I know

I'm sorry to all of you who didn't get a chance to read my blog yesterday. (I am writing this like people actually read this, don't ruin it. Just let me have this.)

I was thinking about time and space, the universe, the reason we exist and then I realized that somethings burden us rather than enlighten us. I could devote the rest of my life to answer these questions like so many others have, but I have decided not to. Sure it may be because I lack the motivation or the intellect to even begin my search, my quest for brain knowledge, but really it's because I don't want to. We live our lives doing what we want to and doing things we don't want to. What is the percentage difference for you? I think this is how we should examine our lives, not if we are happy, in love, satisfied, but rather if we have chosen to do the things we are doing. Now, I must explain that there is a difference in making ourselves happy and doing what we want to do. I conscientiously know that some things I want to do will cause me pain, suffering, anguish and possibly a complete mental breakdown (I'm thinking about the time I wanted to bring back Disco, and yes I will always capitalize it.) Now granted most of the things we want to do is to bring us happiness.

However, we do things to get us money, increase our knowledge or help someone we care about, or even stranger, to help someone we don't. I have a mission for you. The next time you do something, ask yourself if it was something you wanted to do (remember reasons exceed or differ from happiness.) Then, if you didn't want to do it ask yourself why you did it. If you did want to do it, find the reason. Also remember that "something" has a different definition for everyone. I just did something, and so did you. Now, ask yourself why?

Hi Dave
