"You can never win," comes the answer,
"So just take pleasure in playing the Game."

the greatest fear of humankind,

Acknowledging these doubts and the fears
is a powerful beginning.
It is liberating to say,

lies in living in the moment -
enjoying what you are doing today.
You don't need a reason to be happy,
just a choice.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
