Circumstantially – Crap
Existentially – Great!
I’ve never considered myself a victim of the events in my life and that is why I make a difference between how things are going and how I feel.
How am I? Great!
Life doesn’t have a pause button. You can’t stop everything while you grab a drink.
Life doesn’t have a rewind button. You can’t go back in time and, it should be said, rewind doesn’t change the story.
Life doesn’t have a fast-forward button. You can’t skip the bad parts to get to the happy ending.
Life has only has one button. Play!
our playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.
— David | The Do Village
Keeping the child in you alive is also about an absence of social anxiety and the boldness to be yourself.
“Most of us have two lives. The life we live, and the unlived life within us. Between the two stands Resistance.”
“To yield to Resistance deforms our spirit. It stunts us and makes us less than we are and were born to be.”
– Steven Pressfield, The War of Art
This blog is my way of combating the Resistance! I have resisted blogging though that is not the battle being fought. It is the ideas in the posts that are my battles.
Ten months ago, a private forum that I participated in shut its doors. It was there that I shared my ideas and thoughts. Exposing them made me act on them. Since then the Resistance has been winning and I have felt stunted.
It is now time to start winning the war!
