Say hello wave goodbye

It's funny... the past 5 years I've been trying to perfect my cover letter for job applications. Now, I'm trying to find the perfect words to do the very opposite. Some may say it's too soon, but the present is the only right time to do what makes you happy. The purpose in life should be to minimize the number of times you sacrifice happiness and if a sacrifice should be made, it should be made for the sake of happiness because as all the adages go, 'life is too short'.

Cake

Whoever said you can't have your cake and eat it too was wrong. It's all about perspective.

Clarity

It took a while, but now I see. Happiness is the key to success in life so I've decided to choose the path of least resistance because a person can and should be happy. Sacrifices should only be made when it is the only option available and right now happiness is an option so for once I'm going to choose it.

Cost-benefit analysis.

I need one of those done on my life. Honestly, confusion befalls me. I'm reminded of that time I wanted to quit my coffee-shop job after a day, but I decided to stick it out because I hadn't given it a fair chance yet. So would me wanting to quit now mean that I'm giving up too easily? If I choose to persevere, would I just be left with another scar? I'm 24, just starting up my career, have this shiny new job, have a long-distance relationship with everyone I deeply care about, and may possibly be offered admission into grad schools. So what do I do? Persevere & build my career and seize this opportunity that I sit upon right now? Or do I finally choose something that makes me simply 'happy'? Would leaving now be 'too early'? What's a fair amount of time to give this thing a good chance? I feel like pursuing happiness is a selfish thing, yet I'm the one who's living for myself, so of course I need to be selfish, right? Or would it simply be a foolish thing to do? I don't know what's right anymore. 'Follow your heart'... 'do what makes you happy'... I don't feel like it's that simple, but maybe that's the problem.
