Everything is relative
Life is what happens, while you're making other plans, which reminds me of this story (of which I learned during my time in India in 1996):
This Buddhist monk, he got up at 5.00 AM every day, with only one purpose: to work on his sand castle. 14 hours a day, every day, for a year >> 365 days. Then, when it was finally finished, he went to sleep. The next morning he got up, walked towards the sand castle and destroyed it.
What's my point?! Everything is relative. You wanna be happy?! Think about this: The planet is full of plants and animals. But we are the only ones who are seemed to be cursed with the ability to sit here and think: "Hey! I am here! Now what!?". What does that mean? I do not know either. But what I do know is this: if you are lucky, you live for 80 years, maybe less. So what should you do when you get up tomorrow? Be aware that live is an amazing thing, and the fact that you are here is amazing, the fact that you are aware of the fact that you are here! (smile), but most importantly: It can be over any moment now.
Therefore, the moral of this story: Enjoy, to the fullest, what it is you love, but when it's gone, it's gone.
