week seventeen

I think the only reason someone is jealous is because she has failed to create a fulfilling life. She thinks of and views herself in a state of lack. Anyone doing “it” or having “it” is competition instead of inspiration, a rival instead of a teacher. Healthy admiration is normal; being unpleasant toward someone because […]

My mom used to tell me “sorry is a sorry word”, meaning don’t tell me, show me you’re sorry and don’t so that shit again!. That stuck with me.  One thing I despise is the hackneyed term “sorry”. It’s used when another patron and I reach for the same item at the store. I’ve heard […]

distractions

I was just having a conversation about people vying for attention and longing for connections, but instead of building and maintaining real, in-the-flesh relationships, they opt for more followers.

week twelve
