There’s this really funny line in my favorite show at the moment, The Good Place, where Maya Rudolph is an all-knowing judge and she visits Earth for a short period of time and deems it unsalvageable.
Her words, not mine, are that she’d like to explode it and start over. (Sorry, spoilers.) Start over from amoebas and see where that takes us.
And today, it feels like a possibility. There’s just so much heartache and pain and if aliens came down right now to terminate the whole Earth, I wouldn’t even blink. I would just say, to everyone around me, “I told you so.” And then I would lie down and wait for the aliens to cull me.
So, in lieu of aliens, and violence of ANY kind, I’d like to encourage you to explode your life. Even just a little bit. Just decimate a part of your life and start over. May it be your self-doubt or toxic relationships, but it could be anything.
Just say to yourself, I’m done with this and imagine it is blown to smithereens. So, you can move on from someone or from a job or from an idea in your head. Just let it explode and sweep up the pieces. But don’t forget to start over. That’s the best part.
I wish you all the best in exploding your life. May you build bridges as fast you burn them.
