love, life and kitties.

I think we try to make it more then it is. We wake each day seeking out some meaning in our life. "What is my purpose?", is the biggest question I hear every day. "What am i supposed to do next with my life?" is another biggie. I think to be fair to that question I throw out my usual disclaimer, I am not a prophet and I don't have all the answers, but i can tell you that the 1 thing i have learned is that our sole purpose here on earth is...

to be happy!

Well how do i find happiness is the next question. It is within you. It always has been, your journey, your path is to find that. You will never find it outside of yourself. People that strive for happiness in things find temporary fixes to a want, much like a drug addict and their next score. You won't find it in the new house, the new car, the latest clothes, or a huge yacht. Yes those things are nice, but they are temporal...and of this world. They bring temporary happiness until the next big fix.

Here is one that may piss some people off, but trying to find the love of your life, won't bring you happiness. You have to be truly happy and madly in love with yourself before you find or attract that other person in your life. If you don't end up in a relationship, or married or with kids, or with the person you are "destined" to be with, if you believe that, its okay! Life will go on and the love you have from yourself and your friends and family will carry you through. Move away from this idea that you will go through your "golden years" alone. If you think that way, you have created your future. Best quote I have heard is "to thyne own self, be true"

I find joy in the littlest of things, my three cute adorable, schizophrenic, moody, loving, spastic but heartwarming cats. I wake up and know that i make a difference in their life every day by giving them a good home, as much love as they could possibly get and a roof over their head. I try to be the best friend to all my friends (although, i am not perfect). I enjoy the breeze on my face on a warm day, i love hearing the birds chirp, and enjoy the aromatic coffee i drink every morning.

Find the joy, find the love and be happy. It doesn't come from out there, it comes from within you

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 …
