The joy of curious anticipation

What would happen if we kept our dreams, worked our dreams, sought after our dreams, and no one was around to tell us we didn’t have a shot, that there was no way. 

Never let the sun go down without accomplishing what’s most important

It’s so important to know what needs to be done, to know what HAS to be done and can’t be pushed. A lot of the time, these things are not the most pressing, not the most urgent, not the most obvious.

Don’t let the common culture cloud your vision

So few people actually know who they really are, even if they didn’t want to copy the rest of the world and do their own thing, they don’t know what their own thing is. 

Find your purpose hidden deep inside and embrace it

It’s hard to find. It’s clouded by perception. It’s looked over by comparison. It’s missed by distraction. It’s passed over by misunderstanding.  We don’t look inside to understand our purpose.  We look outside; we look at our neighbors, our devices, our televisions.  We measure ourselves to standards of fake posts from perfect lives. We evaluate […]

Peace comes through the endurance of experience alone

Life has a way of getting to you. A way of stretching you thin, so thin your sure at any moment your entire existence will tear in two.  Peace is hard to find, hard to experience. Peace with the world around you, with your closest relationships, and especially with yourself. It’s all too easy to […]

When others are sleeping, GET IT DONE.

Early mornings are powerful. In the US only 1 in 5 is awake at 5:30am. Only 8 out of 100 are up at 5:00am. 8 freaking people that’s it. In a sense that’s your competition. If you typically get up at 7:00 and but instead you shift your day to 5:00 you will effectively be […]

Priorities.

Life hits us with priority distracting craziness on an hourly, no minutely basis. Each little distraction is wrapped with a nice little bow and a tag that says “Hey, I’m really important, and awfully urgent, please pay attention to me, RIGHT NOW dangit” 1 out of 100 of those distractions are actually worthy of our […]

Find them, treasure them.

I have been around the block ya know, this ain’t my first rodeo honey. What I have seen, what I have endured, what I have risen above has been hard. But it’s been good too. Not everything that is hard is good, but from my experience just about everything that’s good is hard, at least […]
