Everything heals

From time to time we feel we are doomed to fail, that chances are above and beyond us. That we won’t stand a chance. In those times it might even happen that all happens in the way we wouldn’t expect nor desire, we feel hopeless. Yet, after years we survive. We can survive losing eyesight, […]

A snapshot in time

Yesterday we were all reunited with my wife’s parents, watching videos of their youth. Seeing people 10-20 years apart can make a big different. You get too see a visual change, you see them young and then you look at who you know now. That snapshot in time takes many informations. You see a young […]

It looks like a failure until it’s not

Today I decided to re-add some silicone to my bath, there were some angles that got mold too easily and I wanted to reinforce them. I bought a tool that should ease things out so I started applying it. Line by line, row by row in my shower. The result was… a mess. I’m not […]

Force yourself

For a while I was sure that the best way to achieve something was to do it with pleasure. When you take pleasure into doing things they come out better, more polished, more refined. There’s a limit though: You can’t always be in that mood, in that passionate interest. So what will you do? Will […]

the illusion of greatness

We live in a social network world, and we tend to measure success by what we see. If we see images of an happy family, we instantly think they are happy, even if they’re not. Social networks give us the illusion that we have a window into other people lives, but we miss the fact […]

Nothing changes on new year’s eve

Every new year there’s a spike in divorces right after New Year’s Eve. It’s not because we cheat on dec 31st, it’s because we’re fooled again by the fact that we can seek a new start by changing the outside conditions. A new watch, a new job, a new wife. They can change part of […]

Embrace the unexpected

Always embrace the unexpected, the unknown. Not all things come to do harm, many are a path to a change you needed to make anyway. Embrace it, try to feel if this new road works for you, test it out before you refuse it. You might not know what’s behind the things you don’t like.

Some time alone

I never thought that going out for a walk to dispose of the trash would be so magic. But it was indeed. I look forward to it, I put my earphones on and do a small walk to the trash bins outside. 5 to 10 minutes of slow walking, usually at night, with the empty […]

Comparison hurts

We are a product of comparison. We make choices in our lives based on what other people have. We consider their well being and happiness as the result of a specific part, like work, or money, or the house. We see that our life is lacking that part and so we set on a journey […]

stolen ideas

How worth is a stolen idea? How much it values? I’d say it values almost nothing because a stolen idea is zero without execution. Yes, it might take time to accept, but an idea is just that: An idea. What gets the idea into the world is struggle, running, fatigue, effort. It’s sweat 100%. It’s […]
