There is full spectrum of emotion encompassed in two life experiences: striving for a goal, and accidentally discovering harmony. Fighting for a goal is amazing, and there is the all-ensuring-feeling of swimming up river and landing where you wanted to be, unscathed, if not, for the better. But there is also the overwhelming joy, that may not be understood instantaneously, which comes from spontaneity. I say this now, both legitimately drunk and punch drunk from getting in a boxing match on stage as a professional comedian, because I want everyone to know that you may “shoot for the stars, but end up on the moon,” only to realize a star is a mass of incandescent gas and the moon is something you can stand on with another person.
Accomplish your dreams, and fight for them with all your tenacity, but do not hesitate to stop along the way to realize what is truly important and what is work. I have had some great opportunities in my “career,” and I would trade any of them to have my best friend remember he can have fun again even though he’s experienced great tragedy. Sorry, that’s very personal. I guess what I’m trying to say is if you find a moment in time where you don’t sweat the future, make it last.
And go for that adventure. You never know where you’ll end up.
