On my mind

March 23, 2018

* Today I woke up to see almost everything covered in snow, despite being the end of March. I don’t complain. I like winter.

* I’m reading a book called The Icarus Deception. I love the ideas in it. It’s about how the economic society changed over time. To be successful, different things mattered in different times. And now is the time for being authentic, original, innovative. An artist. But most people’s minds are set on the safety zone defined in the past. Now, there is a new safety zone. But our mind, used with the old things, doesn’t perceive it as safe, yet. I only read 20% of the book. I’m sure there will be a lot of many other interesting insights in it. The author is Seth Godin, a well-known blogger.

* I haven’t dreamed for a long time (in my sleep, because I daydream all the time). I should be more careful about my consciousness and what I’m thinking of as I fall asleep.

* I’m fed up with Facebook. Maybe I’ll only post things here on the blog.

Numbing out

March 15, 2018

I feel heartbroken even if my heart has not been broken – at least not these days. I had a fall out with a close member of my family. And I’ve tried to numb myself from feeling bad by binge-watching Vampire Diaries on Netflix. I deliberately took a temporary break from my life, doing just the minimum necessary work to keep things afloat.
I think it’s quite a good method of numbing yourself when you feel bad.
Now, of course, you can’t stay in that mode for too long, but it felt comforting to be able to do that and to give myself this break, knowing it’s only temporary, and that I will get back to my life and when I will, the pain will be less painful.
