Wind on water

I know too many people who don’t have hobbies. Their hobbies become bar hopping to meet someone, and once they do, their relationship becomes a series of meals and movies. They love one another because it’s comfortable to have someone there at the end of the day, someone to order-in with, someone to just sit in front of the television with. They love their relationship because it’s comfortable.

I have a news flash. Anyone can sit around and watch TV and enjoy eating fries with you. If when you speak of your relationship, you say it’s just so nice and comfortable, you should open your eyes. I’ve found that kind of comfort with nearly every other person I’ve dated. It takes more than a night of 24 and take-out for it to be right.

To really be happy, you need to make yourself happy. You need to discover and commit to things that bring you joy, where hours ruffle by like wind on water.
Once you find what brings you this happiness, no one can take it away from you. You can't find it in someone else.

People leave. People change their minds. People die.

There, I’ve said it; I’m off the box. Go back to watching TV. I'm off to study for Boards.
