The road forward: Acceptance, and recovery - 16/1

Woke up not feeling much, but when the thoughts of the day arrived, she showed up to. Every morning, she's in my mind. I need to try and let go of her, somehow.

It's good to know there are some friends who still care about you, as a person, as a man and as a human. I hope to return the favour at some point.


For now, I need to remember: work, play and enjoy today as if it were your last. This is not foreboding of some negative action, it's something to live by. Memento Mori and Amor Fati, to interesting concepts.

  • Memento Mori, from Latin which means "remember you must die". It reminds us life is short, and to live once's life well. To make the most of your day, week, month or year.

  • Amor Fati, or the "love of one's fate" invites us to accept what happens as it happened as we are unable to change what happened, but we can change our mindset and attitude to better accept what has happened or is happening. Taking the good with the bad so to speak.

One should aim to live with these tenets, and one will go on well.


Well, that went as well as planned. I got McDonalds... It was a low day, a very low day for me. I struggled through it.

I'm struggling to come to terms that someone can 'move on' (so to speak) so easily. I don't want to write about it, exploring it too much just brings me down.
