SNL makes fun of this carpe diem gone frat boy mentality:
But the fact is, either way, life is precious. We could die any day—the most powerful thing we can do with our life is to live a life of love and service, both.
The highest calling: service to higher cause, greater good. Happiness isn’t about us, only, it’s about helping make this world a better brighter funnier place–there’s so much suffering. I’m sure you do this, wonderfully, too. Don’t undersell your service.
Half the world is obsessed with self-happiness, which is making all of us less happy. Live a life of joy—and serve as an example of both self-happiness and serving others.
