Family. Career. Obligations. Distractions.
Life is busy. We have to find balance.
It's hard when the people we care about aren't around. There are little reminders everywhere.
Bad times make good stories.
I like Star Trek. I like the optimistic, forward-thinking view of humanity presented in Star Trek. I like that Star Trek: The Next Generation put a counselor on the bridge.
It might be "better to burn out than to fade away", but that doesn't mean we have to live fast and die young. It's all about burning as brightly as we can for whatever time we have.
It's easy to get caught up in outcomes, but we don't have total control over how things wind up. All we can do is focus on the process.
Pointillism is a method of painting that creates and image through a series of dots. Life works pretty much the same way.
In the end, there's really nothing to worry about.
If we could dream our entire lives over and over again, we'd probably start with some idyllic version; but we eventually add conflict and struggle. That's what allows to us grow, and we all need growth.
I've been listening to a lot of Alan Watts lectures, recently. My kids and I also hammered through both seasons of Ted Lasso. I want a little more Watts and Lasso in my life.
My daughter has a little bit of a chip on her shoulder. I do, too. I want her to use that chip and not be weighed down by it.
I have vices, but I try to limit them. I have enough flaws, and they don't need any help.
When we start out, we're all love and wonder. We bury it over time, but it's still there.
It can be safer to be "normal", but it's boring.
When we're children, we remember to play. We forget when we're older. We must remember to play.
Life is short. It's good to be protective of the things we have, but they don't last forever. We have to live our lives, make mistakes, and get hurt. We have to be protective without being precious.
Sometimes, it's hard to fall asleep. It's often hard when we really try to sleep. A lot of life is like that. We have to drop in, trust the process, and let go.
Most goals are reached through simple, repeated practices. Most obstacles are conquered the same way. It's not flashy, but that's how we eat an elephant.
Humanity is a collection of different backgrounds, experiences, perspectives. That often divides us, but we're all working to meet similar needs. That can unite us.
