Seasons of Life
I'm currently suffering from the depressing suspicion that I'm not on a new season at all; my life has basically gone into re-runs.
("Oh, yeah! This was the episode where he was trying to finish a project and his boss kept interrupting him to test something in a completely different program! I remember that one.")
I mean, we're doing okay. We have food, clothing, shelter, and a working marriage. We even have some money to spend on frivolities. This isn't any sort of acute crisis. It's just a recurrent feeling that I'm not making any sort of progress; that I'm stalled, blocked, walled in. I can do enough to keep up, but only barely. I can't seem to get ahead.
I probably need more sleep. Maybe some major life changes, too. (I can work on those in my copious spare time, right?) I dunno. We'll see.

Life isn't about progress, Michael. Life *is* about change but change isn't continual. If you're in a period of relative stasis now and not in a bad way, take it for what it is and enjoy it. Change will come sooner or later, some good and some bad.
This has been "Advice from a stoic." We now return you to your regularly scheduled program, "Ennui."
I agree with August. That is some great advice which I will also be taking for myself! :)ReplyDelete
