2010 – it can only go up from here

Posted on January 18, 2010


i’m back! it’s been a fantastic winter break, was a lot of fun, and pain, and everything. A mini-life, lived in 30 days.

Now I’m back, “andicapped” (term coined by my dear cousin when he saw my cast) with a lot of time on my hand (no pun) thanks to my inability to play sports for a while now. OK, time to adapt. The problem is that I’ll have plenty of time to think, and I’m not sure I’m ready for it. But I can’t postpone it, I’m not an ostridge and digging my head in the sand is really not an option.

I keep thinking this is going to be a year of big decisions, but the I think better, and realize each year is one of big decisions. At least this is been the case for me in the last 5 years. Each year, big decisions. And some recurring themes. I start to think some of these themes do not reflect a stage in my life I’m at, but rather they reflect the way my life will always be.

I saw my entire close family last week, and it was a lot of fun. And realized this entire family is like this – with serious existential problems, with great energy and a fantastic love for life. Now it’s time to restart the search for the magic potion of happiness – how much life and excitement, and how much stability and predictability?

Oh yes, and I also need to start doing more to change the world. No, dear world, I haven’t forgotten about you
