    To paraphrase a quote from Churchill "It's not the end, it's not even the beginning of the end, but it's the end of the beginning"

    There comes a stage in life where it seems like you've reached the peak and you can't go up any further and that the only way remaining is down. But that's not really true. You may not move up in the current mountain, but there's nothing stopping you from hopping to another mountain to scale.

    Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life. Make the most of it

    Ok, so not practical advice but wth, I'm looking for answers too...

    Ok, after reading my last post it felt too empty so here's a thought.

    What legacy do you intend to leave behind after you are no longer in this world? What do you wish people to remember you by? Is it by passing your genes to your children? Or do you want to create a life work that will help others?

    ^ lol I said the exact thing in another thread.

    I'm young, so perhaps it really isn't my place, but...

    I've had nights where I didn't think I was going to make it. I've had nights where I didn't even want to make it. I was done, I had figured it out, life was pointless, slipping away to "eternal nothingness" seemed the better option. I was willing to go. However, I've never had a morning where I wasn't glad that I woke up.

    Thankfully, I'm past all that (I hope)..and now I'm at the stage where "What now?" is constantly on my mind. "Where do I go from here?". The honest answer is "I don't know" but while before that would have led me into some really undesirable situations (subjectively speaking, of course) these days I find I am better able to use that energy to actually go somewhere.

    So, while I don't have an answer to "What now?", I do have an answer for "What not now?".

    Perhaps finding your answers to "What not now?" will help you? Just a suggestion...

    Is this what you've been working for all of these years?!?
    I think a good piece of advice would be to work towards being able to say "yes" to such questions on your death bed.
