Give life a chance

You really, really have to give life a chance. You really have to. Boy, have we tried so many things in our lifetimes. And all wanting to be happy. Wanting—wanting to feel that one certain way that just feels good. And we give so many other things a chance. We try this, we try that. Each one somehow holding a little promise, being the thing that will make us feel that one certain way. That one special way. And ironically, the only thing that we really haven't given a chance is life itself.

Right now, we judge it in terms of good and bad. And we judge it in terms of "Well, I feel happy," or "I feel sad." But I don't look at life like that. I look at life really as an infinite possibility.
