About Die reis

So....I really believe that I’m not the only person feeling this way. Like Lucius Annaeus Seneca  put it: "If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable." And that's exactly my problem...I have no idea where I want to be. I’m content in the moment, but is constantly restless about the future. I have too much of a hunger for success and fulfillment to just leave it there, but never in my life have I had a clear picture of where I want to be. Therefore I want to make life about the journey. I want to appreciate life for what it is, and not let the small things pass me by without noticing them. For the "where do I want to be?"...maybe I will find out along the way.

True that – life

The difference between making choices and waiting for the next best thing.

I think that where I am at in my life is completely the result of not being able to make choices. I’m a teacher. The reason I’m a teacher? I sat behind a guy in the final class of my … Continue reading

I finally finished David Copperfield!

Instead of reading captivating “easy read” books, I always opt for old classics, 10 cm’s thick en typed in a font that is so small it is nearly illegible.
