Okay, so maybe it isn’t love. Maybe it is a frantic type of infatuation right now. I’ve stumbled upon his “School of Life” series after making it a point of cancelling my Netflix account and ignoring Amazon Prime Video.
For those of you who don’t know him, he is a modern philosopher who has written many books about how to interpret life, love, etc.
The below are certain points he’s made which resonated with me:
- In being with someone you are subjecting two imperfect human beings together filled with childhood flaws and such, but teaching each other comes off as criticism because no one is really close enough nor invested enough to care about you on that level (sometimes, not even your own family and especially not your flings).
- We should treat our significant others like they are babies not with condescension, but more with generosity in interpretation regarding their actions. You do not see the actions of your significant others as punitive or evil, but with a lot of room for forgiveness.
- Although you may disagree with religion, they got it right with the idea of repetition. We naturally forget again and again how to behave or sensor or forgive and religion as a school of thought knows this is our behavior and acts accordingly.
- Sulking is possible because we have the delusional idea that those who love us can read our minds.
After writing this post, I feel like I don’t know if I want to keep this blog as Passiveincomemarathon.com. More like whateversonmymind.com.
Anyway, I’ve found that by not binge watching shows – I’m watching real people.
Also, besides the adventures I try to embark upon (went to Havasupai last weekend, going to hike Half Dome the next), I’m punctured by days of silence and I get irritated by unexpected calls. It MIGHT be because I am on the end of my period (which coincides with when I post, as well). But I do feel like I’m on my own a lot. Sure I interact with many people (through texting) daily but for the most part, verbally I’m talking to no one. And it feels very isolating.
For the past few months I:
Rock climbed at Grass Valley Lake
Rock climbed/camped at Owens River Gorge
Bouldered at the Sads
Went to Havasupai in Arizona to see some waterfalls
What I observed… my business grew more when I am away and die if I have more of a hand in it. WTF.
Goals for the future:
Grow auto business to 40K/month. (I’ve neglected this business severely and I gotta build it back).
Restart Amazon FBA business and try to grow it to a modest 2-3K/month.
Revamp subscription based business, focus more on this business for June and July.
Invest in stocks more.
I guess that’s all. I will let you know if I accomplish these goals or fall flat on my face.
I would write more, but I will do that… another day.
Keep on, Keepin’ on, folks.
