Hello hello and happy Monday! This week I wanted to pass along a video from Hank Green discussing a lot of the things I’ve been writing and thinking about lately. TLDR: capitalism is fake and you are cool.
I also want to toss out there that I know advice all seems stupid sometimes, and that if all you needed was advice, then the whole world would probably be fine.
But I’ve also come to realize that doesn’t mean we should stop trying. It’s not like I or anyone else has everything figured out just because we have an internet connection. I cry and scream and feel all alone sometimes and sometimes the darkness blots out all the light.
And that’s why I have to do this. I have to repeat the things that help me, even if they’re not infallible, because better sometimes is better than better never. Focusing on my life outside of work makes work more bearable like 50 percent of the time. That’s good enough for me to make a habit of it.
Growth isn’t binary and you might never reach ‘nirvana’ or perfect inner calm or whatever you’re seeking. But feeling better some of the time is a good enough reason for me to keep trying.
Peace bewitch you ❤
