Life is cyclical, and I find we get in to trouble when we fail to let it flow


3 things happened in my life week...


I told someone I loved them for the first time.

I got to attend the wedding of two friends who's relationship I aspire to create.

... and I lost my uncle in a private plane crash - all in the span of 72 hours.


I got the news as I myself had just landed and was taxiing to our gate.

The part I find most interesting is that I wasn't sad...

... if anything, I felt that I 'should' be - but I know better than that.


This makes me think of the following:


'Desire is a contract that you make with yourself to be unhappy until you get what you want.'

- Naval Ravikant


Nothing can be the way it was, it can only be the way it is...

... and I've experienced so much loss in my life I believe I've come to peace with the inevitable.


It's why I started this edition the way that I did.


For many years I only valued monetary achievements - doing things western society thought valuable.

When I reflect back on the things I value most right now, they're the intangibles.


The moments spent with friends...

The weddings attended...

The memories created...


A few months ago I recognized a core value of mine: Never Miss


Never miss a party

Never miss an event

Never miss a birthday

Never miss a friends special moment

Never miss an anyone who means something to you's anything.

Never miss because you don't know if it's going to be the last time.

People are special.. and I feel that now more than ever.

It's this core value that I believe is the reason I choose to play life full out.

... as there is no 'take 2'... so let it rip!


P.S. Tell someone you love them today!
