Mark Twain wrote "On with the dance, let joy be unconfined". I don't know if there is any higher purpose in our lives but to seek joy.
Someone told me once that selfishness is an underrated virtue. At the time I thought that was a very odd statement but I've come to believe it is true. If we are happy and content with ourselves then we have so much more to give. Without it we have nothing.
So I intend to love, laugh, play and dance with all of my heart and live a truly joyful life!
