Happy Valentine’s Day 2018

Happy Valentine’s Day 2018

Have I ever told you that I like all of the holidays? So of course I love Valentine’s Day too! Not because of the materialistic elements that have been incorporated into most of the holidays. No, I love that there are specific days where we are encouraged to have fun, celebrate, and spend invaluable time with people we like. With that in mind, I want to tell you all… well it’s in the title. Although today, being Valentine’s Day, also marks the how-ever-many-thousandth anniversary of a certain somebody’s massacre (which I read that some bitter jerk face decided to try Read more »

Lesson 6: What Do You Live For?

Lesson 6: What Do You Live For?

“There’s a difference between what we work for and what we live for.” I’m not sure which of the several shows I’ve been watching I heard this on, but it stuck to my consciousness like a catchy song on a broken Sunday. I’d like to act like this is really just another RSI 101 lesson, but I’m not one for disingenuous pretexts. The question stands: What do YOU live for? I’ve listened to yogis and gurus of one kind or another… from the so called self help motivational speakers of my youth, to the teachers of spirituality and enlightenment of Read more »

Lesson 2: Happiness is Not a Destination

Lesson 2: Happiness is Not a Destination

Lesson 2: Happiness is not a Destination. You know how when people notice that you’re in an unpleasant mood, and say things about having gotten up on the wrong side of the bed? Or how some people seem to have nothing but wrong sides of their bed? That’s because we’ve been misinformed, perhaps miseducated about what happiness is. Of all the plans I’ve made for my life, happiness was always my goal; like if I had these things, earned whichever title, was about to accomplish this or that goal, I’d be happy. I don’t know many people who don’t have Read more »

Be A Better You Without Beyonce

Be A Better You Without Beyonce

So I’m back, but be patient with me because life is taking a sudden turn! Some things are the same some things are very DIFFERENT! But that’s not what I wanna discuss today. Not about me today! Achievements. Competition. A Better You! Sounds like some motivational crap that I might just burst into outrage or advice about…and that may happy. If you haven’t figured it out yet, I write and post just as the thoughts are reaching me and my fingers! Well, I picked up this new thing where I say, “right?” after every statement I make. It’s so annoying Read more »

Fortuitous…

Fortuitous…

I’ve had many many thoughts since my last post but I’ll speak briefly on what I said I’d talk about last time…relationships. Particularly long distance relationships. THEY CAN WORK with patience, commitment, and diligence. Two people have to be understanding enough of each other to make it happen. My reason for saying this is because every man I’ve met has been outside of my little circle. Never have I been really interested in a man that I cross paths with in my daily routine. Just be aware that your soul mate may live in Italy while you’re here in the Read more »

Vulnerability

Vulnerability

What is it about opening ourselves up for all to see that causes fear? What are we to be afraid of, rejection? Of being mocked? Perhaps it is the fear of being alienated, of not fitting in, and so not a properly functioning member of society? We lie, we cheat, we hinder and mock. We are nasty, we are cruel, we are uncaring, blind, mute, and ignorant. We preach freedom, but live in chains. Shout liberty, but are oppressed. Do we not scream for more? Don’t we spend our lives chasing a feeling? Chasing love, accomplishment, acceptance, fulfillment, pleasure, leisure? Read more »
