It all starts with the words you choose. Words are power. In my last post, I briefly mentioned part of my current thought overhaul with the example of replacing “Why can’t?” with “Why not?”  The more I examine the words I use, the more I discover untapped potential. Saying why can’t is limiting and feels like […]

thought overhaul

Questioning old stories from my past related to work, play, money, love and everything in between has become my new favorite thing to do. It’s pretty much become the thing I do. Some of the stories are helping me, so I keep those. Other stories are dragging me down. I examine why. I call it […]

I got called out at a coffee shop today for letting a nonword out of my mouth. “Do you have like-a coffee iced thing?” My appreciation for eloquent speech and the preservation of the English language has slowly waned in my post-academic life.

  I lovingly refer to my own path of enlightenment as ‘nolightenment’ on some days. There is nothing Zen or Yogic about the suffering I cause myself rushing through life. As if running around in circles will make those less than, imperfect moments restored to perfection. I make up all sorts of drama in my day-to-day […]

Time Slips by Passes Comes Leaves Isn’t real We made it up The calendar on my wall And the tick tock of the clock Are the biggest lies of them all Time Heals all wounds Is just untrue The greatest Shaman to my heart Wasn’t 10 revolutions around the Sun But one lunar cycle In […]
