at the end of the day

Despite my insane levels of anxiety, unpredictable insomnia, and chronically stupid decision making, at the end of the day or night (there's no beginning or end for me), I'm grateful for so many things.

I'll end with a quotation from one of my favourite novels, Sherwood Anderson's Winesburg, Ohio:

"It was his notion that the moment one of the people took one of the truths to himself, called it his truth, and tried to live by it, he became a grotesque and the truth he embraced became a falsehood."

It's a beautiful novel that intricately captures the depth and complexity of human emotion, frailty, and strength.


  1. Being grateful in these times are so hard. It's overlooked an awful lot. Kudos for being grateful! It makes the bigger things in life more worthwhile.

  2. Thanks, Zeebs!
    Yes, while I can't stand when people are overly optimistic, neither can I stand people who are overly pessimistic and refuse to be grateful for what they do have.

  3. Yes. Isn't it a great read!
