Tonight I feel content. Unphased.
Its a rare feeling, as I'm an anxious, high strung type. I clench when my wife so much as gasps, preparing myself for - whatever. Usually it's nothing worthy of my reaction. But I'm at peace, and I wish I could always be this way. Stoic, not reactionary but calmly but sternly correcting my toddler when necessary, not putting thought or fear or anger or stress into it but naturally.
The moment feels right, im in the right place I need to be and i can handle anything that comes my way. But yet I can feel its a fleeting, highly fragile state.
Every few months I feel this way, usually after a few beers, on a calm but not necessarily quiet rainy or chilly night. Today completely sober, after a week straight of rain. Its like the emotional equivalent of a "flow" state.
Anyone know what im talking about? I only wish to name it and research so I might experience it more often.
"Wrongdoing" is right up there with "problematic" in terms of self righteous word choices.
Maybe philosophy itself rubs me the wrong way.
Maybe I'm just nihilistic and arrogant enough to think I'm above the finger wagging, but life gets a lot more fun when you stop worrying so much about right and wrong, and embrace the scoundrel inside you.
I'm not the person you responded to, but this was pretty uplifting to read.
I don't have friends in real life who would be so sympathetic, and here you are spending so much time giving encouragement to a stranger (online!)
Gives me hope. And makes me want to stick around Hubski (I am also new)
The headline is meaningless and the article not much better.
"New Study Concludes No Safe Level of Roller Coasters"
"New Study Concludes No Safe Level of Driving"
"New Study Concludes No Safe Level of Skateboarding"
Life = risk. It's up to each of us to try to understand the risks of what we are doing and manage them as we see fit. I think this is where YOLO comes from, a response to the large groups of people too afraid to try anything interesting because there is a small chance of negative results.
I entered so many usernames in that little box before settling on this one. I'm indecisive and I spend way too much time on things that boil down to vanity. Now that I made it past that hurdle, I can say I'm happy to be here.
One question - why does the Primer cut off abruptly mid sentence? Am I missing something, maybe I already failed the community riddle?
