    My Personality Doesn't Lend Itself Well to Doing This

    I have the type of personality that can let things get out of perspective so easily - mostly toward the romantic side of things or the positive side of things - that rose-colored glasses syndrome I have had since birth! I am also a very passionate person and get excited and...

    I Think So

    I like to stop every now and again and sort of look at my life and where I'm going, what I'm doing and so on. Losing sight of what matters most can happen to the best of us, putting your life back in perspective now and again can help you live better. I believe that.

    Information Is Your Best Friend.

    With new information you got the tools to think beyond your older self. A movie is just a movie for someone who doesn't think beyond the explosion and/or beautiful lady. A movie can be something extraordinary when you think about it. Don't be afraid of new information...

    Perspectives and Truth

        Sometimes life is so confusing, and we cannot make sense of the details.    It seems to leave us with no choice, but to find conclusions in our own minds.    These conclusions often, for us, become our reality, and we cling desperately to...

    Snakes And Ropes

    When I find myself losing ground perceptually speaking, I often turn to the written word for comfort and guidance. And it always works, that is, I always find, or am directed (by the universe?) to that which I am in need of--usually a profound statement or story that helps me to...

    It's Hard Not Letting Work Get To You

    I try to not let my job get to me. I'm a personal trainer and love interacting with my clients and helping them towards their goal but when problems arise from select co-worker(s), it's really hard for me to focus on what's important: my client, their happiness and then my...
