Good evening folks. Now sometimes i hear people say that they're not enjoying their life, or that they don't really enjoy living. I don't really agree with this because i think they're focusing on the wrong thing.
Living, by itself, is nothing. Living is like a canvas. No one looks at a painting and says "what an amazing canvas". The things that you enjoy doing, the things that you get satisfaction from in life - they are the paint on the canvas. Being alive allows you to do those things the same way you can't really make a painting without something for the paint to stick to.
Living, while pretty amazing, doesn't feel that great. I mean who gets off on blood flowing through their capillaries, or shedding and replacing cells? That's just the canvas. What we do with the paint is the most important thing.
