Perspective is nothing without a reason to look from that angle

Well what keeps us ticking? Why do we continue being, i mean of course we all have our own reasons... whether it be family... or another sense of contribution that we feel we bring to this earth, but all of these things are just another way to say we have goals.

Again, whether it family or what, we need small goals throughout our lives to keep us going, to keep us attentive. I mean when are you really done? When you're retired? Does that mean you just go die? is that why people move to Florida? because its a comfortable place to lay your head down forever? We as people need a reason to get out of bed in the morning, we need an overall accomplishment to look forward to and to work for if we want to accomplish anything. Those stupid lines like "reach for the stars" are simply perfect to describe this, because even if its completely unimaginable to accomplish, at least "you'll fall in the cloud", that is your humanity.


  1. thats a fascinating point of view

  2. My grandma.

    Was a teacher for 30+ years. Takes care of my senile grandfather. (It's actually quite sad)
    She wakes up at 4:30 every morning, to go to walk the dogs, go to church, and bring home bagels in time for my grandpa to wake up. Then she does chores all day, and takes an interest in one of her 24 grand children (I shit you not. She had 9 kids)

    The garden, painting, knitting, whatever. That woman is my hero, and I wish I'll be as active as her if I live to her age.

    The point I'm trying to make is that we never retire, we just figure out other things to do with our time that are more 'for ourselves'.

    Also clicky clicky. Return the favor please.
