It usually happens when I declare I am going to learn something new.  Like right now, I am learning how to film and edit with Adobe Premiere Pro. Hours can go by and I don’t even know what happened. I am so involved in the process. Struggling through learning something new on After Effects, I look up and it’s 11 pm. My Fitbit app telling me it’s time to get some rest.  I like this […]

This morning I imagined what the 80 year old version of myself would tell me, if I asked her, “What do I do now?” “What should I focus on?” What wisdom would she have, nearing the end of her life? What would she have focused on today? She’d tell me to bike more, write more, film everything. Tell everyone I love how much I love them. Hug more, kiss more. Squeeze them tight. Use my creativity […]

Repeating this mantra softly to myself has helped me sail through the hours of overwhelming tasks in a day. It has stopped me from rushing and I hate rushing. Rushing just sucks. It makes life feel hasty.  I want to savor life. Even the boring parts. This idiom also applies to anything you do. It has helped me improve my days. When properly learning something new Any new skill that you are trying to learn should […]

I’m not sure when I adapted such a stressed out, hard-charging approach to life, but I did and it sucked and I am over it. I don’t regret much, but I do feel as if my fretful, grinding approach to work and life has exhausted me with very little more to show for it. All that grind, all that toil, leading to very little added reward. What a waste of energy. Sure I feel successful, but I have […]

I’m grateful for another chance. The opportunity to start from scratch. An opportunity to improve my attitude and behavior. This day is fresh, clean, unworn with emotional stains.  Nothing carried over from yesterday, just this rare and beautiful day, made up of many moments ahead, today is a day in my life, not my entire life. How will I use it?  What I choose to think about today will make me and much around me, […]

Last night I closed my eyes before falling to sleep and made a decision. I want every day to feel more exciting and adventurous.   Or in other words. . . . A common song sung to a great melody is another way to find beauty. – The Art of Writing, Lu Chi’s Wen Fu. So, today showed up again. In all it’s predictable glory. The same usual sunrise, just slightly different. Another clean and clear slate of […]

True transformation, real personal change, can come from a spark of inspiration or devastating disruption. When you have been so turned on that your Hell Yes becomes your mantra for mind-blowing transformation or when you have dug yourself into such a deep hole that there is no way out but a mandatory intervention of something has to f😎king change. That moment that transforms your mind and ignites your soul can be fueled when you follow through with […]
