A tragic irony


“A tragic irony of life is that we so often achieve success or financial success after the chief reason for which we sought it has passed away.” – Ellen Glasgow

So, once I thought through this IQ, it had a couple of meanings/interpretations for me.

ONE: That we work to achieve success during our prime, so we can eventually spend time travelling and enjoying the world, only to find that at the end of our life we no longer have the physical ability to travel or enjoy the world.

TWO: Figure out what sort of LIVING we want to do NOW, and just bloody-well start doing it NOW, with or without the success or financial independence. You’re a long time dead.

What say you?

With love,
