I was lost somewhere inside my mind today at work, doing my part of our current little project as the new kid (17) did his a few feet away. I have no idea how, but I suddenly got a tingle in my sixth sense that he was about to do his part backwards — another … Continue reading Hate Redoing Things?
Hey hey! How's it going? If this is your first time, or your first time in a while, welcome! I won't keep you long today; I just mainly want to say: WOW. What a year huh? 2020 started out for me with things be-bopping along as usual. I never thought a few months later I … Continue reading Freaking 2020
I used to spend as much time outdoors as I could doing virtually anything, so long as I had a partner in crime. I don’t know for sure what happened... I think it was “adulting” that ruined it. I remember having to create a new email address once I “moved back inside” because I didn’t … Continue reading Been Outside Lately?
I find it incredibly difficult to write when I can’t think of something to passionately pen words about. What do you do when things aren’t flowing?
--What the fu&% are you looking at? I will beat your ass.--Cody-esque I think, perhaps -- hopefully, I can finally move on. I'm not sure what the pastor said, something related to love (not bullies) . . . and yet my brain, in its spider-web way took me back to middle school. I first put … Continue reading On Bullies and Justice
Today’s topic is a life trick I’ve discovered and considered a lot recently; I’m thoroughly convinced it will work well for nearly everyone. It makes me better at life, and life is better. If your wants and desires by nature always guide you to outcomes you enjoy, then this post isn't for you. Congratulations! Have … Continue reading More Joy and Less Regret
I’d like to share a trick with anyone else who finds falling asleep difficult. It’s really just a pick and choose from meditation. I seldom go by “recipes” but rather borrow and modify. I’ve dealt with anxiety for as long as I can remember but used to fall asleep easily. I’ve had to make adjustments … Continue reading Anxious Sleepers
Today we are talking about an integral part of my own journey that may be missing from yours or from that of one you love. The war (carefully chosen instead over battle) of becoming Porn-free is a long one— full of ups, downs, and in-betweens. It's filled with the putting down of feet, renewed vigor, … Continue reading The Day Porn Recovery Really Started
This is part of a series on the reasons I train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and think it’s a great choice for many others. I think a fitting first post is starting with why I started martial arts. About that... the primary reasons I started aren’t the main reasons I continue now. Middle school left... an … Continue reading Why Martial Arts?
2019 entailed one of the darkest, saddest times of my life. 2019 also gave me some of my favorite memories out of 33 years. As I look back I see lots of highs and lows, accomplishments, gifts, lessons, growth, losses, along with literal bumps and bruises. Looking ahead I would say 2020 is likely to … Continue reading Goodbye 2019, Hello Now
