I watch one show consistently. And usually when I refer to it, I call it my "guilty pleasure". But I don't really feel guilty about it. I actually think I have learned a lot from it. The Affair. Guess what it's about?
When I was little, I used to think of cheating as something equivalent to manslaughter. Devastating. Beyond sinful. But unfortunately as I got older, it lost its' meaning. It became too common. On exams in school. Sports teams. In trial. In relationships on another human being. Or on yourself.
Saying one thing. Telling yourself you are going to stick to something. Then breaking that promise. Is it so common that we don't take it seriously any more?
What a shame. Having promises and pacts lose their meaning. They become valueless. So when we are faced with temptation, we have the option to cave in and deal with the consequences. If there are any.
Is it cheating only if you get caught?
It has become normalized. Where it almost doesn't seem like cheating anymore. If no one sees or no one knows, then you got away with it. You're safe. But in reality, the most important person knows.
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.
Here's an inspiring review on a book I found by a company that doesn't cheat. Check it out. #beinspired

"It's like, it's like your rib cage is a jail cell, holding all that love in. So, I want you to take your fist, take your fist, and grab your heart and hold it in the air, hold that love in the air and open your fingers, one at a time if you need to, and let that love out. " #loveart

I don't think I have ever felt as at home as as I do here. I think back on all of the cities, the apartments and places I have lived. I used come back from California wishing that I lived there. This time I came back craving these mountains and this awesome,alive community. Home is where your heart is. Mine really is here. #colorado #grassaintgreener #wineaintsweeter #welcomehomehunny

The Hollywood shows were amazing. Unfortunately there was a threat in the middle of the first show that had my heart in my throat. The interesting thing as I reflect was that my fear was actually for @bobweir And @deadandcompany . And my fellow neighbors. I truly felt it for my life last. These lessons are learned through the message of this music. Despite it all, the energy from this crowd was peaceful and alive. I am so thankful for finding this music and for my two friends who helped me get there. #pleasespreadpeace #wavethatflagwaveitwideandhigh #grateful ✌️
I finally made it home #homeiswherethedeadis #grateful
