The stoic motto—
There is no greater joy than being alive. All the “downsides” of existence are petty concerns.
Hat tip to Taleb
Nassim Taleb’s notion of “upside”. Life is unlimited optionality and upside, no downside.
No downsides in life
What are fake downsides in life?
Best way to address these issues:
“It’s all good”.
Things which attack you strengthen you. Anything which strengthens you is good.
Art is the ultimate upside
As long as you got art in life, you got every reason to live. To keep making, creating, exploring, challenging, and daring!
