What Really Counts
If you are a little crab washed ashore after a big wave tore you from your feeding spot, what matters is to scamper back in your sand hole before the next wave pushes you so far out, you become somebody else's food.
A bit deeper than before, so the next wave doesn't tear you from your spot again, while you're still in shock.
If you swallow too much alcohol and are numbed by the experience not to see the wave that will knock you down, and manage to walk away from the water and reach safety, do as that little crab did. Double up your efforts to stay sober and to stay away from precarious ground.
What really counts is not to be happy.
Happiness is illusory.
Not to have possessions.
Possessions lose their glint the minute they are possessed.
What really counts is to learn from each experience and live fully aware every minute of our lives.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
