Perpetual Lottery

People say: I would be happy if…

I had a better job.
I had somebody to love.
I could move to another state.

But how do you know,
If you haven’t experienced
It before?

And how do you know,
That you still wouldn’t
Feel frustrated?

Oh, you already know,
Because you’ve tried it before?

Well you know what they say,
Third time is a charm!

But if that doesn’t work out,
You can always try to be happy,

On your own terms…

Listen to Sidewalk Prophets—The Words I Would Say song

“The idea of a ‘true self’ and a ‘false’ or ‘shadow’ self has long preoccupied psychologists. For example, Carl Jung introduced the notion of the shadow side of our personality. He viewed “the shadow” as our unknown, dark side—made up of the primitive, negative, socially depreciated human emotions such as sexuality, striving for power, selfishness, greed, envy, jealousy, and anger. But although the shadow personifies everything that we fear, and therefore refuse to acknowledge, it remains a part of us. Jung believed that unless we come to terms with our shadow side, we are condemned to become its unwitting victim.”

Excerpt from Make Peace With Your Unlived Life

“It’s not the destination, but the journey that makes it worthwhile!”

“Life is a journey, not a destination. Happiness is not ‘there’ but here, not ‘tomorrow’ but today.” by: Sidney Greenberg
