I want to be happy at all times, feel good at all times, and be at peace at all times. I want the same for others.

That’s utopia. Utopia doesn’t exist.

This is reality. This is where we live.

Reality is unfair. It’s filled with tough choices and difficult decisions. We don’t always get what we want. We must make sacrifices.

Reality is hard.

Our life will never be perfect, but it can be better. We can live a better quality of life and improve our life. We can slowly and gradually change our reality.

Change is hard.

Refuse to settle. Refuse to settle for less than we deserve. Refuse to settle for misery and unhappiness.

We will never reach a permanent state of nirvana, but we can take steps today to be a little bit happier, feel a little bit better, and live a little bit more peacefully.
