And then there was … nothing

Earworm:  Write whatever you normally write about, and weave in a book quote, film quote, or song lyric that’s been sticking with you this week.

This prompt completely stumped me.  I had nothing come to mind.  It has been the kind of week where all that stuck out was the banality of it.  I did read some good books, watched some great tv and saw some movies I had saved but they all blended in together and nothing stuck with or to me.

So, undeterred I looked up quotes for “nothing” and found this gem:

 “Nothing, Everything, Anything, Something: If you have nothing, then you have everything, because you have the freedom to do anything, without the fear of losing something.”
Jarod Kintz


I just think it is perfect for a number of reasons.  The first being that I love how he uses those four words so succinctly and opens up an infinity of opportunities.  I enjoy the simplicity of the value investing in having nothing which leads to the freedom to do anything.

This is a perfect idea for where I am in my life at the moment.  It feels like I am at the bottom of my barrel for my mental and physical health.  But that this frees me up to fill that barrel up again with whatever I want.  It is a more optimistic view than I normally hold about the journey ahead of me.
