Find something to live for. If it’s art, do it every day. Doesn’t matter if you’re tired or uninspired.
If it’s something else, then do it with gusto.
I don’t know about the other stuff. Art, beauty, joy in found moments. Its different for each of us. Meditate. Find the path that works for you.
Work, is often just money. Remember you are selling your time, not your soul. Don’t shackle yourself by thinking that it is anything but. Maybe if you’re building your dreams and that’s a business, maybe that’s good enough. But so often it’s not.
Find someone to love, find the path. Before everything else, before the tawdry details drag you down.
