341. Greener Pastures

But right now, no matter the idealism, it just doesn’t seem tenable to stand up and say: ‘Now I will really prioritize Creative Project A so I can show what I am made of and do this before I die’.

No, now is the time to be patient and chip away at this bit by bit and then plan for the future. If that is the wrong choice, so be it, and it is certainly a difficult choice. But I see no other way.

Just another day in parent-land, but fortunately that is also a land with many other green pastures.

284. No Regrets Day

But it is okay that I am not trying to be a novel author anymore. As I think I have written about extensively in earlier posts, I was mostly in that game for the wrong reasons despite having some good ideas and some of the right emotions – the right drive.

It is a long story and I really don’t care to reiterate it here and now, but suffice to say: Sometimes one can really feel no regrets.

126. I Want To

It was very strange to then just write and on the one hand feel relieved that I could and on the other feel a little sick about writing about the end of the world. But it was a crucial scene. In a crucial story, at least for me personally. So I guess that makes it overall the right outcome.

112. Status Quos

I want to make money by myself but in more joyful ways than I do now. It’s not about passive income over active income, although I once not so long ago deluded myself into believing that that was all it was about.

It’s about more joyful ways of making income. Of continually raising the bar.

That’s a new status quo worth fighting for. And one that might just this time make me keep fighting long enough until I get to it.
