David Brooks: The Road to Character
An older woman I worked with some years ago responded to my comment of “I can’t wait until Friday” with “Eileen, Don’t wish your life away!” Properly chastised, I have since recalled the wisdom of her words, especially now that 10+ years are passed.
Instead of dreaming about happier lives, just be happy for 10 minuts today. Then make it 15 tomorrow.
Each day is a gift – so don’t waste it by not making progress on being your best self.
