I tend to air on the side of playing things safe ;)

However, I have come to the realization that each day we are one day closer to death and I for one to not want to live a life of holding back. I want to live a fulfilling life. One where I can say I was true, I was authentic, I pushed myself, and I loved loudly. So here I am, doing something that is kind of uncomfortable: writing and being vulnerable for my many many subscribers. Just kidding haha. Still scary to put my feelings on the internet, even if no one sees them.

Instead of having a busy life, you can have a fulfilling one

What Slow Living is not is slowing down to a snail’s pace that isn’t productive in today’s fast-paced world. Slow living is a mindset. It is slowing down enough to go through your day with purpose.

We spend half of our life accumulating things and half of it trying to get rid of stuff

Keywords: {0}

I think back to those dorm room days long ago and the simple life I had then. The only time I feel that way now is when I hiked and had to to live with just a backpack for a week. Or drove across Canada on a motorbike using only what I carried with me. Staying in a commune for a week when I turned 50. Life doesn’t need to be so complicated. We don’t need more storage solutions or even more storage spaces. This is such a big business now. What we need is less stuff. We all know that feeling of excitement and joy when we buy something new. A dress, A new car. New furniture. But in time the feeling fades and we are not so enamored with our things. Ultimately things can’t make us happy. The peace we seek is elsewhere.

There really is nothing wrong with flipping the script, shaking things up, even just plain old-fashioned starting over

Part of me thought I would have more figured out by this point in my life.  Part of me knew I wouldn’t.  The part of me that knew I wouldn’t is probably the wiser part of me to be honest with you.  What I have figured out over the last four decades though is that if you are doing life right you really never stop learning, evolving, growing and yes, even changing.  I think where the wisdom of age comes in is getting better at recognizing when it’s time to move on and from something, someone or even from an older outdated version of yourself that is no longer serving you and begin to chase after the life you really want.

How to be a wackjob

nobodysreadingme

I have a gentle regard for people who are gently wacked. Gentle wackos amuse me, frustrate me. Anybody with a tinfoil hat will make me smile. People who think the Antarctic doesn’t exist, it’s a wall of ice maintained by NASA scientists. The guy trying to get 500,000 people to invade Area 51 (‘They can’t kill all of us!’) to locate the Roswell Alien. Loopy is good, though if you’re a cean eater make sure you don’t end up in hospital with vitamin, mineral, and nutrient deficiencies. It happens.

I know a lot of vegans, and I rather like them, but they’re the ones who don’t proselytise and deliver sanctimonious lectures.

Less good are the real fucking weirdo wackjobs. PETA springs to mind. An organisation that sanctions violence aginst humans, reckons a dairy farmer’s children ‘deserve to get cancer,’ who firebomb the houses of people involved in animal research. Humans…

Happy Ending

A Struggling Author

All is well that ends well. We all love happy endings. In fact, we all want happy endings with everything and everyone. So do we get it?

I find the concept of “happy endings” pretty funny. For I don’t think that they are possible. Like literally! Come, think about it. If you really enjoy something or your time with someone, you would keep going back to it again and again and again, till you are completely restrained not to. That is when it ends. Or you let it end. At that time, what you feel is anything but happy.

On the other hand, if you hate something from the bottom of your heart and then it comes to a halt, then you are relieved. But seriously, do you feel happy looking back at the entire ordeal. You are just grateful that it got over.

I think that the journey is…

Why are people desperate to find meaning?

Human desperation, Shoveling snow

Probaway - Life Hacks

There are statistics about what Americans do with their time and money and that would seem to be a good proxy for what they find meaningful; and yet a web search didn’t give me what people found meaningful. What is meaningful to you, to me? I sleep the usual amount, and eat the usual amount and yes I find those activities meaningful, but they are driven by animal needs and are not those events that we value most. Or do we? I recently bought a small bottle of Grand Marnier liqueur and discovered that I really like sipping a tiny amount several times a day and letting it just slowly drift back and forth over my tongue. I didn’t seek out this experience, it was just a recommendation by a friend that I might like it, and I do. A single sip of this fluid brings a real pleasure, but…
