Teenage years and twenties saw me drifting between things. I was always neither here nor there. Perhaps it is because of the restraints I impose on myself – to challenge my beliefs and leave my comfort zone, which I hope leads to a balanced life and moderate thoughts.
On the bright side, I was mostly happy and may seem to be able to ease into everything; but it was not without a lot of internal dialogue and doubts. Then I found a profound Stoic principle and all struggles seem to disappear.
This is one of my favourite, and possibly the most profound idea I discovered this year:
The third decade of my life I’ll live mindfully and enjoy true pleasure.
Happy New Year!
