Genies: A Late Night Exchange

From a friend:

“I truly and deeply believe that nothing happens for a reason. And that nothing means anything unless you want it to. And that happiness is almost always a choice. And the only thing that matters is being the kind of person you want to be.”

– the genie at the bottom of my bottle of wine

And my reply:

‎”I truly and profoundly believe that everything happens for no inherent reason at all. And that most things don’t mean anything, even WHEN you want them to. Happiness is absolutely a choice, but your choosing does not make it inevitable. Your choosing simply makes it possible. Being the kind of person you want to be matters, but not more than understanding why you want to be that person to begin with. The only thing that matters is knowing that there is never only one thing that matters.”
