Darkness

Darkness

“Does any of this even make sense?”

“Am I just wasting my time?”

“I’m the one that allowed this to happen, maybe there is just something wrong with me…”

“Fuck it, I’ll just stay in bed today instead.”

All things that went through my head this morning when I woke up out of a dead sleep at 4:50 am to see that yet again, someone didn’t follow through on what they promised they would do.

Once again, I let myself get a little bit of hope towards someone else’s empty promises. Continue reading “Darkness”

Remember…

Remember…

Just remember… how you do one thing is how you do ALL things.

Pay attention.
Don’t be a lazy ass. In ANY areas of your life.
Be present.
Do the work. Yes, even when you don’t feel like it.
Call your mom.
Say please and thank you.
Smile. Continue reading “Remember…”

Live for the Weekend?

Live for the Weekend?

I was standing at the fair last night and couldn’t help but overhear a conversation that two women were having about how bad it sucked that they had to go to work the next day. Yes, I also was tired and the thought of waking up at 6 am the next morning didn’t sound too exciting to me either. But they went on to say “ya, but tomorrow is Friday and then we have the whole weekend to do whatever we want. I WORK FOR THE WEEKEND. I LIVE FOR THE WEEKEND”.

My Natural Instinct

My Natural Instinct

My natural instinct is to be lazy. To sleep a lot. To eat like shit. To be in my prime from about 11am – 3pm. Sometimes I want to hustle from 6am and stay up super late on my laptop. But most of the time I want to sleep until 10 and be lazy.

Just because I WANT to do that, doesn’t mean that’s what I get to do. Continue reading “My Natural Instinct”

Open Your Eyes

Open Your Eyes

Sometimes our eyes are opened for us.
Sometimes we’re put into a situation, unexpectedly that changes our perspective and shifts our focus for a moment.
It reminds us of something we wanted, or loved or felt.
Maybe it’s something we pushed down, something we swept under the rug and convinced ourselves we didn’t need at all…simply because it was easier to tell ourselves the story that we didn’t need it instead of waking up every day feeling a void.
And we’re really good story tellers when we need to be (well, at least I am). So, we don’t even realize that we’re missing it in the first place. Continue reading “Open Your Eyes”

Live Life On Purpose

Live Life On Purpose

Do you remember that scene in Sweet Home Alabama where Reese Witherspoon’s character is sitting in the coon dog cemetery and she looks up at Jake and tells him how she loves her life in New York but then she goes back to her home town and that just fits too?

Well that’s how I feel.

That’s how I’ve always felt. Continue reading “Live Life On Purpose”

Quit Apologizing For Nothing

Quit Apologizing For Nothing

How often do you find yourself saying “Oh, I’m sorry” for no reason at all. You have nothing to be apologizing for but for some reason our reaction when we make someone uncomfortable is to say “I’m sorry”

BUT I think it does even deeper than that. Are we playing down our own amazing-ness by always apologizing for nothing?
