… Started the day stressed as hell and where I thought I actually had a new package of coffee I did not… Then it happened, I don’t care anymore, so all of a sudden 100% tranquille Björn. My inner Eeyore reminded me of my life philosophy, “It can only get worse”
Whatever I do, I can’t change a thing in my life whatever people say and do. At the end they won’t hold your back if there is a risk it will reflect bad at them.
So in the name of “Eeyoreism”, when something good is happening to you be sure the backlash will be 100% worse compared to the good feeling. It’s an easy formula… If your good mode feels like “7” on a scale 0 – 10, the pendulum will go back to the bad side as an “14”.
If you win 100 euros on a scratch ticket, be sure to find your home flooded or your washing machine taking it’s last breath. Simple Eeyoreism – also called life.
Rain, thunderstorms and elections. Kind of what this weekend offered. Rain made me more or less watch the 13th season of RuPaul from episode 1 to to the end apart form the final episode, still pending to watch this week.
And where is my manners? Good Morning:
And of course the Covid in France update:
And today Monday we wait for what’s going to happen in Sweden, will the Government fall or will they manage to stay?
Sunday 22nd of November 2020, not much to tell, again… Covid cases and nothing to watch on Netflix. Minor panic for the upcoming conference and too many hurdles to climb and decisions to make. Weekends too short to feel relaxed.
Now, when I wake up in the morning it is actually dark more or less until I leave for the bus and I really meet the morning light when I reach work (picture).
Working through my photo library from my years in Paris I notice that the sunlight situation more or less the same in late August, so also the change of the colors of the trees but it looks like the amount of degrees in the early morning is lower 2018. People actually dress like early winter days back in Stockholm. And today the bus had the heat on… Awful, it was like stepping into a pre-heated sauna.
But with a fantastic summer behind us we are most likely to suffer a cold and long winter, that is Ior’ism (Eeyoreism) the only “religion” I can sign off on. Winnie the Poohs donkey friend and his “it can only get worse” insight really is the only thing you can be sure of.
If a good thing is “10” you know that what will come after is a bad “20”. All good things happening in your life will hit you back times two. Knowing this, as Ior (Eeyore), you will never be disappointed in life and soon you will see you are ready to follow a cartoon donkey and his views on life, the glass in always half empty, after rain it comes more rain even if it might be sun for a second or two…
