Because when something's gone, it may never come back. Nurture and cherish what you have.Read More
If I never broke the rules of my mother's influence, I would never have moved to Tahiti, one of the best experiences of my life. If I followed the rules of dating, I would have never felt this love. If I never broke the rules of nutrition, I would never enjoy fresh, sourdough bread. If I followed the rules of sleep, I would never get to drink 3 glasses of wine, see the stars and talk about the way I see the world.Read More
There are certain things that can help un-program our brains from all of the hurt and fear that has happened. If you give it a chance. They will let your mind release and take a step back for a moment. And look at this life from a different branch of the tree. To assess your choices from a new set of eyes. To view the city from the middle of the river instead of on the land.Read More
Looking back on those choices and reflecting on them inspires me. I am ready to make more of them. It doesn't mean that I will quit my job cold turkey (which i've done before). Or sell all of my things (which I have also done before). But I will learn to make more choices that don't have to be so black and white. Just some adventure with a little bit of logic. I wrote the poem below while quite hungover and with little sleep. Another decision that I had to jump out of my daily norm to do. And it is one of my favorites that I have ever written :)Read More
I recently started watching the show Girls after it was recommended to me. These “semi-reality shows” that depict female lives was something I swore off for the past six months after being somewhat of a Sex and the City addict. I used to repeat the episodes over and over again.Read More
Let me repeat that: if you get 6 hours of sleep per night for two weeks straight, your mental and physical performance declines to the same level as if you had stayed awake for 48 hours straight.Read More
The times when I feel closest to conquering my insecurities is when I don't give a flying f*** about what anyone else thinks. And my actions come from a place of sincere love and egoless intention.
I invite you to this mentality today in something that you do. Own what you're doing and why you're doing it. But make sure it is coming from a good place of love. And if the person you are with doesn't understand, I would second guess them.
As this new year starts. And you make your resolutions. To lose 10 lbs. To stop drinking wine every night. To sign up for a half marathon. Move to Colorado. Stop stressing out. Stop living your life in fear. Think about the promise you are making to yourself. Or maybe to others, if they are involved.
Don't break it. You will have to live with it. Even if it doesn't seem that serious. It's contagious.
Don't cheat on yourself. On someone. Or on whatever you do. You're not a hero, even if you win. Or if no one finds out. You know. Be a man.Read More
