Wise Words From A Dead Friend
My dead friend at 9:18 am this morning: “How disappointed are you to find out that we came here to be happy?”
Me (With a mouth full of toothpaste): Whaaa…disappointed? What?
DF: Just be quiet and listen.
It’s not a business trip where all you do is work, work, work.
It’s not a prison for idiots and bad people.
It’s not a series of problems that need to be fixed.
It’s not a tourist destination where all you do is take pictures and leave.
It’s not a planet in peril that needs to be saved.
Contrary to some beliefs it’s not a schoolroom with a huge test at the end.
This beautiful blue planet was created for our enjoyment. Every animal, plant, rock and grain of sand is here to add to the fun.
Quit taking it all so damn seriously! Live life. Have fun. Be happy.
Me: That’s it? Are you going without wishing me a happy weekend?
DF: Jeez. I think that goes without saying.
