Everything that’s great about this city is outside your door.

The futile journey of trying to find meaning on an island

Boredom is a beautiful thing.

It’s a necessary part of balance that keeps our brains sharp and keeps our souls hungry.

But when our days are filled with too much formlessness, too many empty spaces and thundering silences and social voids and three day stretches where we don’t even use our mouths and interact with other human beings, that’s a recipe for sadness.

Schumer’s memoir on her journey as a young comedian says it best:

Talking about yourself all day long leaves you with a kind of emptiness that’s hard to describe.

That’s no joke. The paralyzing fear of having nothing to lean against, the futile journey of trying to find meaning on an island, it’s existentially exhausting.

What’s more, obsessing about the quality of our life actually degrades the quality of your life. And unless we find multiple ways to release ourselves from the burden of self, we’ll only dive down deeper into the murky pool of emptiness.

It’s like our landlord told us when we first moved to the neighborhood.

Everything that’s great about this city is outside your door.

LET ME ASK YA THIS…
Are you growing tired of your long empty days?
