How to Drive Yourself Crazy

I’m convinced that I’ve discovered the key to instant insanity. Yes, it’s upsetting that I didn’t come across hidden gold instead, but information is useful, so I’ll take it.

If you’ve had too much peace lately and want some crazy in your life, the fastest way to get yourself there is…you ready for this?

The Tides of Change

Everything that surrounds us is undergoing constant change. Some of those changes are easily apparent – our favorite restaurant unexpectedly shuts down, people get older – but internal changes can be a bit more tricky.

Sometimes when we go through internal changes, even if they’ve been years in the making, it may seem that those changes happened over night and it can leave us with an intriguing confusion.

Oh The Anxiety…

I remember my first time with the same vibrancy of feeling that I had when I first experienced it.

The Panic is Real, but so What?!

You know those weeks when life randomly draws your name and decides to play a game of how much shit you can handle until you let out a scream that gives Fred Flinstone’s ‘wilmaaaa’ a run for its money?

So, I had one of those last week and it got to the point where it just became comical towards the end.

Because, if you can’t laugh during the hard times, then I’m not really sure that you’ll make it to the other side of the tunnel. Continue reading The Panic is Real, but so What?!

For the Guy Standing Next to Me on Bart

It was a typical morning. I ran down the stairs, as I do most mornings, to catch my train to the city and get to work.

I managed to make it just in time to step into a crammed train and lifted my phone out of my back pocket.

I quickly became engrossed in my e-book until I heard the older woman in front of me ask, “would you like to sit down?”

Her words were directed at a 20 something, dark-haired, tall guy standing next to me. His service dog was standing quietly at his feet.

He was just about to respond when a middle-aged man with a cane, sitting next to the woman who had generously offered her seat, turned to her and half-whispered (not quietly enough for those closest to him not to be able to hear): “he’s a full-abled man; you do not need to offer him your seat. He’s clearly not disabled.”

Hello New Year, 2015

Happy new year to every single one of you!

2014 was a year of exploration, internal work, and some much needed growing pains. It was a year full of valuable lessons that brought me more self-awareness than I’d expected.

With that cycle coming to a close, I am ready for 2015’s clarity and manifestations.

For 2015, intentions are set, I am present, enthused to continue working my butt off, and finally ready to receive.

May this year bring forth what you need, what you seek, and what you’ve been working towards. Let us remember that time is a gift and to accept that gift we must fully live and not just merely exist.

Here’s to all the new people we’ll meet, the meaningful relationships that we will continue to nourish, the experiences we’ll have, the places we will see, and the love we will give and receive – cheers!

Thank you for the memories, 2014.
