Confusion

2 years ago, for day 53 by Fred Rivett ⚑

Knowing what's true isn't always easy. Today it feels hard, that I know. Confusion is no fun. The haze of doubt isn't one I long for. What does it mean to doubt? To be uncertain. To not know what is true. To not know which way to turn. I hate...


Trust

2 years ago, for day 52 by Fred Rivett ⚑

What does it mean to trust someone? What does that really look like? If you trust someone, then you feel safe with them. If you trust them to do something, you're confident they will. Trust and fear are opposites. If I fear, I do not trust that the outcome will...


Commitment

2 years ago, for day 51 by Fred Rivett ⚑

Commitment is hard. For me at least. I naturally want to keep my options open. To be flexible, so I'm ready to respond to what happens tomorrow and not be tied down by what came yesterday. Overall I think this can be healthy. In many ways the ability to minimise...


Compromise

2 years ago, for day 50 by Fred Rivett ⚑

Compromise is not an attractive word. It gives off the feeling of watered down, lukewarm outcomes where neither party really wins at all. But some level of compromise is guaranteed. None of us get to live our perfect lives. No-one lives flawlessly in some utopian world where everything is exactly...


Swings

2 years ago, for day 49 by Fred Rivett ⚑

It's wild how much my mood can swing lately. One day I'll be high, at the very least at peace and contentment with the world. The next the unanswered questions confront me and corner me, pushing me down until I just want tomorrow to come, and hope it'll be better...


Trying

2 years ago, for day 48 by Fred Rivett ⚑

We aren't made to be passive. To sit back with our feet up, expecting the world to do everything for us. But we aren't made to push too hard either. I don't believe we're made to force things to happen, to fight against the elements and push our way through....


Awful

2 years ago, for day 47 by Fred Rivett ⚑

Today I'm off on a road trip. To a place I've never heard of before. With some friends. I've been looking forward to this for a while. To hit the road, get out of London for the day, see a new place, make memories, and relax in the company of...


Moments

2 years ago, for day 46 by Fred Rivett ⚑

The blank page. SchrΓΆdingers cat. This way or that. Life is a series of moments. At one moment what could happen next seems relatively limited. The next moment flows from the current one. Cause and effect. The curveball to this, is that none of us know the entirety of this...


Greener

2 years ago, for day 45 by Fred Rivett ⚑

What if the grass is greener? Is this what I should be doing? At what point do I say this is "good enough"? Weighing up decisions between this and that, it's hard. Even writing these words as I think about it, that's hard too. I guess I don't really know...


Downs

2 years ago, for day 44 by Fred Rivett ⚑

For about a month now I've been trying to work out what's next. It's been tiring trying to get a grip with it all. Alongside the countless interviews and soul searching challenges continue to go on in my personal life and I'm just looking forward to having something more solid...
