A Snippet from My Chaotic Mind

It’s curious how some truths creep up on you during the lulls of the day, like how you feel too much and could have easily destroyed yourself, if you let it.

How fragile are the threads holding you together, how temporary. How every minute feels like you’re buying time.

And sometimes how rare moments, like eating ice cream under the tropical sun without any care in the world, seem like tempting fate. The humid air carrying little warnings: be careful.

Don’t be too happy or there will be hell to pay later.

  1. There is still no generally accepted theory about the meaning of John Lennons “Happiness is a warm gun”. Obviously, he himself tried hard to lead everyone astray by saying “I just thought it was a fantastic, insane thing to say. A warm gun means you just shot something.” I guess that he had in mind the ambivalence of momentary euphoria and delayed disillusion /dɪsɪˈluːʒ(ə)n/

    1. Hi, Michael. How are you? I hope you’re doing well. Apologies because I haven’t been punctual in responding to comments around here lately. 🙂

      Those John Lennon quotes invites a lot of pondering. This – “ambivalence of momentary euphoria and delayed” disillusion” – is something I’d like to quote and use in my future posts. May I borrow them? With credits, of course.

  2. Hi Mitch, I hope you are doing fine and that you can appreciate the moments of happiness more than the days of wasted effort. Of course I would be honoured if you mention me in a future blog. But actually, I just reworded what many others probably also came up with. But don’t forget to give credits to John Lennon, or the lawyers of Polydor records will sue you ;-/


  3. This really got me thinking! I’ve felt like this many times in my life. “Don’t be too happy or Life will make you pay dearly for it.” Those were the exact words that my feelings told me. Thank you so much for the realness of this post!

      1. You’re very welcome. When I was young, I felt that way all the time. But as I’ve gotten older I’ve grown more determined to fight that fear, be happy anyway, and not worry about things that haven’t happened yet. I’m a lot less stressed these ways.

      2. That’s really the best way to deal with that irrational fear. I’m trying to do the same. After all, we can only be certain of uncertanties and it’s better to savour every happiness that goes our way. 💙
