It is often so that things don’t just disappear.

They might move a little bit farther.

They might step away from the sun.

They might hide behind a bigger thing.

They might chase you for a while.

They might try on a new outfit.

But they will still be there and you will meet them again.

The only thing you can do is to train yourself to live with them, treat them as part of the landscape, learn to give them the appropriate perspective.

There’s nothing else.


Success, just like failure, can make you feel great or make you feel bad.

I imagine the difference is how proud you are of the effort you put in and how much you treated others according to your values while getting there.

And if you think about it, that makes the relevance of success or failure null.

Journey over destination.

Zeros and Ones

There are no 0s.

There are no 1s.

There are infinite numbers in between.

Even when you are at your highest, that’s never absolute, total, and permanent. Similarly, even when you are at your lowest, that’s never hopeless, useless, and irreparable.

Life is an irregular alternation of ups and downs, where ups and downs get continually redefined.

It’s in that space that we need to find contentment, not at the extremes.
