Happiness will always be an illusion when you’re too afraid to be happy, and can’t appreciate all the small things happening around just for you.
Once you spot a person who is Mad, well, a Mad person, whom you get to know at some point of your life- and for one reason or another you decided to hang out with that Mad person. Be sure that soon you’ll find many other seemingly Mad people around you, like it or not.
At this point, you’ve choice whether you want to keep up, and become the Maddest- or, run away. Will you be a smart lad/lass, thinking you will pretend to enjoy the Madness? Just for a while?
Pretty soon you won’t have to pretend. Because, no matter how strong your sanity you think you’ve- it will pass, sooner or later.
And, my dear fellow, you will become yet another Mad person. Just like the others- welcome to the Mad world.
I literally can’t remember when was the last time that I’d to visit doctors for my own health issue. And then, as far as I can squish memories, there were couple of headache in every few months- due to less-sleep, working on different monitors etc, or extra long sleeps- :p. Might be a few food-poison-related issues once in, may be six months, or in a year! There were most likely one, or two half-day-long-fever that tried to convince my body to stay longer but couldn’t. None of ’em warrant a call to doctors.

Sharing this due to my nature of looking at things in the longer term. You need to live on the moments and so on- however, how these small pieces of events tied together in a loop, and build something over the years vs decades are something you need to be thoughtful about.
You’re an artist when your day to day led by your life, and occasionally you disrupt it to go to the direction based on your needs and wants.
Rock on, you only live once. :))
When you don’t expect anything in return and keep doing your best, suddenly the best of the best things happen for you.
Life is about making memories so you can have a smile in your alone time. The more you’ve such memories, the more successful you are.
There are times we tend to prioritize many different focus in our life but end of the day when we get to have self-time, it ends well only with a smile, or else the days worth nothing.
