How do you measure a life? Love? Happiness?
Everyone is different. Some measure their worth off of the stuff they own while others the amount of people they are surrounded by. Does the outside world make you happy or do you find your own happiness in side. When you die do you want people to look back at the things you accomplished, the things you owned or the kind of person you were?
I don't care if I never make another dime, if I'm never the most popular person. I want to be able to look back in a couple of years and see that I have done things that make me happy. Things that I am passionate about. Money or no money, recognition or no recognition, I want to do something that I believe in, that will be part of someone else's world in a positive way. I could live in a box on the street and play music for food and be happy if I could make someone's day just a little brighter with the songs I play. I could live in a cramped apartment, living on roman noodles and no furniture if I could make a film that changed someone's life.
I don't need tons of friends, I don't need tons of material things, I don't need tons of money. All I need is to be happy. To find that happiness inside myself in the projects that I do, the situations I put myself in and the decisions I make. I am well on my way to doing this and I have no idea how or when this is all going to happen for me but I know it will because I'm going to make it happen, and I'm willing to go without, do without, and be without to make it.
