“There’s beautiful things in life, so when you’re suffering, it’s part of the package. You know, you look at it – we’re born and we also have to die. We know that, so it makes sense that we’re gonna be really happy and things are gonna be really f***ed up too. Just ride with it, you know. It’s like a rollercoaster ride. It’s never gonna be perfect. It’s gonna have perfect moments, and then rough spots, but it’s all worth it. Believe me. I think it is.” – Patti Smith

The above quote from the iconic Patti Smith is from a video I came across on Twitter via Jill Ettinger & Dr Frank Lipman. It’s titled Patti Smith’s Advice to the Young, but I feel Patti’s words can also serve as advice and wise reminders to those of us who may not be quite so young anymore 🙂 That’s why I wanted to share this here on the blog.

Many thanks to Jill and Dr Frank for sharing 🙂
