As usual, every 100 posts, here are some reflections about where I have been for the last 100 days – and some about where I am going.
Due to the waves that have crashed in early-mid October so to speak (more on that on these post dates) this ‘look back’ is probably more going to be a ‘look forward’, because so much is still uncertain at the time of writing this post (mid October).… Read more
Next up after Meaning and Purpose it is natural to zoom in, as far as it is possible, on what I have come to know about myself in 2017 that could be particularly relevant to keep in mind for the coming year.
Some of it is repetition, because it overlaps with other Uplifting Reflections.… Read more
Continuing my attempt to zoom in, over several posts, on what is and should be important in 2018, I will now wrestle a bit with Meaning and Purpose.
I have had a look at the previous conclusions from about 6 months back and the ones below seem the most resonant for the coming year:
- I believe that it is not really possible anymore, as I believed when I was younger, to really change the world in my lifetime only contribute to some level of flow of positive change.

Usually I would have expected to start New Year with a post that summed up Nearly Everything and set out the direction for the, well, new year. At least that is what I wished for.
But as you know I have a backlog of posts and I have therefore decided to use the days until catch-up trying to zoom in on the most important conclusions from recent writings.… Read more
Not it is not new year’s evening. It is actually Jan 6, when this is being written.
You know the story by now: I have been swamped, or feeling like that recently, so therefore we travel back and take the time to do a series of list posts again. I figure they might do some good in giving me a chance to review and reflect deeper on where I have been and where I am going before that big sum-up in post no.… Read more
Welcome back to Jan 6, when this is actually written.
And I have been swamped, or feeling like that recently, so therefore we travel back and take the time to do a series of list posts again – although I officially hate these animals. But I figure they might do some good in giving me a chance to review and reflect deeper on where I have been and where I am going before that big sum-up in post no.… Read more
Everything has … slipped. Not because something catastrophic has happened, mind you, just the daily whirl of baby-care, looking for work, relationship maintenance and Everything Else.
So this is actually written on Jan 6, and therefore it is time to do a series of list posts again – although I officially hate these animals.… Read more
There is no quick fix …
… to my income situation, to earning more money in more enjoyable ways than doing webdesign for more or less tiresome clients that I have to hunt down every day.
Sometimes I try, though, and think I can come up with a way to fix it all – if I Just Find the Right Strategy.… Read more
What a morning – writing while trying to fix a clogged toilet, fix breakfast for my pregnant girlfriend, fix shopping, fix everything. But I got written a bit for my Story. And soon on to the accounting. I’m glad I delayed that last part until I had the Story-bit done.
Felt like doing another list-reflection post, then about time and Ageing.… Read more
1) We have so many problems finding out how ‘life works’ that it often feels like somebody ‘hid the manual’. So what if it’s annoying that somebody ‘hid’ the good parts of life? The knowledge of how to make life work better right away? It’s only annoying if you believe that that which makes life good cannot ever be found.… Read more
