Constant Contact

“Unpopular opinion: No one needs to text you and tell you they are busy and will respond later. If they don’t respond they are busy. People are not required to be constantly available to you or you to them. Even your significant other. Learn to give people space.” -unknown I blame everything on the internet. […]

It’s getting cold. They’re getting bold(er). Passing out smarmy smiles and laughable smolders Meet eyes and hold Shoot your shot is what they’re told To tell him off or give the cold shoulder? But a little attention amounts to (fool’s) gold He knows that is all it takes, so monkey lines are doled Longing for […]

week fifty-two: There is No Such Thing as Fear – There is Only the Known and Unknown (a repost)

Another piggyback post! Some writers just convey my thoughts better than I can.

Last Wednesday, I spoke on how unlearning some things we were taught and stepping out of your own way can pave a new path; I know some folks will never try because they’re scared—scared of failing. Scared of what others may think. Scared of success. I’m speaking to myself here, too.

 What kind of life are we living if fear pulls the strings? What kind of life awaits if we go after what we want?

week fifty-one

One major thing I’ve unlearned as an adult is that the career path you take after high school or college commencement does not have to be the only path. Yes, for some that path is very neat and clear and they do that one thing forever. But for the rest of us? It’s a no, […]
