That does it! I'm out of luck.

I'd have the status in 'the scene' again.




Seriously, there are plenty of reasons for chasing "that car (or house, or phone, or... fuck I dunno... backhoe?)", you even mentioned some.


Don't lose yourself down the rabbit hole of doing things to make other people like you.


It's an issue I grapple with every day in my uncontrollably spiralling depression, anxiety, and self-destructive thought patterns, don't let it happen to you.

Many years ago, I was also going through some damn hard confronting reality challenges with a chronically sick son, wife with breast cancer and zero family help and I just returned from East Timor. I read this and well, had an epiphany and a few beers and changed my world with my thinking. Hope this helps a little. say strong and never give up, ever.


Time - by Sir Laurence Olivier


Stand before me on the sign of infinity,
all you of the earth.
With the granting of the law of provination
comes the application of change.

I will give you the key.
And with this knowledge, please realise,
comes the responsibility of sharing it.
I will show you the way.

It's very simple. Throughout the universe
there is order.

In the movement of the planets, in nature
and in the functioning of the human mind.
A mind that is in its natural state of order,
is in harmony with the universe
and such a mind is timeless.

Your life is an expression of your mind.
You are the creator of your own Universe -
For as a human being, you are free to will whatever
state of being you desire through the use of your
thoughts and words.

There is great power there.

It can be a blessing or a curse -
It's entirely up to you.
For the quality of your life is brought about
by the quality of your thinking -
think about that.

Thoughts produce actions -
look at what you're thinking.

See the pettiness and the envy and the greed and the
fear and all the other attitudes that cause
you pain and discomfort.

Realize that the one thing you have absolute
control over is your attitude.

See the effect that it has on those around you.
For each life is linked to all life
and your words carry with them chain reactions
like a stone that is thrown into a pond.

If your thinking is in order,
your words will flow directly from the heart
creating ripples of love.

If you truly want to change your world, my friends,
you must change your thinking.

Reason is your greatest tool,
it creates an atmosphere of understanding,
which leads to caring which is love.

Choose your words with care.
Go forth ... with love.
