The Wrong Opposite

During my morning chat with My Morning Coffee Story we were talking about tiny victories. As the thought seated itself in my mind I…

That’s Life’s Circumstance

I’ve been thinking about how we use certain phrases to describe certain things. More often than not, we use “That’s Life” as a way…

Manifestation & The Perfectionistic, Over-Thinking, Control Freak

A month or so ago I said that my old friend gave me attitude and said “Don’t try. Do.” I took exception. So much…

The Vessel of Mind

My thoughts this morning began with how we’re the only ones truly listening when we speak. Yet we don’t choose our words carefully when…

Vegas Rhythm

After a slew of “coincidences” that were just too bizarre to ignore, I set out to figure out exactly what the f was going…

The Deliciousness of Wobbly Legs

There’s nothing wrong with daring to imagine the possibilities. But it is easy to get lost amongst the shimmer of infatuation. So dare to…

Failing Less – Also Known As Success

An off handed and impromptu poem I said to My Morning Coffee Story this morning got me thinking about success and failure.—When we are…

What May Not Be

I got to thinking about the saying “it is what it is.” That’s the cliché of the day. There’s a surrender in that phrase…

What Are the Odds?

My morning meditation yielded something wonderful, yet wholly unexpected. I realized that creating the life you want is in fact about focus. But it’s…

Life’s Directive – The Cliché Relationship

It looks like I’m back to life’s roadmap this morning. And it would seem that I’m piecing this blog back to its original intent,…

Valid Tenacity of a Dream

Today is inspired by memories of Statistics class.

*EXPLETIVE* It

Warmth of Pain

Last night I was watching a Nat Geo show on humpback whales and I was completely overwhelmed by the wisdom of their generations. They…

Frivolous Distemper

And so today’s story goes…—Whether you have focus or not, you’re getting somewhere. And Somewhere could also be Nowhere.—And you’re going to have experiences…

Incongruent Thoughts

I’m coming to embrace what The Enlightened Spectacle truly is. At first I thought it was simply a very bumpy road to knowing myself….

Challenge Declined

We see it all the time. People challenging themselves to do this or that. “Take the 5 Day Weight Loss Challenge,” “Take the Writer’s…

Practice Makes Mediocre First

I’m beginning to see how my world went from opinion to personal journey. I was having personal realizations as I gave my opinions on…

Practice Makes Mediocre ~ New Blog Coming Soon

I’m cruising down the path of enlightenment and I think it’s all starting to come together. I think. So here’s a quote which resonated…

Practice You

I’ve been thinking about how this blog went from honest relationship advice to this psychospiritual journey I’m on. Truth is, it’s cliche to say…

Askew

Another day of thinking about our ideas of control. I’ve been inclined to say that control is an illusion, but have realized that by…

Silent Barking

Today’s thought has been brewing for awhile. But this morning, after my meditation, the first post I saw was one telling you what you…

Step 1

I’ve been thinking a lot about this whole “Psychospiritual” journey I’m on. Realizing my codependency and setting out to fix it. That’s what pointed…

Right Side Up Becomes Upside Down

The inspiration for today’s thought was a dream I had after my 3am wake up. I struggled to find stillness, but when I finally…

The Truth Lies in the Twists and Turns

Everyone who gives advice is telling you the truth. Their truth. And they get so excited about the potential of their advice they forget…

Now, Where Did I Put My Darkness?

New blog is live and this is the addendum. I love how each day a little more of the path is revealed. All in…

Opinions…You Know the Saying

Advice. Everyone has it. And everyone has received it. But in the end, advice, while perhaps from a place of good intention and experience,…

Facing Your Fears

There is nothing to fear in the darkness of your mind. It’s the anticipation which is wrought with negative possibilities. Once you surrender to…

Let’s Be Honest

And the key to being honest with yourself is being objective. Not allowing the truth to overwhelm you. It takes practice, but remember, you…

Email Inspiration

An email with the subject that read something like, “Ways to Make People Like You” inspired me this morning to say, “*expletive* directly off.”…

You’ll Approve

The only real secret to life is realizing that it requires practice to get what you want out of it. So keep trying. Don’t…

Gaining Perspective

As I further explore the idea that life has a hidden roadmap, I’m on a quest looking for how to uncover the clues we…

Life Out of Context

My most recent blog is still blowing my mind. As I continue my quest for mastery, I hope that I’m communicating the feeling my…

Your Well Kept Secret

I’m never really sure if I’m communicating the essence of my thoughts so they resonate similarly for the reader. But it’s like I said…

Life Has a Hidden Roadmap

I’m sitting here, somewhere between inspired and totally mind blown. I’m not kidding. I think I just uncovered life’s hidden roadmap. So while I…

Success Is Gifting Catharsis

Masterpieces are birthed by their master’s passion resonating into the world. We feel the profundity of their passion echoing through their life’s work. The…

Exposure, Experience, and a Trespass

To surround yourself with something doesn’t mean you have experienced it. But it’s a start. Keep going. Surrender.— Keep your opinions (and your hands)…

The Takeaway

Just Life’s way of letting you know what areas you need to work on. Oh sure. Eventually Time will temper your ways. But why…

Permission

Got to thinking about words which resonate with us. That resonance is approval of sorts, permission, and proof that you’re not alone. Proof that…

Thinking at a Decent Hour

This is one of my rare “it’s not morning, and it’s not 3am either” thoughts.—I got to thinking about life and the perpetual quest…

You Choose

The meaning of life is embedded in free will. You can either claim free will for yourself, and embrace the possibilities and responsibilities which…

Says You

These words have been in my mind since 3am, so they clearly want you to know what you’re thinking.

Yesterday’s Surrender

Had a few random thoughts this morning. This one was a continuation of yesterday. Funny how we don’t see the subtle changes in ourselves…

Just Before the Crest

Something about the ocean came to me today as I cleared my mind. I remember a dive trip I took years ago. I never…

Things We Tell Ourselves

Responsibility to Self Surrender

So here I sit, practicing my psychospirituality (whatever that means), wading through all of these existential thoughts, attempting to find some peace which will…

Thoughts in a Shattered Glass

Apologies and The Kingdom of Me

Exposé – Toxic Relationships and Sex Drive

In this exposé, I’d like to talk about my rampant attraction to toxic relationships and the effect they have had on my sex drive….
