Tuesdays and Thursdays are little bridges that connect “oh shit” to “almost there” to “thank God!”

Sometimes it is helpful to remind yourself the goal is to win.

Two wolves January 20, 2017 8:13 pm

The Two Wolves
A Cherokee elder was teaching his grandchildren about life.
He said to them, “A fight is going on inside me… it is a terrible fight between two wolves.
One wolf represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, hatefulness, and lies.
The other stands for joy, peace, love, hope, humbleness, kindness, friendship, generosity, faith, and truth.
This same fight is going on inside of you, and inside every other person, too.”
The children thought about it for a minute. Then one child asked his grandfather,
“Which wolf will win?”
The Cherokee elder replied…
“The one you feed.”

I feel I could be so much greater than the person I am if it weren’t for the person I am standing in the way.

"The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. What is called resignation is confirmed desperation. From the desperate city you go into the desperate country, and have to console yourself with the bravery of minks and muskrats. A stereotyped but unconscious despair is concealed even under what are called the games and amusements of mankind. There is no play in them, for this comes after work. But it is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things." -Henry David Thoreau

No more dreams November 16, 2015 12:16 pm

My dreams have been replaced by the constant pursuit of the dollar. Society has succeeded in beating me down and erasing my soul. I am blank. I am an automaton. A cog in the wheel. I live for the sole purpose of moving money from one hand to the other.
