I discovered this word a few weeks ago now and it really stuck with me, I just get it, a word to describe a feeling I’ve always had. I like words.
I always struggle with the contradicting idea that we all have all the rest of the time in our lives and then this feeling of torschlusspanik. There’s a growing list of creative things and life things I want to do, yet I always put off because it’s not the right time or because I “have time”. That’s where the sinking fear sets in. The future has always scared me a bit. So in my 27th year around the sun, the aim is to do more creativeness, do more lifeness. Because life really is finite and no one knows what the future holds.
