I came across this philosophy of Nietzsche’s that I found absolutely beautiful and heartening, that of amor fati or the “love of fate. If anything it gave me a glimpse of the possibility that life might actually be enjoyed.
In Nietzsche’s words:
My formula for greatness in a human being is amor fati: that one wants nothing to be different, not forward, not backward, not in all eternity. Not merely bear what is necessary […] but love it.
