This is intended for the young people who read my blog (although, the more I think about it, that intention can spread to any age). There is a caveat to yesterday’s post. Steve Job’s quote is powerful, but then what? I do not think we have to love our lives daily, and I believe there is a larger picture upon which to focus. Do we like our lives mostly, and are we doing what we can to move in the direction we feel is best for ourselves and our loved ones? We all have tough days, cranky days, tired days, days that drain us. Those days are no less useful because they assist us in defining more closely what we do want. Each decision we make is a step nearer to or further from something else. Finding what we are particularly good at, and creating space in our lives to nurture that, is necessary for our long-term satisfaction. We rarely have control over all the variables that arise, so if we can be with what goes on, day in and day out, calmly, without trying to push a specific outcome, but with the understanding of our intention, I believe circumstances will, with all the necessary fits and starts that come with honing, work out.
