Seventy-Six

76 Leave while you’re on top; quit while you’re ahead…? It can be sage advice, depending… You see and hear about this often from entertainers, actors, musicians, sports stars, and other high-profile types. But what about the average Joe’s? Does this apply to us? Is it ever justified to quit? To get out? To leave […]

Boozy Brunch

I love my streaming playlists. Listen to ‘em daily. We’ve all experienced how powerful music is to our lives. No matter your flavor, music’s power to influence how we feel, and transport us, even if only temporarily, can itself, be intoxicating.  Here’s a recent screenshot I came across of a recommended Spotify playlist. I used […]

Seventy-Five

75 Instructions: Enjoy the journey. Live in the Now. Reduce discontentment by choosing to be happy where you’re at, and with what you’ve got. It’s a choice that we all have to make daily perhaps… at least I do. Another big distinction for me is to manage my expectations. What I “expect” and what life frequently […]

Seventy-Four

74 We tend to get tunnel vision when we’re only thinking about ourselves. The big picture becomes impossible to see. Things eventually get real small and the pressure goes up. Ironically, it’s through service to others- the efforts that bring forth a greater good – the energy that positively affects others – that the self’s needs truly get […]

Seventy-Three

73 Sometimes it’s hard not to… Hard not to look at the faults of others. Hard not to be disappointed. Hard not to be negative. Hard not to get pissed off. Hard not to get down, and not look down on the upside. Sometimes it’s hard not to breakdown. Hard not to meltdown. Hard not to give up. Hard […]

Seventy-Two

72 You and I don’t know many things. For instance: You never know who may be watching you; silently observing you. You never know who may think you’re great. You never know who may think you’re a tool. You never know who you may be influencing positively or negatively. You never know who may be […]

Seventy-One

71 You shouldn’t need a fucking invite to be friendly and nice to others. << There’s irony right there… see it? Maybe I’m old fashioned. Maybe I took my mother’s expectation to treat people as I wish to be treated to heart. Maybe I believe in the value of others. Even others who have different views […]

Seventy

70 Does it matter? Does any of it really matter? I guess that depends on what IT is… IT is anything that you spend significant amounts of your time on. IT is anything that you invest significant amounts of energy on. IT is anything that you care about. IT is anything that you’re passionate about. […]

Sixty-Nine

69 How do you “come off” to others? What vibes do you send out? Ever really considered it? If not, you should.  These are simple questions that are often deceptively difficult to address objectively. A better question is how’s your “How?” This is asking if you’re truly aware of HOW your communication (verbal and nonverbal) is […]

Sixty-Eight

68 Does it matter to you if people “like” you? Some say it does not matter whatsoever. These types are typically very outspoken about their non-caring which is very NOT non-caring. Of course we all know some assholes that we really do not give two shits if they like us or not because… we don’t like […]
