It's your perspective

I saw this in an email this morning and thought I would share:

In all of time and space, there is no challenge, pothole, mountain, chasm, hurdle, or foe larger than you. Not even close. Although if all you use to size them up are your physical senses... good luck!

We don't live in a perfect world. Things go wrong, bills have to get paid, friends sometimes disappoint us, however, that doesn't change the fact that your life is amazing. If you look around you at any given time, you will see wonderful and amazing things. Savor the moment..

Where ever you are, being the you that you are right now at this moment, is enough to experience the most awesome moment of your life. Take a deep breath, thank your higher power for being healthy and well, give thanks for all that you have and you will find extraordinary value in the power of being. Normal mundane moments will become awe inspiring and breath taking seconds and will over power you senses.

I talk about it often on my blog but each day is a gift and truth be told, you can't predict the future, so don't try. Today is your gift; embrace it! Open yourself up to the wonderful and unlimited directions that the day can take and give thanks along the way. Life is not about how much money you have in the bank or how big your house is, its about embracing each moment and affecting as many people as you can (in a good way).

At any given moment, any given time, you can find value in whatever it is you are doing. You can take the negative and learned behaviors of the past and replace them with fresh and new expectations for your future. Your life plays out however you perceive it, so it makes more sense to stay open. Limitless possibilities await you and will take you where ever you want to go. If you block off your channels and live according to your past perceptions, the opportunities will never make themselves visible to you.

Nobody said that road of life was going to be straight and easy. Enjoy lifes little twists and turns and see where they take you. Everyday is an adventure and where that road leads you,is completely up to you. May you have a blessed day and know that if you are reading this…I care about you and love you! You matter and you are perfect!

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 …
