A place where people come to be reminded...

"mistake" is just another word for "experience."

Change

I’ve been watching the world for the past two years and have become very aware of how quickly things are changing for all of us. Every person I know has been (or is being) “hit” with a lot of change very fast. Breakups, new relationships, moving, losing jobs, divorces, new jobs, marriages, family members passing…more […]

I Am

I am not the books I read, the movies I watch or the news on TV. I am not the bed I lay in, the clothes I wear or the car I drive. I am not the money I make nor the job I do. I am not the friends I have. Neither my lovers […]

Perfect

You don’t have to be perfect. You don’t even have to be close. You don’t have to be your mom and you don’t have to be your dad. Your sister is nice, but do you really want to be her? Your brother may be successful, but what does that have to do with you? You […]

East Wind

Sometimes you meet friends you see every day. Sometimes you meet friends you see every month or every few years. Life happens. Busy happens. Things get chaotic and unexpected.

Unlimit

There seems to be no graceful way for me to ease into the words my hand wants to form. So, why try? You limit yourself. We all do or have. We’ve been taught that things just are the way they are. I was taught at a young age that “real” men don’t cry, don’t talk […]

Change You

I cannot change you. No matter what I do or how hard I try. No matter how much I love you and want you to experience things beyond your best dreams I don’t get to make that decision for you. Ever. I have to remember more than anything else: all I can do is choose […]

Break

Creativity has a process: ebb and flow. Oftentimes, when we don’t feel creative in our lives it is because we don’t appear to be producing anything. We seem to have lost motivation, be it in our jobs, with our family, in our workouts, in our spiritual practices…in anything we do that brings us happiness (which […]

Blank Thyself

Here’s what I know: we all have our shit. Every single one of us. No exceptions. Period. What I also know is that we have free will. We get to choose Love or misery (which is anything that is not Love). I’m not talking about love like you see in the movies. Pride and Prejudice […]

Seasons

Sometimes a person comes into our lives for reasons unbeknownst. There is something about this new person that you enjoy; some sort of attraction. And just as soon as this person comes into your life he leaves. You attracted him, he came and had the effect on you that you needed. Once this person’s job […]

Passions and Shit

I had a great lesson this week on why it is so important to do the things you love (in my case this includes writing, photography, this blog, etc.). Before I tell you what happened, I first need to briefly catch you up on my life. For the last few months I’ve been hit with […]
