What You Must Do

“You mustn’t wish for another life. 
You mustn’t want to be somebody else. 
What you must do is this:
“Rejoice evermore. 
Pray without ceasing.
 In everything give thanks.” 
I am not all the way capable of so much,
 but those are the right instructions.”

~ Wendell Berry in Hannah Coulter
