want.
Make no mistake, each time you think otherwise, life will punish you.
It’s just how it is.
Plenty of time to sleep when you’re dead.
Until then… hustle and struggle and fight for your dreams and ideas and goals.
“Do not believe that others will die, not you…. I have wrestled with Thanatos knee to knee and I know how death is vanquished. Man’s immortality is not to live forever; for that wish is born of fear. Each moment free from fear makes a man immortal.” – Mary Renault
