day 36 cont'd: I think that something I haven't prepared myself to come to terms with is accepting motivation as a game of snakes and ladders

Getting a job is like hitting a ladder, but now that it's my new normal, I'm seriously at risk of stagnating into a new low and I need to start moving forward again

Likewise, I might hit a snake in the future but I can't accept that as the finite end

Nothing is ever as good or as bad as I think it is
