No title, just a few words
Whether we celebrate Easter holiday or not, we all have the opportunity to be re-born.
For me, everyday is a new way to try to live my life correct. I don’t look for others to make me happy, it is my responsibility to do for me. That is not to say that my life is an isolated one, on the contrary. I have received so much from so many it overwhelms me at times. My feet walked enough on the other side of life, the sad, lonely, hurtful one that I chose to flip that coin and see heads vs tails.
A writer I admire immeasurably, Hubert Selby, Jr (author of “Requiem for a Dream”, “Last Exit to Brooklyn”, etc.) put into words the way I feel about life:
“I realized that I would die,
and that just before I would die,
two things would happen.
number one, I would regret my entire life.
and number two, I would want to live my life over again.
and then I would die.
and that terrified me.
to think that I would live my entire life, look at it, and say oh..I blew it. was such a terrifying thought…”
