The real skill in life is not to find the one dream you’ve been looking for, not to buy that one dream house, and not to finally be able to go on your one dream vacation.
It’s, oddly enough, to keep changing with the changes in your life.
I've come to find, the hard way, that often times by the time I’ve achieved and reached the things that I want, I’ve already changed and become a different person, so much that the old me that once wanted said “thing” no longer exists to continue wanting it.
Not only that, times change, landscapes change, cultures and industries change. Hek, even our biology changes.
I once wanted to be a photographer, then a writer, then a YouTuber. Now, sometimes I play with the idea of a musician, but I've come to find it’s not the attainment of any one thing that will make you happy. Rather, it’s a state a mind. To be willing to bend with the wind as it comes and goes. To accept and love the rain when it pours. To shake with the earth when it roars. And to light up with the sun when it shines.
There is no one “me” that will allow me to be forever happy.
There is only an ever-changing me that I need to learn to grow with.
Keep changing with the changes.
