Copacetic: (adj) fine; completely satisfactory
Copacetic is a word used by people who have enough money to throw at their difficulties—so it may appear to outsiders that they are problem-free.
Actually, satisfaction is a myth and those who pursue it are soon frustrated, holding their last dollar tightly in their fists.
The goal in life is not to find satisfaction, but rather, create it.
There are no circumstances on Planet Earth which come together to formulate the exact chemistry that will make you and I content. There is always a skunk in the mix, stinking up our plans, frustrating our endeavors and leaving us running out of the room screaming, to escape the stench.
We decide to be satisfied—not by compromising, but by truthfully learning the way things are, and instead of banging our heads against cement walls, creating doors to get through to the other side.
There’s an old saying which proclaims: “In whatsoever state I am, there I will be content.”
We smile at such optimism, as pessimism smothers our faith.
Nothing will ever be copacetic.
There are too many factors working at the same time, colliding into one another, creating surprising spin-offs.
What we can do is find what’s real, get our peace of mind and purposes achieved in that climate—and out-smart and out-last the cosmos.
