the strangest thing about progress is that it looks different to everyone. for me, I haven’t had a job for almost four months now. I got approved to drive for Uber, which I’m going to do to bring in some money while I’m functionally unemployed. but when I was employed, driving for Uber was the bottom of the barrel from where I was standing.
I got engaged, as well. while unemployed. which many people have told me is a horrible idea. but I think it’s a good idea. I’m running out of money and quickly running out of patience, but I thought about it, and I think I made the right decision.
progress happens a little bit at a time. sometimes we don’t even see it happening. every day, I wake up a little closer towards my goals, and it often doesn’t feel like it thanks primarily to some delicious mental conditions which I’ve lived with for years, but I’m changing those too…
progress comes in many forms. today, it was in the form of cleaning out my car to drive for Uber. tomorrow, it might be in the form of drinking more water. the next day, it might just be in the form of stopping to smell the roses. maybe literally.
the point is, and I’ll borrow from history here:
it does not matter how slowly you go, so long as you do not stop.Confucius
