Sometimes people ask stupid questions.
Questions like: “If you could have anything what would it be?”
What would I have? Anything? You know, to answer that question truly and accurately, there’s a lot of things I can think of that would be nice. Maybe I could be playing golf, video games, poker all day, be with my friends and family, be somewhere else. But in truth, in my experience I really believe that all of us are exactly in the most perfect spot wherever we are in our lives. It’s up to us to acknowledge it and see why that’s the perfect spot although it might be some place you don’t wanna be or you don’t like being at certain times. But whenever I’m somewhere I don’t want to be, I find that a lot of times I’m missing out on what’s really going on around me. So in my last few years I’ve been acknowledging that part of myself and saying “you know what? I have to find out what’s so great about this moment instead of wishing for something else.” And realize that I’m here, and you’re here, and everyone else is here for a perfectly good reason. There’s no reason why we’re not somewhere else. So this must be as great as any other moment that ever was and try to see that and make that happen and believe and understand it. It’s not always very easy. – JL
