What Do You Want To Do When You Grow Up?

Only a teacher (of some 35 years) would know ‘how’ to do it.

It, the thing you want to hold onto will be your life. Or at least in the broadest sense of the word.

People like parents, teachers, adults and others have the experience and detachment to know that no one can do this for you, but good people can support and guide you.

In this case, none other than a magnificent teacher and scholar will show you the way.

He is also famous, he may hold your attention long enough to send you off in the right direction.

If you are curious, watch the vid bellow.

It is about living your life: job, relationships, hobbies, interest, up and downs, coping with change, your life!

Morning Wakeup

Starting with a friendly sounding acoustic guitar…

Do a three minute stretch before getting out of bed.

Wash and shave, using the restroom as is your custom.

A fresh breakfast with hot cereal, hotter coffee and a journal entry as is my practice.

Perhaps a meditation before a good 5 minute dressing with complimentary stretches before putting on suitable outdoor wares for a walk or drive.

The weekend is here and there are many chores to complete this Mother’s Day weekend.

Least of which is a haircut from Jimmy’s Barber.

The Form Of Good: Beauty and Truth

To see inwardly and become aware of the moment will help one see truth and beauty.

But to really understand and research the idea, books ranging on many ideas are wanted and necessary to develop a probing interest towards intent and the meaning of living a good life without unnecessary expectation, pain and suffering, or unnecessary loss.

Most, believe in the ‘ups and downs’ of a good life.

Most, believe this because experience shows we can not control much of what goes on in the world.

Some, believe the good life is about seeing that ‘no harm’ and attending to the day to day is a good foundation.

Much is achieved in the world when people who essentially practice this ‘good life’ will cooperate and colaborate.

With some luck and good fortune, a life is a wonderful experience.

To use the ‘proper use of impressions’ are to live well and prosper.

‘Live Long And Prosper’

be prepared to give a few things a rest and live moderately,

be ready to fail and learn from small failures to overcome it,

be proactive and use your skills to practice the common sense in the list below,

be your best self….

Good Sleep

My sleep session report from #pillow_app

Between 7 and 8 hours each night, gives the body time to rest and repair.

Some problems, like the cold or the flu take many days.

Sleep keeps the body prepared to do all the nightly functions like digestion and other activities we need to research and understand in order to optimize and use it properly.

Being organic and sensitive to many toxic chemicals and conditions in the environment, it is also necessary to study and discover better ways to protect and take care of this most valuable real-estate.

Being able to maintain a good balance in the mind and body may be the most important decision a person can make.

A good place to start is a regular night sleep, don’t let a myth like ‘only the weak sleep’, prevent the proper use of impressions.

I’m Thinking About Mistakes

In my life there are more mistakes being made every moment in the name of change.

I’d like to work them out to evolve like everyone.

I’ve been trying to do a few things for many years and I keep making mistakes.

It is part of the journey.

I love to work and write and live and laugh.

There is a lot more to do than change and make mistakes.

But, why not learn from my mistakes.

Reading Maria’s article above, I realize I have a lot to learn and think about to recover and evolve.

Taking mistakes to the next level:  identify and stop or replace them and do what is best for you.

I constantly move on the job.  I mistake things and manipulate them to correct the mistake.

I like to stop.  Recover and carry on.

It is a quick fix.  To stop, identify the mistake and substitute a better solution to fix my immediate problem.

In time, I evolve and gain order and direction in my life.

You can do the same.

Perhaps, not the wisest solution, but it works, it is simple and puts me back on track with my work and goals.

Vaping

90 days, after vaping, severe lung damage…

The median age is 24 years old,

90 percent male,

86 % THC use,

What happens to these young people?

Does it heal?

Some need lung transplants.

Maybe it will be found that it is completely reversible?

We know little yet,

There is a lack of real data but a lot of study on mice.

Some genetics will let people vape their whole lives without much harm.

The devices and additives will cause a problem.

No answers yet, but red flags abound.

Studies on mice show effects on every bit of the lung.

Big study is going to happen.

Why care about any of this?

Is your good health important?

Of course it is, this is why study is important.

A great motto is ‘do no harm’.

 

 

 

How To Properly Make Impressions

You can only control what you make.

If you build it, it could, would, should?

Be careful with your decision about building anything in your life.

Today, your digital footprint will last a very long time.

Mark what you do, your environmental foot print will also potentially cause harm.

What about making you, is there any harm in it?

We don’t have much choice coming into the world, but what we build will make an impact.

Consider weather it is worth cultivation?

Seize this opportunity and build a life with decisions that are sound and leave you content.

The Writer’s Dilemma

I’m writing this poem or short story.

I don’t know which one it is.

Hell, I’m thinking, I’m the main character.

But, I keep worrying about my editor.

What about marketing or getting an agent?

But, I’m the one creating all the drama.

The plot starts out with a philosopher/writer.

Who really wants to live the ‘good life’.

Me or him gets into a little trouble along the way.

I am acting like an ass at work and end up finding work at night.

My dad dies and I go home to help out like I planned ten years ago.

Or am I just going to get help for myself?

Okay, so maybe, rather than tell the whole plot, I can show it.

Like, I keep running from one bad habit to another.  (Show it.)

Now, I’m running from myself or was I doing that from the start?  (Show it.)

At least, I have the blog.

I like to journal.

I may publish a journal for others to use.

The story writes itself.

And people are sometimes into writing stuff as a job or vocation.

It’s good to show the epic without the moralizing or story telling!

I’ve got this vision, but I’m stuck in process.

Is this what is called writer’s block?
