There comes a point in your life when the thing you enjoy no longer becomes enjoyable. When the thing you enjoy and had a profound affect on your life and your way of thinking becomes a thing of such indifference that you're willing to step away for a good long while and never look back. It might not be the most pleasant feeling in the world, but in the end, you'll get over it, move on with your life, and find something else to enjoy... or barring that, go back to the old things you used to enjoy and work from there.

There's this thing that I used to enjoy. I enjoyed it very much. It became a thing that I enjoyed for years and looked forward to this thing whenever it took place. And then the thing started to become less of the thing I enjoyed and more something else. Eventually, it became a thing that was the complete opposite of the thing that I enjoyed and suddenly, I didn't want anything to do with that thing anymore.

So I took a step away from that thing and moved on to something else.

Funny thing is even though I'm not doing that other thing that I left behind, there's no real void. If anything, it feels like a great weight has been lifted from me. Suddenly, I'm feeling much better about life and the world in general. And I found some other things to enjoy... but I wonder how long these things that I enjoy turn out to be less so... and how long before they become something that I can't enjoy?

This is a general thought process that occurs whenever I stop enjoying something that I've enjoyed for years. A circle, if you will. I'm not denoting anything specific nor am I saying anything in particular. I'm just expressing a thought here.

Something to think about...
