NanoWriMo: Week 1

Week one of my first National Novel Writing Month participation is coming to a close. Definitely a great decision on my part (it happens occasionally) to jump in. I've shown up. I've gotten great word counts in, and most importantly, I've been forced to follow a rule of first drafts that I usually ignore, which... Continue Reading →

Compared to You…

There's a constant debate in my house about my workload. I use the word to refer to everything I try to accomplish in a day. The details are irrelevant as the point is this: I don't care what everyone else does. I don't care how other people look. I don't care. That's not why I... Continue Reading →

Law of Attraction Laws

I went through a Law of Attraction bootcamp recently. Excellent way to re-attune yourself to the workings of your conscious and unconscious mind, especially with how they mingle with the world around us. Or, with a more jaded audience, instigate more hopeful nonsense that we actually make ourselves, and our lives, better, despite ourselves.  Whichever one... Continue Reading →

Value in Blogging

I take too much time away. It's been... well, about months since I've posted anything, which simply lines up perfectly with my state of underachieving. Recently, I read a quote that went something like this:Accept who you are... if you're a jerk, accept that you're a jerk. Then let it go, and move on. So, I'm... Continue Reading →

Revisting Cliches

It's what's on the inside that counts. Stop and smell the roses. Being broke is a temporary situation. Being poor is a state of mind. All in good time. All talk and no action. That's soo cliché.  cli·ché  [klee-shey, kli-]  noun a trite, stereotyped expression; a sentence or  phrase, usually expressing a popular or   commonthought or idea, that has lost originality,   ingenuity, and impact by long overuse, as sadder but wiser, or strong as an ox. (in art, literature, drama, etc.) a trite or hackneyed plot, character development, use of color,musical  expression, etc. anything that has become trite or commonplace  through overuse. ...That doesn't make it untrue, right? Generative Thinking I... Continue Reading →

Maybe It’s Okay…?

I live a schizophrenic life... As I try to become a "better" person through Law of Attraction books, meditation (just started so have yet to feel the impact), and other such positivity experiments, I'm pulled back to realism and cynicism by my significant other who blatantly rejects the idea of positive thinking. Then I scan... Continue Reading →

We want it now!

I went to see a Hindu guru speak once, and everything he said translated in my head to: It's already inside you, just stop ignoring it. Information that is both frustratingly NOT-useful, and completely life-changing. Let's be honest- we'd rather not have it, than wait, or work, for it Living really should be simple, but how we should live is... Continue Reading →
