As we change...

So yesterday i got the email from Anya Marina that she was not going to be working at the best radio station in San Diego...fm949. She has been offered a recording deal. She is an amazing DJ and a great person in general. I couldn't be happier for her.

If there is one thing I have learned in life it is that the one thing you can always count on is change. Life comes at you fast and you have to be able to adapt. If you are getting comfortable in your need to change or life will send you that change. We may not see routine in everyday life, but if you look at your life closely, you will see that you have developed routines in your life.

Routine can be good, but it should not be the measure of your life. One must always expect change and with that change will come opportunity. It seems that life gives us the clues and cues we need to be successful. When you are sitting around your house and feeling down or sorry, and someone invites you to go out for drinks, dinner or lunch...take that opportunity. Often times we are selfish and say, no i need down time. Trust me when i tell you, you will have down time when you die. Take the cue and go with that friend, go see that movie, go to that party.

Doing something different can inspire you and give you a direction that you didn't know existed. We tend to get stuck in our routines and let everything be, because we like be comfortable. I say change. Change your life and open your eyes to all that abounds. Life is all about the connections we make. We make them everyday. The person you smile at at the grocery store, the person in the starbucks you say hello to, the girl you sit next to at the pool. Sometimes we try to figure out what that connection means and the bottom line, for me is that we just need to appreciate that the connection happened.

I tell this to all my friends, you can drive down the same road a million times and see the same boring scenery, or you can open your eyes and drive down that same road an notice something you didn't notice the drive before that. Our perspective and our attitude are everything. If you are in a funk, choose to get out of it. It really is that simple. Stop dwelling on what you don't have and focus on all that you have. Your life should become and attitude of gratitude and it has to start with waking thoughts. Don't let negativity have any part of your life. Recognize it is always there,but know how to get rid of it. It can consume and kill you if you don't.

Love your life and the connections in it. Become your life, don't become your negativity.

Feels like a throat punch to my heart

So, I thought today was going to be just another Sunday of lounging around and netflixing.  I don't think I have ever been so wrong in my life.  To start with, Facebook reminded me of my memories.  I happened to click on a friends link and decided to follow another link to my very first girlfriends sisters page.  Its random how I got there, but I blame facebook.

To my shock, I saw that her sister had passed on the 22nd of November.  I was shocked because I knew that she wasn't that old.  I reached out to an old mutual acquaintance and found out it was pretty sudden and unexpected.  That had me in some kinda mood.  Because of that, I began to text and email friends and check in and make sure then were okay.

I got a text message from a close colleague I used to work with at a previous job.

Beck: "whats shakin CB"
Me: "Not much just wanted to say hello.  Had a wake up call today.  Found out first girlfriends sister just passed away.  So sad...she was young"

Screw back up plans

Yes I said it.  Yes I have had quite a few unsuccessful ventures and I have recently started reading blogs that suggest backup plans.  I don't agree and I will tell you why.

When you have a back up plan you have an "oh shit that didn't work and I have to do something about it". Its like whatever it is going on in your life is going to fail or stop being at some point. Newsflash: You are correct!  NOTHING lasts forever. Your job, your marriage, your income stream, your family and most certainly not your startup or your job.  For those of you wishing to go back to the old days, its not going to happen.  The age of chivalry is dying and the startup that you create will be dead within 10-15 years.  We don't live in our parents or grandparents economy. Hell the way we communicate is changing. See example below and try and decipher what I am saying to you


Did you figure it out yet.  If so, please pat yourself …

Just a friendly update on me :-)

Hey everyone

Just wanted to give an update. You may remember that I said I was going to be coming back to California, well it is official.  I am heading down May 1. I will most likely take the train and stop in Napa to visit my cousin Stephen Bordes at his winery for a day or two.  From there, I will catch a train to San diego.

I am currently looking for work and open to any positions that may be available, I just ask that you don't hold it against me because I have a masters degree.  I have seen many companies shy away from hiring me because I have a Masters Degree.  I am honestly looking to get off my feet and find a base of operation. My home is California and I know that now.  I am native and the air, soil and water are in my bones.

I am looking to establish which means I will need to find a place to live (that I pay for monthly), maybe even get a car (down the road) for now I know that I will have to use the bus and I am okay with that. I am nervous as hell about this move …
