MORE FROM THE DESK OF DOCTOR B. D. SEPTIVE: The Self-Helpiest of all Self-Help Gurus
You're asking who you are, why you're here, and what difference does it make? Well, let me tell you something, Bub. It makes a lot of difference. It's the difference between going to bed and going to school. Between going to dinner and going to the woodshed. Between going to a lost, barren land or the City of Good Pie. The fork in the road is right in front of you, right there on the table. So, grab it. No, not that one. That's the salad fork.
Remember, we are all here for a reason. Well, we're not all here for the same reason. If someone says "we're all here for a reason" that's only one reason and that's not enough for everybody. You have to find your own reason. It's not your job to find all the reasons why everybody else is here. That could take forever and the money you spend on parking alone could leave you bankrupt. I'm pretty sure going bankrupt is not the reason you're here. Although it could be, depending on the stock market and how many politicians you own.
Maybe you're here to help others who are less fortunate. Maybe you're here to accept help from those who are more fortunate. Maybe you're here to compose the perfect haiku. You won't know the answer until you ask yourself the question and keep asking yourself the question every single day.
