+ what are you doing with your life? +

I think everyone should read this post, from ChelseaTalksSmack.

My back up plan? I don't have a f*cking back up plan, because when you things get hard, which they always do- in any profession, that "back up plan" BECOMES the plan. It's a cowardly way of giving up.

the rest is here...

"Seeing our lives as contributing to a valued larger whole is one of the things that gives them a point in our own eyes. The morally good person cares about the goodness of what happens in the world and not just about the goodness of his own actions. If a right action can be seen as contributing to some great good, that increases the importance it has for him. Conversely, if he thinks that things will turn out badly no matter what he does, and especially if he thinks that the long-range effects of right action are about as likely to be bad as good, that will diminish the emotional attraction that duty exerts on him. Having to regard it as very likely that the history of the universe will not be good on the whole, no matter what one does, seems apt to induce a cynical sense of futility about the moral life, undermining one's moral resolve and one's interest in moral considerations." - Robert Merrihew Adams b.1937
