…like i said, get yourself an erratic best friend

I did say it in a previous post didn’t I? Life is never dull or too difficult when you share it with like minded people who are always working hard to accomplish their goals, successful in many ways, spiritually included and can still have a good laugh at themselves. As you know I hold my…

…family tree

We cut life down so easily, I wonder how it grows. Carelessly we send others to the afterlife, as though privy to all secrets it holds. A tree may grow to infinity, but how will we ever know When chainsaw, axe, guns and knives lays its stature low. Its branches once spread wide, lay scattered…

…mental breakdown loading

Sometimes life is weird. She slept, I didn’t. I am both at the best and worst moment of my life. A moment of change and transformation which is bringing me face to face with the things I am letting go, it is a double edged sword. We usually try not to have mental health issues…

…the other side of my comfort zone

In my previous post I advised myself to start living the best moments of my life today and stop waiting for it to arrive. In the effort to change and in the process to bring about change I have begun taking more risks. Working on ones foundation is no easy task, you begin by questioning…

…the foundation

“Just because you are doing doesn’t mean you are accomplishing” these are the words of John Addison a former CEO of a financial services company in his monthly column in Success Magazine entitled Real Talk.

…categories, turmoil and wings

…hits blunt

Each time I look up the sky is different. Fulfilling its duty and full of life, of beauty, of history. I always wonder… if we ever gained the ability to hear its voice what stories would it tell. Would it even tell stories or simply weep for witnessing first hand the destructive path we’ve left…

…life update

I have decided to move back to my childhood home. It was a decision I had been contemplating for a few months, but I finally decided on Tuesday. I think the events of last weekend …hesitation and a moment played a part in my decision. Moving back home was never really in the cards for…

…hesitation and a moment

Helen Keller, author, activist and lecturer said “Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.” Only through experience of trial and suffering…I take this phrase as the gospel. This past weekend I encountered a true test of my…

…the door to no where

Ten years ago I opened a door to ‘no where’ and tried to go through and my crazy self has tried to go through that door many times ever since. I don’t know who it was that said “the definition of madness is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results each time”…
