RE: Psychology Addict # 65 | Self-Awareness: Investigating the Past & Making New Year’s Resolutions.

2019 is not the best year for me, but next year will be better.

This:

when our mind is less anxious or stressed we obtain more clarity to decide what we want to achieve, we gain more lucidity to direct our path.

True!

Also about the acceptance of things that cannot be change and determination to change those that are changeable, this is the key of happiness. (I’ve just finish reading Sisifus by Camus and find that your post is very relatable in this matter).

So, thank you for sharing this. :)

It looks like we're both drawn to existentialism! There are many parallels between Camus' The Myth of Sisyphus and the message conveyed by the Stoics: How (and why) to live with dignity and truthfulness in a world that lacks meaning and predictability? These are important questions to ask.

It pleases very much you found some value in this post, thank you for taking the time to let me know about it. I must say I respect your resilience 'next year will be a better year, despite the hiccups this one brought!'. That's the spirit! :) I wish you a great 2020.

All the best,
Abigail.

Yes, those questions are really important to ask, and we will always searching for that meaning as we live. Funny how those questions reminds me of people from my calm and warm hometown in Jogjakarta. I’ll be there for Christmas, and meet that peaceful community, where people live with truthfulness, dignity and happy. Maybe not rich by financial or monetary standard, but happy and full.

I wish you have a great Christmas and New Year too.
Warm regards from Jakarta.
