(re)Discovering Discipline

As I’m sure many of you know I was once a pretty good athlete. I am that typical “peaked in high school” type of former athlete, where once I got to university and fell in love with partying and laziness I fell away from that life. Unlike those other peaked in high school types I don’t blame..

How and Why to Keep Moving

How and Why to Keep Moving

I consider myself the consummate failure when it comes to life in general. I fail at most everything I do, in fact the only thing I think I’ve succeeded at is my relationship and even that is debatable (you’d have to ask my partner what she thinks). Right now as I work on a new project..

Taking Risks and Trying New Things

I’m addicted to new experiences and new things, it’s a bit of a problem but that I’ve touched on but as it stands I don’t think it is really a major negative in my life.  I’m always trying something new, throwing myself into new things and taking..

My Curse, My Gift

My Curse, My Gift

I might seem to be harping on about this but it’s been something that has been on my mind for a bit now.  I think embracing my creativity has caused me more pain in a way because it has taught me that I’m only ever truly happy when I’m working on my art.

I’ve been listening to a lot of lectures and podcasts lately that center around personality types and psychological motivation. These got me doing some online personality tests then I did a Creative achievement test and a few others (just to be thorough and because I was bored). I learned a bit..

Nobody Cares – and that’s a good thing

Nobody Cares – and that’s a good thing

This is one of those things that is easier to say than it is to believe. I think we are all so caught up in ourselves that we find it hard to comprehend that no one really cares and that if they do it really does not matter. I know for me this was something that took a while to sink in.

“Infinite Jest” and Inspiration

“Infinite Jest” and Inspiration

I finished reading “Infinite Jest” by David Foster Wallace a few weeks ago and have been sitting and digesting it for a bit.  I know that millions of words have probably been written about this particular book and I’m not going to add much to the conversation there, instead I want to examine..

Taking risks for your dreams

Taking risks for your dreams

This all can be summed up as this being something I wish I could do, something I wish I was confident enough to do. Right now I know a few people in my life who are taking risks to chase their dreams and I applaud their bravery and wish I had enough courage to follow them.

Relinquishing Freedom

Relinquishing Freedom

There comes a time when you have to ask yourself how much you’re willing to give away to feel safe. How much you’re willing to sacrifice to not be offended. How much you’re okay with giving up in order to live a comfortable life.

Disappointment, Delay, Doldrums

Disappointment, Delay, Doldrums

I remember my younger self and I wonder what happened.  I looked at the world with so much potential, I was going to make a change I just didn’t know how.  I was energetic and full of hope.  I was excited and eager to explore and change the world.  Then something changed, then I grew up.
