Growing up in Texas, well probably just growing up anywhere, your parents always had some saying or thing that they repeated all the time that more than likely drove you crazy. You could probably sit down and write a list of them. “Shoulda Woulda Coulda, but you didn’t” is something that I heard a lot … More Shoulda Woulda Coulda
“You’re spread too thin to be useful.” Harsh, I know. But I, once, said that to someone because it was true and I felt they would benefit from hearing it. Was I right? I’ll probably never know. Now, I feel those words echoing back at me. Spinning plates or endless phone notifications. Whatever visual creates … More Chasing
I find it essential that we take the time to realize our planet will persevere regardless of whether or not we choose to poison our air and water ways. The planet provides for us but will not protect us from ourselves. Earth will still be floating in space for a long time after the human … More Naturally, Garbage.
Life has been busy (read: non-prioritized) so I apologize for my absence. I’ve had a lot of things asking for my attention and I said “yes” to one too many. I’ve written before about being selfish with your time. This is one of those times where a reminder was needed to keep my guard up … More Spite’ll do.
“I don’t wanna. Not really. I mean… I do but, you know… what do I even say?” “They’re going to stop loving me if I tell them.” “How do I bring this up without pissing them off?” “Money just isn’t something we talk about… ever.” “They only said that because I’ve said/done worse to them … More Growth From Difficult Conversations

I was lamenting this to a friend this morning and talking about the difficulty I had of … More Keeping Promises to Yourself
Maybe it’s because today was a rough day at work. It was going great and I was killing it at my new job. Until I had to show my boss the things that I’ve been learning (and I’ve actually been working hard to learn all this new stuff) and what happens? I fuck up a … More Let’s Get Funky! (Perspective, I’m in a funk.)
Titles mean very little at some point. Like, I don’t know, the grave. Obviously King or Queen had it’s heyday. Politicians titles still have some pull here or there but didn’t save some from the guillotine when the time came. Ranks like Captain or Lieutenant can garnish some respect in certain circles but civies don’t … More “Leader” vs. Leader (not about bicycles)
Work through your bulls**t morning and own the day. WOO! Explicit. … More Crushing Your Mornings
Has your last day ever crossed your mind? What if you knew it was tomorrow? What’s the first thing you would do on your last day? Me? I’d probably reach out to as many people as possible who’ve meant something to me and tell them that I love them while eating a huge stack of … More The Last Day…
