- Henry David Thoreau
I sometimes read for people who have really made a mess of things, and who are now regretting it. I wish I could tell them all that being sorry is enough to undo all they’ve done. Unfortunately, that’s not usually the case, because most people don’t awaken when they’re making big mistakes until things are irreversibly wrecked: their spouse has walked out the door, they’ve been fired, they’ve hit rock bottom. The good news is that sometimes it’s the bottom that saves us. When we hit it, our passion for life is jolted awake, and we realize how much we really do love life, and what we’re willing to do to find happiness.
