Why is there always this sense that there’s something missing?

Like life is somehow, for some reason, incomplete.

Like you are somehow, for some reason, incomplete.

It doesn’t seem to matter what you do, or how much you accumulate, it’s never enough – there’s always this sense that there’s something missing.

The more you do, the bigger the void.

The more you have, the bigger the void.

You try to fill the void with whatever you can, but your efforts remain futile.

You try to escape that sense of emptiness, by burying yourself in our work.

By drinking or partying excessively,

By lashing out at our friends and family

By procrastinating, doing relatively unimportant things, just so we never have to face up to reality.

The reality that you, just like me, and everyone else is most likely in some state of denial.

In denial about what life is ultimately about.

All the while pretending we are living it, when in actuality we do everything in our power to avoid it.

Avoiding the fact that life calls on us to participate in it

Instead we make up all kinds of excuses, just so we never have to show up

And face up to the fact that this world demands something of you.

It may sound difficult, but who told you that life was meant to be easy?

Maybe the problem is that you’re always trying to take the easy way out.

The safe way.

But the truth of the matter is that the void will never be filled, until you take those parts that lay dormant within you, and finally awaken them.

  • The Decision of No Decision
    Indecision is a decision in and of itself, even though you may not recognise it as such. Your decision to do nothing – to let things play out on their own. It’s taking a back seat and waiting to see how the chips may fall.
  • Taking Your Second Chance
    It’s pointless, because history will always be confined to history. Instead it may be time to look yourself in the mirror, at the risk of not liking what you see. Because getting it right, means being honest with yourself. It comes with the brutality of having to confront your own demons, And being able and willing to take the hits. So take your second chance. Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.
  • Symphony of Sadness
    There’s a great symphony in sadness A million things conspiring beautifully together to set a sombre tone. It’s a tragedy, no doubt.  Irrational at times, often transcending words or reason....
  • Communication Is Not a One Way Street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving It All Behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
