We have a very limited period of time on earth. Death awaits us all.
Each of us has the choice to make whether to care about what we do while we are here.
Sometimes things, in retrospect, might seem like a waste of time. They might be. Nobody's life is perfect.
None of us can do everything.
All of us can, though.
We each have a role to play. It's like a symphony. Sometimes - most of the time - we are in the background. At the same time, each of us are constantly playing solos. There is no shame in being a fourth-chair violinist - they are critical, and they are still on stage. They can also screw everything up, which is power in and of itself.
You must, must, must care about your environment. It molds you as much as you mold it.
Most people settle. There comes a point, though, where you can decide whether you want to settle or strive.
There is no downside to striving.
Again, we will all die.
Most people take what the world gives them; they bargain with life for a penny. They don't demand more from the world or, more importantly, from themselves. Everyone must decide for themselves if that is what they want for their lives and legacy. There is no shame in choosing to accept what is given to you. There is also no downside to striving.
The big tuna melt on multigrain bread with everything, extra hot peppers, is my favorite.
