How would you like it, your life? You wake up one day and you’re young, very glowing. You’re having the time of your life; nice friends, good folks, a nice lover who cares for you and takes you out to new places. You’ve lived through the tough parts of your life, and you’re pretty sure that the future would be bright. You’ve had all the signs of a successful job and a raise in your paycheck. You’ve promised all the goodies to your nice happy family. But, one day you’re lying in your room and you realize that it is all boring and dull. The happiness is fake and the money makes you sadder because there are unfulfilled desires still left, and they are growing. Maybe it was the insurance, or the death of your best friend’s mother that saddens you, but all the same. You’re suffering.  Not happy, and depressed. You need a good reason, reassuring that your life is worth the while. Maybe you’re not too satisfied, because you’re too ignorant to see the big picture. Or maybe you aren’t in the big picture! But what difference does it make? You’re suffering all the same. If you could change one thing about your life to make it better, you’d find out that there’s nothing you could’ve done to change what it is now. It’s overwhelming.  There’s only so much you can do. Maybe all the books you read were teaching you unconsciously the sad lessons of life, and you accepted it from the inside. But, I don’t want it to be sad and boring.
