Life is What Happens

Life is what happens when you close your eyes? or open them? Maybe it depends on how you are looking at them. Are you looking through them like nothing else exists. Or do you open them and bask in the World and life around you? I can’t decide which. I like the assumption that is when…

Like Childhood Whispers

Is it just me or do we all need to gravitate towards who we once were. And not just anybody. The person that we were before the World taught us not to smile, how not to be happy. We were told from such a young age that you better grow up to be somebody and…

Choose Life

Somewhere amongst the chaos tranquility lies. It lies waiting for us to acknowledge it’s presence like it has never left. They say do what you love and you will never work a day. Never does a hard working man have regrets. Unless of course it is because of a life wasted looking to far ahead…

When Greed Gets in the Way.

Embrace yourself and sit in the tranquil silence that is your life. For without knowing what the end goal maybe we have to have complete faith. Sometimes I bask within the journey that got me to where I needed to go. Because without a strong conviction of self it is so easy to find yourself…

To My Younger Self

The one thing I think about alot is if I could tell my younger self anything what would it be. If I somehow had the power to stop anything from happening would I? Or would I just let it all be. Think about the butterfly effect and the ripple. If one thing ceased to exist…

The Virtuous Value of Self Worth

Altering the Course of the World

I think about how volatile the World is these days and can’t help but think about how it came to be. The continuous pollution of our own thoughts has deteriorate our inner being. Walking on egg shells we try to get the approval of those we don’t even know. There reaction to who we are…

True Colours

I have been a constant work in progress since my son was born. I don’t believe that we necessarily are destined to stay the same. We grow, we expand, we evolve. We are no more the person yesterday than we are today and tomorrow is always just on the horizon. At times trying to understand…

The Biggest Sin of All

Sometimes not knowing the direction you are going can actually save you in a lot of ways. My fear of commitment kept me from tying myself to anybody for too long. Yes I long for companionship but sometimes I wonder if maybe we allowed somebody else’s dictation determine how we value our own self worth….
