I’ve come to the conclusion that life is pretty cool.
Think about this for a second…
Nobody in the world who has ever lived – nor anyone who will ever live – can have your experiences.
Nobody can hear a song and have the same exact emotions elicited for the same exact reasons.
Nobody can appreciate a movie for the exact same reasons you do.
Nobody can taste a dish – even if its the same dish on your plate – and taste the exact same thing.
Even the people you do your life with, the people you live with, the people you work with, the people you talk to, etc. can experience things in the same way you do, because by its very nature, life is unique. Everyone is shaped by different things and those different things shape our perceptions and our experiences, and I think that’s pretty freaking cool.
With that in mind, I’ll take a lot more joy in the fact that my car has to be opened from the inside; that I live in the house that I do; that I have the skill level at certain sports that I do; that I own the movies I do; that I attend the church I attend; that I had the childhood I had; that I have the preferences I have; that I get to go to work meetings sometimes at 7 AM and sometimes at 9:45 PM; that I work with the core group of people I do, etc etc.
Life is unique, and life is really, really cool.
