Lunchtime chats

Since I have zero friends at work I’m spending my lunch hour reading. Which, to be honest, isn’t that bad. It’s something I always complain I don’t have enough time to do, so it looks like having no friends has been a blessing in disguise!

Here’s a nice quote to ponder on your lunch.

“And when the event, the big change in your life, is simply an insight—isn’t that a strange thing? That absolutely nothing changes except that you see things differently and you’re less fearful and less anxious and generally stronger as a result: isn’t it amazing that a completely invisible thing in your head can feel realer than anything you’ve experienced before? You see things more clearly and youknow that you’re seeing them more clearly. And it comes to you that this is what it means to love life, this is all anybody who talks seriously about God is ever talking about. Moments like this.”
— Jonathan Franzen, The Corrections
