[F]or just one second, look at your life and see how perfect it is. Stop looking for the next secret door that is going to lead you to your real life. Stop waiting. This is it: there’s nothing else. It’s here, and you’d better decide to enjoy it or you’re going to be miserable wherever you go, for the rest of your life, forever.
One bird singing back to another because it can’t not.
—Jane Hirshfield, from “All Day The Difficult Waiting”, in Come, Thief (via the-final-sentence)
