Ladder to Nowhere

Ascending vs Descending

Today’s philosophical question is: should one be ascending or descending at this stage in life? When I look around, I see plenty of peers still trying to climb up their career ladder, still yearning for more money, fancier vehicles, and adding additional knots of prestige to their pistol belt. Possibly because they don’t know what else to do with their self-competitiveness. I feel increasingly relaxed about all of that stuff and content with whatever happens – yet not entirely rudderless. My gut feeling is that the view is pretty good somewhere in the middle of that old rusty ladder.
