Many seem to overlook the profound wisdom that can be found within this quote. But what exactly does Jimmy Dean want to tell us with this statement? Dean points out that we cannot change the external circumstances of our lives. There are simply so many variables that we cannot influence. However, we always have the choice to make the best out of the situation, no matter what happens.
The funny thing about life is that when you get something you badly want, you no longer want it. You badly want to go on that luxury cruise when you save up enough money. But when you finally have the opportunity, you no longer want to fulfill your desire. You want to marry this beautiful person you love, but when you are ready to tie the knot, you get the wedding jitters.
At the end of every tunnel, there is a light somewhere, a light of hope and reason, and a light to guide us to the safety from the dark, to outstretched hands there. These hands hold out friendship, something everyone needs, for friendship brings a wealth much more than anything money can buy, for without this wealth, many of us would just shrivel up and die.
