The four stages of ego.
The four stages of ego.
I just ended a whole month without a smartphone. My relationship with cellphones has always been an “it’s complicated” one. I had my first phone at 18, a dumb one until 22 and finally got a smartphone when my coworkers gave me a one out of despair. And even now, with this awesome piece of technology in my pocket I still don’t have an internet plan.
If anyone is proud with the last iPhone, I personally used to show off to the fact that I don’t own a one. I hate smartphones.
Last night, I read “The End of The Night” a book about light pollution from artificial lighting. While reading it I remember a little story from my childhood. My old brother had some friends over for the night and they were watching a horror movie. It was way too scary and I wanted to go to sleep but the corridor was dark. I asked my brother to come with me but he and his friends made fun of me. I ended up with two choices, keep watching the horror movie or go into the dark, full of my imaginary bogeyman.
So it’s saturday night and I’m doing nothing. Like absolutely nothing. At first I was a bit empty. Like nothing is going on tonight come on I’m 23. Ain’t I suppose to have the time of my life for god sake.
Two days ago I had the opportunity to attempt the vision and goals workshop at Lululemon.
Write down what you STAND FOR on this planet. Find it, breathe it, live it. If you were to die tomorrow you would know that this body, this life was not in vain as you stood for this purpose through all obstacles. You stood ALL IN on life.
This is part of my manifesto, values that I follow. Somewhere I can go to and refer in case I’m having trouble making decisions.
The first value is: Be Brutally Honest
2015 is almost over and I had some great epiphany during this year. I like to take some time to reflect every 3-6 month with myself, MY LIFE (and not other people vision on life).
