Creative Destruction Part 2: Personal life edition

My loyal readers (probably just me...), might remember last year's post on Creative Destruction: Executive Job Edition... Turns out I actually believe the theory holds beyond just work. It even applies to people's personal lives.

At least, right now I feel I'm going through precisely that vortex. Everything I believed in, is no longer valid, and everything I was hoping for is now beyond my grasp. What got me to this point? Creative destruction. The hope and belief that out of this dark hole will emerge new opportunities, dreams and hopes. Essentially the opportunity for a new life comes out from the missed opportunities of my old self.

Right now I'm in the beginning of my journey down my rabbit hole. But as time goes by I hope to start turning dreams into reality again. That's the only way to live. Expecting that the future WILL get better, no matter how bad it might look today.

Here's hoping that the theory holds.

Oh, Mike. From personal experience, I can say that it *WILL* absolutely get better. It'll be so much better than you ever could imagine! I have complete confidence in you - I think you've got "the touch" on your side working in your favor. I'm here to talk anytime!

I think you are 100% right... with one caveat (maybe that means you are only 99.9% right, then..:-P): what you hoped for, the essence of it -maybe not the players or the circumstances- may be closer than you think.

Como tu mismo das a entender, la esperanza como un fenix, nace de escombros y cenizas:)

Nietzche said "one must still have chaos in oneself, to give birth to a dancing star..." enjoy the chaos for what it's worth... its the only way to start dancing again.

Buen viaje!
