Welcome to the 73rd edition
Another week, another newsletter! I hope that you all had a great one 🤩
This will be a short edition as I’m writing this piece at 3 AM. This is definitely not the best time to be creative 😂
Reality has just sunk in. My glass is half full, but the house is half empty. Everything feels weird. This is quite violent and difficult for me to write about, but there’s no shame, just humanity, honesty, and vulnerability.
You might not know this, but I care a lot about bringing my whole self wherever I go (even if I don’t always manage to). This virtual stage is no exception. Right now, you and I share a very private space. You’re together with me somewhere deep down in my brain, where my thoughts emerge and come out (almost) unfiltered. I hope you don’t mind me bringing you here ;-)
These are challenging days. But they’re just part of life. You’ve got to wonder… What is life anyway
? To me, life is the sum of our experiences, good and bad ones, highs and lows. One day you discover that you’re going to become a parent, and you feel ecstatic. Another you see the face of your newborn for the first time and experience the most intense happiness ever. Yet another, you feel happy because a risk you took was worth it. Yet another, you feel sad and depressed because the stars just won’t align in your favor. Yet another, you go through horrendous pain as you lose loved ones and feel nostalgic. Yet another, you feel proud because your children evolve. Joy, pain, sorrow, fear, happiness, sadness, anger, rage, passion, surprise, disgust, hopelessness, enjoyment, disappointment, peace, relief, love, satisfaction, stress, etc. The number of life experiences we have the opportunity to explore is endless
. It’s just mind-blowing.
Recent days were very sad for me, but those were just bad days, not a bad life! Better ones will come!
