As though- one day all of this is going to be worth it. All the hard work and unhappiness will be melted by future days.
Should these days be as happy too? Do we really have to be unhappy to reach our goals. What other way is there?
I'm not so sure I have that good feeling inside. I used to want the path to be as difficult as possible and work harder than reasonable.
Maybe all those cells in my body have already turned over. Now I'm left with someone else. Someone with different aspirations?

Dreams. Dreams. Dreams.
What are my dreams, ...right now?
Are they still clear? Maybe I'm just sleeping.

1. All life is suffering. Life is permeated with suffering and dissatisfaction.
2. The cause of suffering is attachment. The origin of suffering lies in craving or grasping (burning thirst for the things of this world, for the survival in this world and the next, etc).
3. To end the suffering attachments must be severed / the cessation of suffering is possible through the removal of craving.
4. The means to achieve non-attachment is by following the Eight-fold Path.
The Eight-fold Path: Illustration of the ethical and ritual dimensions of Buddhism
1,2: Right Views and right Aspiration - Preliminary attitudes of aspirant, right views about reality, in accordance with the Buddha's teaching
3,4,5: Right Speech, Right Conduct, and Right Livelihood - the social and moral requirements for the Buddhist
6,7,8: Right Effort, Right Mindfulness, Right Contemplation - Central to Buddhist pragmatic ritual, culminating in contemplation as a spiritual exercise.

"In fact, his love of flowers was "too great." Once he became a fashion designer, Dior wanted them everywhere. He envisaged floral dream maidens who would populate the world, and he gave his designs evocative names. Each of his dresses embodied the grace of a rose: gentle shoulders, blossoming bust, stem-like waist and corolla-wide skirt. ..Between 1947 and 1957, over fifty designs were given names of roses. The rose, the most beautiful of flowers, ruled Dior's world."
----It sounds like we could have been great friends.

There will be time for other ones.
