    Ruminating tells me what's lost and what's hurt. I use my rumination to tell me which lost that I havent grieved. The real grief wont take a long time but it tells me that something important has lost.

    Social media is messing up with our way of approaching information. Information as any "piece" of reality. It breaks the fundamental correlation between Space and Time that makes us what we are and grasp the world as human beings, like Kant would say.

    This video more than any other has hit me in a very real way. I was a social media junkie, mainly because of my curiosity. I felt that over time I was absorbing everyone’s energies... their sadness, their anger, their fear. I made the decision to go on a social media fast. I do find myself a little lost but I have also made some other changes to my health as well. I tend to be an over thinker and it takes a while for me to transition to a new thing. I reinvented myself a few times and this one presently is the hardest - my ultimate self care. Thank you for putting it all in perspective in such a clear and heartfelt way. This year will be more present for me and I will continue despite what changes go on around me.

Your aim will take some planning but then spring into action, the rest should fall into place. Take good care.

    Narcissists are always on the hunt for something they are never going to find. They pretend to be someone else to ensnare the victim with deception, lies, pretending to feel one way, when they feel the complete opposite. A Narcissist should not be trusted and are often toxic with an excessive need for admiration, disregard for others feelings, an inability to handle any criticism and a sense of entitlement. I used to think that love could cure anything but it only fed my narc's enormous ego. It is important to be wise when dealing with a narcissist and I’m glad that cyberhackinggenius helped cloned my husband’s phone. I got access to all his dealings both on phone and social media without touching his phone. All I did was share his phone number with Cyberhackinggenius and I was able to read both his new and deleted messages from my phone through a remote link to a programmed App containing cloned cell information. My husband was a cheating Narcissist and I’m glad to find out all his secrets and infidelity with the help of cyberhackinggenius. I’m finally going through divorce with lots of evidence against him. I read all his deleted and recent chats on Whatsapp,Facebook and Instagram. Hacker Gavin also helped me in checking if my phone number is being hacked and he secured all my numbers from unauthorized access with a very powerful encryption software. I also explained to him how I got scammed online and he helped me in recovering all my lost funds to scammers online. Hacker Gavin also helped me with my Bitcoin investment and I now make 60% profit as ROI every 24 hours for my invested BTC. You can contact this great hacker “Gavin” through his email cyberhackinggenius@gmail. com and WhatsApp: +19256795146 . You can also call and text his Cellular number on +16265152216 and thank me later for this great information....

    I connect with this video so deeply. At a certain point last year, I said to myself "I'm tired of wishing my life away." I was very caught up in all of the things I had been hoping to do (finding a partner, a new job, going travelling). I spent all my time wishing my life was different, but I had to come to terms with the fact that this is the life I have. I am living my life now. Around Christmas, I read "Man's Search for Meaning" by Viktor Frankl. In it he communicates a similar conclusion to "amor fati": “We do not ask life what the meaning of life is. Life asks us, what is the meaning of your life. And life demands our answer.” Life asks us to show up for what it gives to us, it gifts us experiences to move through. It's my goal this year as well to live the life I have and fearlessly participate as wholeheartedly as I can.

    I love the 'amore fati' idea. But just like anything else in life it is difficult to embrace it for me, yo apply it. How do you manage to apply this lifestyle while having goals and objectives in life? At what point do you let the present flow and stop concerning about the future? At what point do you actually try hard to change your present and future while living ' amore fati' if the idea itself its not about that ? Would you say this is just about a healthy balance? Not just about Let the present "be" but if you can in certain way change it on your behalf and kind of change the 'amore fati' idea it is good? I guess this are open questions since all opinions on this are helpul.

Just fyi, I'm a uni student in London studying writing and for one of my modules I had to study a speech/talk/lecture someone did and argue whether or not it was effective as far as rhetoric and persuasion goes. This video A. was incredibly well thought out and presented and B. made for an excellent audio report! Thank you so much for providing this piece of positive invitational rhetoric to the world (and for giving me permission to not write about yet another TED talk!! Turns out there is such a thing as too many!) keep doing what you're doing
