There are many great, positive aspects of this world that we as humans naturally appreciate. However, no matter how close to perfection some thing may be, nothing will ever be supported and loved by every single person in the world. There will always be at least, one person who will oppose or look down upon an idea or an object. No matter how perfect something seems to be, there will always be an opposer, and as long as there are opposers, there will always be a reason to make ourselves better. A reason to make room for progress. I think that's why God made nothing, literally, perfect. So that people would keep working... So that they would keep trying, knowing that they'll always have space to do better. Shine brighter.
So for God, I will strive to be better than the person I was the day before. If I have anything to live for, it's for the one being that gave me this life, this family, this... Privilege. This privilege to be alive.
"When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider: God has made the one as well as the other. Therefore, a man cannot discover anything about his future." -Ecclesiastes 7:14
