I realized that in this life I would not invent any new technological organism, will not catch a serial killer, will not save 50 people from the fire, write no masterpiece, will not make a 5 hour performance, will not get a Nobel Prize and will not write a music album, not own a big mall, I will not become an Olympic champion, I will not sing in the opera, I will not fly to space, maybe even my feet will never be in Saudi Arabia, probably I will not learn German, I’m not going to become a medic again, no politician either… Knowing all that, I can start sleeping more peacefully.
Now is the 21st century, we are flying in the sky, somebody even goes to space, there are people running without legs, we can see each other even if we are thousands of kilometers away, most of us believe in true love deeply in our hearts…
Let’s seek happiness not for ourselves but for others.

Are you aware of how many things we are not able to experience in this life?
