In these times I find life a bit confusing. Feelings of despair, confusion and nihilism seem to be stirred together as if was the pot in which these ingredients are boiling together.

Times are difficult sure, but only because I don’t know what I want, or because I feel like I can’t do anything about changing my surroundings. But it is just that, it’s feelings. It’s not strange that I feel them either, cause I am biting my teeth at a huge apple at the moment. Relational issues, a new job and the constant pursuit of getting outside my comfort zone when I get home. No wonder I feel overwhelmed. But maybe I could do something about it?

Marcus Aurelius stated that “The universe is change, and life is opinion”. So start every day being more grateful for your life, it’s so beautiful, you have love and laughter so close to you. Enjoy the moments you have, writing, with a book or a loved one. Just sitting on the bus to work is such a tranquil moment. Actively work on your opinion about life. This is going to be a magical year, so start thinking about that.

I will learn judo, and make new friends

I will go to improv, and make new friends

I got a new job, where I will make new friends

I might get another job, where I will make new friends

Don’t worry about feeling alone now, everything is just changing and you feel disoriented and confused. That’s part of being human, and you should just embrace and accept it. Soon you will feel better, it might be even sooner than you think.
