Excerpt from The Great Gatsby, by F Scott Fitzgerald

The loneliest moment in someone’s life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, and all they can do is stare blankly.

My thoughts?

When such moments happen, challenge your paralysis, take inertia by the throat and choke it. Never ever be an idle spectator at the unfolding spectacle of your demise. Leave that role to other stakeholders who have less at stake. Rather, choose that moment to live. Invoke your agency and combine your agency, self awareness and choice and use these as the energy to create, direct and act out a script you and the world will remember. Then, you will truly have lived and when you have left would still live on. Noel
