Michael Phillips once wrote that our greatest tragedy is that we undervalue our own experiences. If it happened to me, it couldn’t have been that great.
This explains why other people always seem to be having more fun than you are, making more money than your are, doing more cool stuff with their careers than you are… even if they’re not.
That’s because we only see what’s on the outside, forgetting that it’s how it feels on the inside that really matters.
The real light is in the inside. But it can take an entire lifetime to figure this out. So it goes.
