hide the body

hide the body

I’m not sure why but I am experiencing strange recurring dreams. One more so than the other. I usually don’t dream at all so I find this fascinating. I also figure that writing it down can’t help. Maybe a brighter mind can sift through the things that goes on inside...

sacrifice

sacrifice

I think we are all called to greatness. All of us, without exception, and that especially includes you. I think this is why we are here although some of us get lost along the way. We forget and ignore what we can be and instead focus our efforts reminding ourselves ...

bird calls

bird calls

I learned something in the early hours and the darkness today as I waited for my favourite coffee shop to open. I learned that I don’t hear the birds sing because I am always in a rush to get to the next thing. A rush might be overstating it as a lot of my life is...

quiet

quiet

I never craved quiet when I was young. Now, I can’t get enough of it.  It takes me an hour to drive in to work every morning, and that time was filled with listening to sports analysis, which typically did nothing more than make me angry about things I had no business...

a new path

a new path

Today a new journey begins. A journey of fewer words but of new dreams. I originally called this daily work of my ‘ten minas’ after the parable of the ‘ten talents; in the bible. My goal was simple. I set out to prove that I am a indeed a writer by writing. After over...

love thyself

love thyself

The English language evolved over time and possessive words like me, mine, yours, ours no longer have alternate companions. We no longer say thee, thou, or thine. It seems so long ago. A distant forgotten time, but there was something beautiful about those words. They...

a glass of water revisited

a glass of water revisited

The pessimist looks at a half empty glass and is concerned with what is not there. An optimist look at the same half full glass and focuses on what is actually there. A good engineer wonders what the heck is wrong with both of them and begins immediately to work on a...

if at first

if at first

If at first you don’t succeed fail and fail again. Learn to fail very well and at last you will succeed. It’s unavoidable. Nobody can fail all the time, although you can certainly go on quite the streak, and nobody can succeed all the time. This means that the ups and...

weekend quotable no. 184

Not my circus, not my monkeys. Irena Kieszkowski (Polish Proverb)   The drama that just landed on your lap is not your circus and those are not your monkeys. We all have our own circus and our own monkeys and there is no need to embrace, borrow, or adopt somebody...

weekend quotable no. 183

weekend quotable no. 183

Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears. Les Brown   Are you living your dreams or living out your fears? If I had to make an educated bet it would be the latter rather than the former. That is what a statistical analysis of the...

two sides of criticism

two sides of criticism

There are two types of criticism. Both are unwanted if we can be honest with ourselves. The first type comes from those who love us or support our dreams. This type of criticism aims to make us better. The second type comes at us from people who are jealous or just...

finding the time

finding the time

Let’s get one thing straight. There will never be enough time. Period. End of sentence. Feel free to drop the mic right here, but that might be a little over the top. There is never enough time but that doesn’t mean that you can’t get what you want with what you’ve...

pearly gates

pearly gates

Many people search for a meaning in their life and some give up on that search. I sometimes wonder if we misunderstand what it means to search. We see it as having figured out what will make us happy and working hard to get there. But the search for meaning is not a...

just say yes!

just say yes!

Just say yes. Yes to your dreams. Yes to a possibilities that seem almost always out of reach. Say yes without knowing how to you’ll get there. Yes without knowing where the money is going to come from. Without knowing how you are ever going to find the time. Just say...

meaningful work and deadlines

meaningful work and deadlines

Fear a little less in your life by doing more every day. After all if you are afraid and you let fear to sit at the head table, when are you going to get the chance to sit next to your dreams? Work and deadlines are the key to fighting our fears. We will always...
