Always Thankful

You may not realize it, but there are so many things in your life to be thankful for at this moment. Wherever you are, whatever you are going through, make sure to focus on the things that matter and to give thanks for them.

Everyone has problems, challenges, struggles, and difficulties in life, yet its what you focus on that will free you from the pain of hurt and live in limitless joy.

Stop bitching about what you don't have and focus on the abundance that is already around you. Instead of being hateful to those that hurt you, abused you, beat you, wronged you or even raped you, focus on the people that lifted you up and brushed you off and told you they loved you. They have to be there, else you wouldn't be standing where you are standing today.

If you find yourself in a worrysome situation or in fear over the impending future, stop thinking for a minute and just breath. Focus rather on the hardships you have endured and put yourself in a happy place to know that you made it through the despair. Know with every fiber of your being that you can always remain standing through whatever life throws your way.

If you have dreams that have not been filled, you need to give thanks for them. Imagine if you had accomplished everything you set out to do, that would be the most boring life possible...especially if you achieved it early on in life. Be present in the now and give thanks and know that there are other goals that you are going to tackle as you move forward. There is no right or wrong or best or worst when accomplishing something, just a piece of mind that you did it.

Live in love and allow yourself to live in that gratitude that you are wonderful, beautiful, amazing and unique. Approach everything with an open heart, an abundant heart, a loving heart and a thankful heart. You will find yourself less stressed about the future and living in love and light which is where we all strive to be. Know that I and many others love you, but more than that, that you love yourself, for that is what matters.

Until next time

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 …
