We’re all just simple organisms.
 
We put so much of our energy into who we think we should be. Be it purpose, honor, higher meaning, or whatever, don’t let yourself lose out on the life you have. So many of us think of our lives as these godly things. We need to “make it” or become “something great”. In reality, we’re just simple organisms, living life. We are no better than other humans or even other creatures. Our intelligence doesn’t make us better. From a certain point of view, our intelligence, organization, and ambition make us worse than all other organisms. We certainly seem to cause the most harm. But it doesn’t have to be that way. I hope we learn to live as a part of nature and don’t take ourselves so seriously all the time.
