Someone recently made this statement to me, "the economic crisis has reared it's ugly head,because we all are chasing the good life"
As I see it, the problem is not the chasing, but the definition. There is nothing wrong with striving,reaching,wanting. But we all have the power to live the good life. If we can define what it is. Or what it's not.
It is not a thing, or things,or designer things. A bigger house, a shiny car, or money.Some would say it's family, friends and a general grateful joy of life.
I think it's more. You arrive alone, You leave alone, to whatever is next. So to live the good life, remember yourself.
Today I plan to be the best friend I have, in my opinion only.
