When uncertain, decide beyond the horizon

Good evening Axelerant,

Gotta love the Escape button. NOT! I was on the final revision of this note, and poof it disappeared.

So, the premise is this. I’ve decided to look further beyond this uncertain time and make decisions that I’m reasonably sure about. And, here’s the message I’ve been sharing with family and peers today about doing so.

I’ve booked a flat in Taipei until May end. On July 31st, I’ll fly back to the United States to see my kids in Portland, Maine. On January 2nd, 2021, I’ll return to Marseille France to wrap up my French studies at Alliance Française there. I’m feeling so much better with finally having travel plans in my future. The lack of them was stressful.

With this, I’m saying yes to living on my own again, no roommates, and someplace where I can quickly go hiking, even before work without having to drive.

Next, I’ve got a probable date for hugging my kids. And I figure to hold them until they wriggle free, and then we’ll go swimming.

Lastly, I’m picking up where I left off of my French studies from two-years back. I had intended to relocate to a francophile place this summer with my family. I still want such for myself, and so I’m back to working on it.

And, this mindset shift is by listening upon self-development podcasts.

We can make certainty in uncertain times by looking past now, to something beyond what we’d typically look at.

So for those of you, like me, battling the stress, the depression, the frustration; I feel for you as I go through them too. You can accept that we can’t change this moment except for how we approach it. And we can change how we’ll deal with the future.

Luck!

Michael
