Freedom over “safety”

You can judge folks by the words they use. My main model before Allie and Roxy said "I can't" a lot. I mean, all the time. It was like her catch phrase. No coincidence she never got good at anything. You'll also meet folks who don't let the little stuff…

If you wait too long to get started…

Mom and I used to butt heads. Looking back, I realize that it's because we're pretty much the same person. Except, she didn't live to see me shine. She played Chopin and Beethoven on the piano. I played ABBA and Journey. She spoke five languages fluently. I speak one and…

Solid process especially helps reckless types

Two things you'll never see on this blog - dishonesty, and me stealing someone else's images. I can't stand stock images either. Especially when someone who claims to be a "lifestyle blogger" uses them. If you're a lifestyle blogger, that means you've lived an interesting life. Right? Therefore, you should…

Recovering from a Psychic Vampire attack

Almost thirty years ago, I had my first misfortunate encounter of a psychic vampire. Afterwards, I felt like I had lost a part of my soul and it took quite awhile to recover from that attack. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, read on. You need to…

Down to 13 meals a week

There are certain things that get better with age. However, metabolism isn’t one of them. Awhile back, I took a good, hard look in the mirror and saw a few pounds of belly fat that could definitely go away. Playing the odds, it’s OK to store fat elsewhere. On your…

Stinky, starving artists vs the real deal

I've met artists who actually make a pretty good living doing the things they love. But first, I'm going to talk about the opposite. The stinky, starving artist. He's at the art gallery, selling his paintings. And he stinks so much that you don't even want to have a conversation…
