The Myth of Camelot

USers are classically "Pollyanna". We think if an individual tries hard enough, he can do anything. We think if we just "give it another day", situations will improve. I love that. It's sunshine and fresh air and cotton candy.

I was watching Grey's Anatomy the other morning and one of the characters said something like, "Alex, you don't have endless opportunities to be happy."

Maybe this is obvious to most people, BUT...

We are finite beings. Opportuities for certain things will pass us by if we lack the panache to reach out and grab them. There may not be another bit of sweetness around the bend.

I'm not trying to be gloomy. I am trying to remind myself to sieze everything each day offers. Tomorrow is never a guarantee.

panache. gumption. gusto.
