How To Get It

How do you go about
Getting the things you want?

Do you force yourself through
Circumstances like a pit bull?


Do you aim to achieve until
Someone notices and rewards
You for your efforts?

Do you demand what you want

Growing Pains

I think it absolute SUCKS
How we have to relive certain situations
Until we fully realize the growth
The situation is meant to instill in us



We can all point at
A certain situation that
Makes us say:

Introspection Is The Way

Do you ever get on your own nerves?
Do you ever make yourself angry at yourself?
Do you ever wish you could just shut yourself up?
Do you ever wish you could stop yourself
From doing that same thing over an over again?


I definitely do all of the above

Better Than One Thing

Is there such a thing as
Being better than someone else?

How is "better" qualified?


Better looking
Better educated

Anger, Angry, Angered

The feeling of anger
Is not a comfortable one for me

It's more likely for me to
Breakout in tears from the
Emotion of being anger
Than to unleash a wrath



But given I'm all about
"Self-improvement"

Take Parenting Classes Please

It seems to me that
Parents have a superhuman
ability to abuse every ounce
of self-esteem out of their children
by shaming them to the point
of self-loathing

This is the year 2014 right?


So why are we still bringing
Up children like we're brand-new
At doing it??

It's physically painful for me
To be around parents who
Shame, ridicule, insult, abuse,
Belittle, dismiss, or ignore
Their children

It drives me crazy!
And I'm feeling crazy right now

Please, please, please
Take parenting courses
Before having children

That child you call "crazy";
Just knows you're boring and
Can't help acting out his/her boredom

That talkative annoying child of yours;
Just has a higher IQ than you do

That introverted child
You call weird;
Just has better things to
Entertain in solitude than
To hangout with ordinary people like you

Bottom line
CHILDREN ARE BRILLIANT

They're far smarter than you and I
And we need to stop beating it out of them
With our boring adults tasks and judgments

Sayonara Body

I came across a documentary
On the YouTube
About competitive sports and steroids



There was a horrific scene
Where a bodybuilder
Was using a syringe with a

Feeling of Knowing

To have the feeling of
“Knowing”
Is so precious, rare, and often
Seems more ephemeral than not


Being able to get to
A place where you
Just know:

Managing My Free Time

I have a little bit of a
Hard time managing my free time



The ideal way to spend my
Free time is to focus only
On activities that I
Fully and completely
Want to focus on
But I always end up

A Good Ol' Psychologists

A good therapist assists
With the discovery of the self


A good therapist
Becomes a healer

When you've found a person
Who can counsel you as
Well as guide you to heal;

Me First, Then You First

I have never made it my
Business to think about
Anyone else before thinking
About myself



I know this isn’t something
People like to say (even if they feel this way)
Or that other people can hear without judging

But let me finish…

The Pursuit of Excellence

I really appreciate a pursuit for
Excellence

Not that I'm on one but
To hear people talk about their



Pursuit and the details of
Their journey

Self-Defeat

I had a small conversation
With a friend yesterday and she was
Trying to explain to me that once



You’re aware of a self-defeating behavior

And I was baffled

Choice Is Luxury

I’m still on this "stuff" topic

I wrote about having too much stuff and
I want to go into a quote I wrote a while back:

“Choice is luxury”



Choosing to work
Choosing to take the day off
Choosing to be single or married

Too Much Stuff


How much stuff is too much stuff?
Is it when you have to rent space to
Store all of your stuff?


It is when you don’t need it?
Is two pairs of shoes too much already?

Holy Moly Expensive


I recently bought several things
That I’ve wanted for years



The main reason I never decided to
Buy them is because they’re “pricey”

The way I see it:

Reaction vs. Impulse

I had completed a post before this one
Called "The Spy-Pry",
But when I finished writing it
I realized it was actually a
Rant


Which led me to wonder about the
Difference between
