something pablo said

I took a picture of this quote out of a book I was reading a while back. I can't for the life of me remember what the title was which probably says a lot about the book. And/or my memory is just getting awful. Anyway... I love Picasso. Who doesn't, amiright? But I'm not sure how I feel about this quote of his.

I'm a big fan of the idea that we don't always have to be go-getting and swamped down in our lives by ambition (which tends to be something that hides more fear of failure than genuine happiness, IMO). So I guess the way this quote really works for me is to recognize there isn't much in my life that needs doing before I die. All the important things are done daily like hugging my kids, telling important folks that I care, saying I love you, enjoying good company, being grateful, making love, laughing, allowing myself to be happy... because we all deserve at least that.

As for the other stuff... it can wait. Or it won't. Either way, I'm not wasting one more second on worrying about any of it. ♥

Journal/Sketch Prompt: Does this quote resonate with you or leave you wanting something more? How do you make each day count? Is there something you've been putting off that you need to finish? If you have a bucket list, what's on top?
