not for me

not for me

  Sometimes what we learn as children doesn’t serve us well in adulthood. There are many things that do but I don’t think any of us were sufficiently encouraged to say no. Our parents wanted our obedience, for obvious reason, but while we were kept safe, we overlooked...
the unexpected

the unexpected

Why are we always surprised that the unexpected happens? Why are we so afraid to be in the flow and dare to explore the unknown and embrace the undiscovered? We focus all our attention on sucking the nuance out of everything we do because deep down, somewhere...

what if?

There are many things that we think we can’t do. We tell our selves many times, many things that may or may not go wrong. We don’t push hard enough, we don’t try often enough, and we discourage ourselves to get up fast enough. But what if? What if today was different?...

unfinished

Finished is better than unfinished, but unfinished is better than not having the fortitude to begin at all. That is something we should never lose sight of. We need to remember to contently welcome long periods of unfinished, because they are better than having...

addicted to silence

I have ran from silence for all my life. In the car I always had music playing or I would listened to various sports talk programs radio. I don’t recall a time, until very recently, when I allowed my mind to wonder freely while driving for long distances. I am amazed...

what’s next?
