The following is a brief example on being human– at least in the most random sense of a moment.
We all experience a whole assortment of thoughts, or collections as we go about our days. Afterall, we are what we think.
To set the scene:
I was about two hours into some computer work at Starbucks. With a good caffeine boost– my own delirium got the best of me.
Behold, Another human! :
Frantic, unorganized, and delirious in thought. Continue reading “A Brief Moment In Delirium– High on Coffee and Sweet, Sweet Jazz!”
Hello old friend,
it has been so long, I don’t know where to begin.
I remember when we met– young and naive — together we trodden around, hoping to never grow old.
Our problems were minimal, only the day at hand, and what was to become of it was our only real concern.

For the sake of this post, and how I am feeling in this particular moment, I will say it and spell it out again…
Don’t get me wrong– I am all for mindfulness
I practice mindfulness, awareness, and meditation daily. I also try to incorporate it into every little facet of my being in order to capture more of the moment.

Well, I happened to stumble onto this ‘Transient’ challenge laid out by Andrea Badgley.
Immediately, I began to form visuals and associate images of the past– a past that is now very late.
Perhaps a pirates’ past, sailing the open seas in search of new opportunities to plunder.
Perhaps a life spent upon the helm— does the helmsman steer the ship, or does the ship steer the helmsman? Continue reading “Transient Memories That Don’t Belong To Me.”
“I don’t WANT to huff and puff, But, I NEED to huff and puff!”

We hear it often:
“Build on yourself”
“Build on your optimism”
“Build on your greetings and smiles”
“Build on your openness”
YOU ARE WHAT YOU THINK! Continue reading “Huffing and Puffing Towards a Solution-The Power Of Negative Thinking”
Don’t Just Work Hard, Work Smart Too!
And while you’re doing that, Test nature, Test the faith, Test yourself! –– THAT’S LIVING!
There is Work, and then there is WORK
Someone looking at someone from the outside in can be so quick to place judgment. It is socially common everywhere — at least here in the western world– where we are instantly defined by what we do for a living. And usually, this is implied through what we do for work.

Do you know what drives me mad?
It’s how so many people— myself included — can be so aware of the way things are, but when it boils down to it, we blanket sweep these issues under the rug– falling into the same bullshit repeatedly.
These issues can really be anything.
Let’s take a look at small talk. Continue reading “The Bullshit-itty of Small Talk in the Grand Scheme of Things When Saying Less Better”
