“The global playground is vast and full of opportunity. Every second of every day has something new for each one of us. The capitalistic system is great for some people. The problem is that many of us do not know what we want. Joy cometh to those who do know. All walks of life are out there with few wrong ways of living in comparison to that which is right to the individual. We have the freedom to get all we want. The simple question is waiting to be answered. What do you want? All the tools in the world are at our disposal.
Family, friends, love, and perspective. The value of the dollar clouds our reason. We often want nice things that cost money. Need and want are totally different things in 2012. Need is manageable, even easy if a person has his or her head on straight. Want has a way of stealing our time and indenturing us to a life of paying off debts. The choices are nearly infinite and time is not. Experience is one of the only solid ways to know for sure if one person, place, or thing is right for you. Visit the world and see for yourself and maybe even get to know yourself a little better. This lifetime struggle is not easy, but everything improves with greater understanding of your place in the world. Find out what you want, what you need, and what it will take for you to succeed. Do not go blindly forth to do something for the sake of doing it.
The answer is never clear and probably will remain this way. Go all out and see what your made of. Write your own song and live the life you want. Help another soul along the way and harmony will come. Save all the reflection for laid back conversations and do not let the fear of the future get in the way of figuring out what to think in the present.”
– Jim A. Coyne from the Big Island, Hawai’i
