Love 2.0: Add to Cart

Image(s)

Looking for love, or just a casual affair? Match.com claims that 1 in 5 relationships begin online. True or not, the current proliferation of dating websites and apps is undeniable. Amorous directories such as 100BestDatingSites.com vouch for the industry’s growth and demographic granularity. From the squeaky clean eHarmony.com to the purely carnal AdultFriendFinder.com to the off-center Meet-An-Inmate.com, online matchmaking services have generated an unprecedented phenomenon in human history: a mega-marketplace for personal relationships.

eHarmony ad: cutouts of famous faces.

What was once a private matter carried out organically, over traditional networks, or relegated to obscure classified ads, has become a conspicuous public pastime. In a world where community at large has disintegrated, dating websites and apps address a social need and serve a practical purpose. In the process, however, they also reveal a rather pathetic side of human behavior. The neurotic catalog of our existence has never been more self-evident. Digital storefronts open into a…

Work Like a Slave, Live Like a King

My father used to have this laidback approach to life. Being the owner of a pretty successful restaurant, he’d go drive to work in the morning, drink his coffee, eat his breakfast, then he’d watch TV in his office for a few hours, then head back home in the afternoon, take a nap, then head back to the restaurant at around 7 PM, eat dinner, watch TV for a few more hours in his office, then drive back home, drink some wine, and then sit on the couch watching TV for a few more hours.

Those were the habits I observed during the years.

My father also didn’t like to have much. No plans for the future, no great ambitions. He wasn’t passionate enough about his business to learn and evolve. He also notoriously didn’t like to invest in his restaurant, which meant that the damn thing was close to falling apart when he went bankrupt.

Looking back, everyone could see what had happened, and why. But he didn’t. He never did. He put the blame on all sorts of external factors (real or even imaginary), and he thought it all to be unfair. Those who made it big were all thieves, liars, or lucky. And he wasn’t any of those things.

Funny. Continue reading

Why You Should Wake Up in The Morning

Because who wakes up in the morning, gets a lot more done before everyone else wakes up.

Because the quality of your morning determines how the rest of your day unfolds.

Because early in the morning (even before the sun rises) it’s a lot more quiet and it’s a lot easier to get stuff done. Continue reading

When I Sit in Silence

lovelorn

When I sit in silence
with nothing but my thoughts for company,
my consciousness for comfort,
I feel,
palpably,
that something is missing.
For years, I didn’t know what that was.
An absence of goals and dreams?
A lack of purpose?
No connection to a single home,
a stable identity?
The theories behind my inadequacy came and went –
childhood trauma,
young adult depression,
laziness without ambition,
not enough gratitude.
Now I know better.
The thing that’s missing,
the lack of which makes me feel
this unbearable loneliness and deep-seated longing,
is You.
You who created me
and loves me like no other.
You, who are with me,
even when you’re not,
who gifts me moments of work and rest,
glimpses of transcendence and treachery.
Despite all that you have blessed me with –
family, friends, multiple homes, diverse experiences, a world of beauty and amazement –
nothing compares to…
