Happiness and the Turtle and the Hare effect

What matters: You’ve tried your absolute best, you’re happy or this – you believe – will make you happy soon, and, if it doesn’t work out, this too shall pass.

I was rewatching Spongebob the other day. In season three, there’s this episode where Squidward goes to a graveyard and lays flowers at the grave of his hopes and dreams.

What he doesn’t realize is that he gave up on them to work in fast food. And his life could change at any moment if only he had the resolve.

Never doubt the possibility of reinvention.

And stop trying to live up to other’s expectations and believe your best is good enough.

The Turtle and the Hare got it right – have faith, for there’s no greater force than dedicated consistency.
