What do we do when life's certainties aren't certain anymore?
Last Update: Jan 27, 2022
A Wealthy Affiliate member, who I shan't embarrass by naming, said in a very positive post not too long ago, that we should celebrate our past achievements and pat ousrselves in the back for our successes.
I somewhat dismissed this post, commenting that not everyone was successful, and we should always be looking forward. I apologize to that member for being so rude (you know who you are).
I am now curently reflecting on the past couple of years.
Although the pandemic years were relatively successful for me, I do think we should all be thankful for how much we have achieved through uncertain, trying times. We should try to accept change with its enevitability and do out best whatever circumstances arise.
"The only two things we can be certain of, are death and taxes," so said Benjamin Franklin a long time ago.
Starbucks, Amazon and similar large corporations don't appear to pay taxes anymore. This is because Western governments deem their corporate business practices to benefit society positively through jobs, societal cohesion etc. (or shouldn't we go there?)
Elon Musk, through AI and the cyber nightmare it will unfold, sees us all uploading our consiousnesses and brains, and living forever.
Other cryogenically obsessed types froze their bodies following their demise with the certain knowledge that when scientists discover how we can live forever, it will simply take a few tweaks to unfreeze, and carry on.
Forgive me, the UK's miserable weather is bringing my existential, stoic, and above all cynical side to the fore.
I wish everybody every success in whatever direction they wish to travel.
I have found from experience that to be thankful at first is difficult. I found that my mind was so negative that I found nothing to be thankful for. I then had to have heart surgery, my perspective changed overnight. I hope you do not have anything so drastic to change to a positive mindset. There is so much to be thankful for daily.
Always look on the sunny side of life.

Kevin, keep pursuing your passion! Don't worry about living forever, worry about living for each new day we are granted! It's much easier that way, my friend!
