Existing is to striving, in my mind, as apathy is to beating the air. Both are not ideal. If we simply exist, there is no thrilling motivating force pulling us toward itself. But if we are striving, the implication is that there is struggle involved. i believe the greatest choice to be made is one of following one's heart, because when the heart leads the way, there is joy, and joy relishes the effort to accomplish something, but experiences no struggle. There are many roads on which we can walk, but there is only one which will allow us to fulfil our true potential.
