Frustration, anger, and a sense of helplessness and hopelessness have been hanging over me for far too long now. I cannot even remember when it began. All I know is that this gloom is fast draining the spirit out of me. It has been a while since I have gotten any proper work done. Days are frittered away, searching; for what, I know not.
Despite the despair, there is one thing that I am glad I did – putting my life into words in this blog. As I pored over the archives, I saw how much I have grown as a person and how much I have achieved what I never thought I could ever accomplish. This reminds me of my response to an interview question: “My blog is a gift to myself in the future.” Indeed it is.
It is times like this that I really need some pick-me-ups. What better place to look for them than in the chronicles of my life? Again and again, as I read about similar episodes over the past three years and how I prevailed over them, I am convinced that this too shall soon pass. It will not be easy but is not impossible. Beyond doubt, The Digital Awakening is one of the best gifts I have ever given to myself.
