Charles M. Schulz and the approaching 37th birthday

My life has no purpose, no direction, no aim, no meaning, and yet I'm happy. I can't figure it out. What am I doing right?

Sometimes I lie awake at night, and wonder if my life would be different if I had to do it over... Then a voice comes to me out of the dark that says, "Boy, there's an original thought!

“Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, ‘Where have I gone wrong?’ Then a voice says to me, ‘This is going to take more than one night.'”

“Sometimes I lie awake at night and I ask, ‘Why me?’ And the voice says, ‘Nothing personal your name just happened to come up.'”

“Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, ‘Is life a multiple choice test or is it a true or false test?’ Then a voice comes out of the dark, and says: ‘We hate to tell you this, but life is a thousand word essay.'

“Sometimes I lie awake at night in bed and I ask, Is it all worth it?’ And then a voice says, ‘Who are you talking to?’ And another voice says, ‘You mean: to whom are you talking?’
And I say, ‘No wonder I lie awake at night.'”


“Never lie in bed at night asking yourself questions you can’t answer…”
