Doors close and others open; sometimes we need to step away, so that we can take steps in the right direction. Life is a gamble, and you never may know what the future holds, but just know that the future only arrives for those who can let go of the past, for the past and … Continue reading Acceptance.
Blind spots, we all have them. Visually, mentally, relationally - we are afflicted. We can believe with certainty that our reality is so, but our blind spots make it possible for this reality to simultaneously not be so. It pains me to know that there is always something that I'm missing. I continuously feel that … Continue reading Blind spots.
If you want to reach the highest heights - you must work. You must grind harder than anyone. You must work intelligently and you must adapt to changing circumstances, pivoting to further your mission, else risk losing effectiveness and efficiency, ultimately falling by the way side. Blood thirsty hounds are hot on your trail, and … Continue reading You must WORK.
As we move through life, we experience pain, trial and tribulation. Negative experiences, bad relationships, failed attempts, financial difficulties, difficulty relating to and reconciling with parents and other relatives; difficult housemates, co-workers, bosses, and confusion over our life purpose, just to name a few. The adversity that we encounter during life has been presented to … Continue reading Trial, wisdom; test.
Do not choose comfort over fear, over growth. A life lived in comfort is a life drowned in stagnant water, and stagnant water isn't fit for consumption, this is where dreams go to die. The choices of others to suffocate themselves in comfort are not reflective of your worth, of your value. No, these people … Continue reading Fear, or growth?

Over time, we begin to reap the fruits of our labour, materially, physically, emotionally and in particular, relationally. The relationships in our life serve a purpose, be it emotionally, financially, or physically, and so, as our needs … Continue reading Onwards and upwards: connecting different.
Being wrong has never felt so sweet. Emotions are a mysterious thing, especially not being raised in a way that promoted emotional intelligence, so of course I was wrong. I was wrong because I didn't know what success felt like—I had no frame of reference. History, the harshest teacher, had taught me anxiety and uncertainty … Continue reading Communication, oh silly me!
I've been toxic lately. I'm not trying to, or going to excuse my behaviour. I was wrong, I feel guilty and I feel painfully self aware of my own toxic tendencies. I have to forgive myself though, because I know this is just the external manifestation of internal pain. Still, no excuse for my behaviour; … Continue reading My Confession.
A bit abstract, perhaps too forward-a-thought; mind runs like projector reel, light up this theatre, cos' life's but a stage. The sun throws it's rays through the corner pane; throwin' shade. The way the sun dances, it's runs all over the room. Cold are the spaces where the sun doth not shine, like walkin' round, … Continue reading entropy.
Life is like sand through the fingers; the more you try and hold on, the more it slips away from you. Curious how we Humans seem to take forever to learn a lesson, and only after enduring the pain of being do we begin to learn. It seems as if it's impossible to hold onto … Continue reading Sand.
