2 years ago, for day 63 by Fred Rivett āš”

This morning I've sat in front of my computer for quite a while, wondering which parts of me to share with you. There's always a lot to write about. The question is, what do I want to write about? And what am I ready to? Right now my schedule is...


Expectations

2 years ago, for day 62 by Fred Rivett āš”

It's funny how our expectations shape our interpretations. Like, if you expect a pay rise, but you don't get it, then you're disappointed at the outcome. But if you have no expectation of a pay rise, then when you don't get it, nothing's changed. I guess that's the argument of...


Disappointment

2 years ago, for day 61 by Fred Rivett āš”

It's easy to become disappointed. All that requires is some form of expectation above pessimism. All it takes is to have some hope, and whether acknowledged or not, we all have hopes. Disappointment then comes to us all. Things don't pan out as we expected. We hope for an outcome,...


Control

2 years ago, for day 60 by Fred Rivett āš”

Why is it that at 1am I just can't get to sleep, despite having been lying there for over two hours, yet at 9am, 2 hours past my alarm that didn't go off, I could sleep forever? Chemicals in the brain and all that is the correct answer, I guess....


Rushing

2 years ago, for day 59 by Fred Rivett āš”

Good morning from Stockholm. It's a little chilly here, with some snow still on the ground in areas, hinting at the aftermath of a Scandinavian winter that once was. Yesterday was a good, yet strange day. Waking up at 3:30am after 4 hours sleep, a half hour walk, one hour...


Iā€™m on a plane right now

2 years ago, for day 58 by Fred Rivett āš”

Iā€™m writing this on my phone, on a plane at 6am. 7 hours ago I booked a flight to Stockholm, and 4 hours of sleep later, Iā€™m about to jet off. I planned on planning better. Like, my intention was to book a trip earlier in the day yesterday, not...


This is my confession

2 years ago, for day 57 by Fred Rivett āš”

At the start of the year, I became part of another statistic. I joined the gym and contributed to the early year gym peak. I'm sorry. This is my confession. I've shown up 16 times over the past 6 weeks or so. I can't help but imagine the anxiety I've...


Focus

2 years ago, for day 56 by Fred Rivett āš”

One of my favourite quotes I aim to live by is from the late Nelson Mandela, "may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears." This quote is all about where we put our focus. Do we focus on what could go right, on what we hope will come about,...


Time

2 years ago, for day 55 by Fred Rivett āš”

I wasn't in the best of moods yesterday. That's a long story for another time, but I spent most of the day pretty pissed off in all honesty. So when it came to the evening, and late evening at that, and a mate of mine was having some friends over,...


Write

2 years ago, for day 54 by Fred Rivett āš”

I don't really want to write anything today. I kind of just want to be. So this probably isn't going to be very good. You have been warned. Writing has become a habit now, and I'm generally finding it easier to take thoughts and splurge them into words. The other...
