So Now by Charles Bukowski

If things last forever, what would make them special?

You’ll fall in love, you’ll fall out of love, or lose the ones you love. You live and you’ll die. So many people before you have lived, loved, succeeded, failed, and died. You and I aren’t any different. Nothing lasts forever! Rather than being depressed by this fact, feel grateful, excited, and uplifted.

I read an article about the last words of the patients on the palliative care. Those patients in their last days have revealed the most common regrets they have at the end of their lives.

I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me
I wish I hadn't worked so hard
I wish I had let myself be happier

People don't realize until the end that happiness is a choice. They live their life according to patterns and habits. They follow comfort of familiarity. Deep within, they long to laugh more and have craziness in their life.

So Now? by Charles Bukowski

the words have come and gone,
I sit ill.
the phone rings, the cats sleep.
Linda vacuums.
I am waiting to live,
waiting to die.
I wish I could ring in some bravery.
it's a lousy fix
but the tree outside doesn't know:
I watch it moving with the wind
in the late afternoon sun.
there's nothing to declare here,
just a waiting.
each faces it alone.
Oh, I was once young,
Oh, I was once unbelievably young!

May you find your happiness!!!

Find what gives your life meaning and what gives you a sense of purpose. Find out what you want. Start from there...

Good luck. 😊
