I have a friend who has lived in California for a while, and he has been married for 25 years. He said something to me that stuck with me. He said, “Life is like a movie, you can only see the beginning, and the end, and I’m glad I’m at the end.
There are many things that can change in life. For example, things like being sober, having an inner-city life, and being a millionaire. It can sometimes take a while to get through the first five or six years, but you can still have your life and a life of your own.
For me, that’s a great quote, as I have never been through a long dry spell and am pretty glad to be a millionaire. However, I’ve been in a long dry spell, and I’ve been through a lot of things, and I have a lot of regrets, so even if it’s just a few years, I can’t imagine I would be the same person without it.
When you’re in the midst of a long dry spell, you can find yourself asking, “What would I do without that?”. When you get stuck, you can ask yourself, “what would I do if I found myself in the middle of something?”. When you’re stuck, you can ask yourself, “what would I do if I lost my job and couldn’t pay my rent?”.
