Amy Winehouse: Moody’s Mood for Love

So sad to hear that she died at age 27. This wonderful song – and her beautiful voice – really makes me realise how much talent she had. So sad…

Reinventing myself…

Since I was given a pension last year (because of health issues) it has been like losing my purpose in life.  Obviously, no one needs me to carry out any kind of job – I just receive a small amount of money which is put into my account every month.

Maybe I should just be happy about it? Others have to work while I can spend my days exactly as I please. But believe me, it’s not a good feeling! I have felt useless. Somehow I guess all human beings want to be of use to society. It’s deeply rooted in us  – even if it is just a consequence of our upbringing?

Anyway, my life has felt very empty for the past year. I feel like I have to reinvent myself – and get a life again. A completely different life – but a LIFE…

Then the other day, I went to a course with the topic of taking responsibility for your own life. I “complained” about being unable to find a purpose with my life – but I was “corrected”. I was told that it was OK for me just to enjoy life and BE myself.

It put a lot of my thoughts into a new perspective. Yes, of course, it is all right just to be ME and enjoy life as it is.  

A new realisation has dawned upon me…

Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which one has overcome while trying to succeed.
