That title is thanks to Jack Kerouac, from a list of 30 points he noted to achieve creative success.
The entire list was pretty inspiring, from “the crazier the better” to “accept loss forever”.
I like this one best, though.
“Be in love with yr life.”
It’s simple. Profound. Easy to achieve.
In fact, I am quite successful at this particular rule.
I – yes, me, with list after list of un-kept resolutions, un-met goals, heart-ache and heart-break; me, with un-paid bills, disobedient dogs, an unfinished house and a broken-down car; me, who probably complains too much and indulges in self-pity far too often – am absolutely – wildly – in love with my life!
I have a lot to be thankful for, many things to be happy about…but that’s not really the point. If it were a tally sheet, with good and bad both noted, it would probably be a fairly even score. The older I get, the more losses there are.
Still, I’m thrilled to be here.
Every day, challenging or not, happy or not, here for the experience.
In love with my life!
