“life sucks”

I don’t know who typed these keywords into their computer and I don’t know why they would come across my blog by typing them. When I look into the stats I see some strange things which bring people to my blog but “life sucks” caught my attention.

Why? Not why does life suck, I mean there are all sorts of reasons why life could indeed suck, but why type this? What could you be looking for which could bring you to type “life sucks”?

If you are the person who typed this and are looking for something to hold onto then read this…

If you want to build a ship, don’t herd people together to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

As hard and as complicated as things may seem there are always reasons to long for the sea.

    OH MAN YOU’RE KILLING ME.
    Okay, that quote, yes it wasn’t yours (although I held my breath reading it until I got to the attribution), but YOU knew to pluck it out and apply it to this post that YOU had to write in response to what YOU saw as a cry of despair. Or whatever, don’t mean to put words in your, uh, keyboard.

    Anyway — if you ever feel like you’re writing into a bottomless pit — well, you probably won’t since you have other outlets and make a living and don’t seem self-pitying — but if you ever do, YOU’RE NOT. There are others like me (quieter ones, apparently) who are really groking your stuff. (Dating myself there?)

    Thanks for the encouragement GirlPie. I have been blogging for some time now and although sometimes it does seem like talking to myself, when I get feedback from someone who has a little moment of clarity because of something I’ve written it makes it worthwile.
