This site is for the the anxious dabblers; the questioners; the self-overcomers. It is an exploration of life design methods, techniques, and thoughts that can shape lives. It took time for my own purposes in creating this site to be fully excavated from somewhere below the surface. However, the discovery led me to conclude that this site is, fundamentally, about optimism.
Not the kind of optimism that is about happy thoughts, and positive thinking. I like to keep my head down, and keep walking, when that optimism approaches. It’s the kind of optimism that is drawn from a deeply pessimistic starting point.
The optimism has come forth from personal frustration and existential dissatisfaction. It’s the realization that, despite the limitations, situations, or preconceptions, people have agency in choosing a path of growth. It’s an acceptance of the responsibility that we are always changing all the time, and that we must choose a positive direction to move in.
It’s a contract specifying that in order to see clearly, we need to find different perspectives. In order to find different perspectives, we need to look for them, because the good ones aren’t the low hanging fruit.
And if you’re fortunate enough to come across something that might be beneficial, maybe—if you reach out for it—it will change your life forever. This was taught to me years ago;
‘More than one science fiction story has been built around the idea of someone traveling in time and making some minute change in the past—emerging from the time machine, for example, and stepping on an ant—and then returning to find that present greatly altered by the rippling effects of that trivial act. One implication of such tales is that no act is trivial. Everything we do changes the future in one-way or another. We are all time travelers”David K Reynolds, Constructive Living
If you can search for answers, you will find some that will allow you to consider your own life, in a new light, and then use that information to change. This site is my own affirmation, exploration, and contribution that life is not only worth living, but worth living well.
If your own search has lead you here then I hope you find something worthwhile.
