The week that was (somewhat of a vanilla week) !
It’s been quite an (un)eventful week, the new decade has brought with it… new ambitions? This is the year I take back more of my mobility ( Don’t know how yet but the ambition is real 😊)
Visit Mom-in-law (ex)
Refill Bird feeder so the pesky field-mice don’t destroy it
Brush Jake ( Repeat x100)
Enjoy the sunrise
Enjoy some good music
Have a few espresso’s
I’m thankful to say , all done except for poor Jake, he only got brushed twice this week, AND he made sure every time I came home I got guilt-tripped for leaving him on his own. This is what happens when furbabies become human…
The sunrise on Friday was spectacular (every sunrise is , it’s a promise of doing everything again (a fresh page so to say) , yesterday is gone , tomorrow is still to be lived), for us in the North the clear morning with the awesome light makes the whole day ! The week ahead though looks to be cooler and less sunny
Just matches today’s daily Stoicism page !
Love it – See the world as an artist !
“It takes an artist to see that the end of life is not unlike a ripe fruit falling from its tree…”
Well I don’t feel quite like a ripening pear just yet !
Long-term vs short-term (A Seth moment)
There’s always someone who is more willing to play the short-term game than you are.
Someone who is willing to cut more corners, send a more urgent text, borrow against the future, ignore the side effects, abuse trust and corrupt the system–somehow justifying that short-term hustle with a rationalization (usually a selfish one) about how urgent it is.
On the other hand…
There’s plenty of room to win as someone who takes a longer view than the others.
Lets see what next week brings ( oh yes , no political comments as I’ve stopped watching…makes my head spin !)
