Being your best

Do you like to do the bare minimum just to get by or would you rather take the reigns and bring the horses back to the stable?
I would say, no matter what you do, make the choice to be your absolute best. Don't wait for the person next to you to raise their hand to trump you, take the initiative and be the best you can more than you expected. There are no limitations except the ones in your head.

In the game of life, there is no winning and no losing. This is a very limited philosophy. It states that there is a good person who did more than someone else and a bad person, who came so close, but didn't cut it. You have already won just by choosing to enter the race. Don't make excuses, just do. By being active in the process you will feel much more fulfilled than had you sat the race out. Avoiding a situation is really no way to be present, it is a cop out.

You can be all that you have ever dreamed just be getting into the flow of life. Even if you don't know your purpose yet, sitting on the sidelines will never give you the answer. You have to dive in, head first and make your impression. Even if you don't know what direction to swim, you will learn something along the way and the fact that you are swimming is power enough to fuel your passion. Remember: possibilities are only limited to your mind.

You may not realize it, but you have so much to give. The more you give, the more you get back. The less you give, the less the universe rewards you. We live in a "me" world and sometimes it is hard to lend a hand when you are running to the finish line. Keep your faith, slow down and enjoy your journey for it is uniquely yours. You will be surprised and how beautiful and valuable the journey will become.

Stop living in fear that you are going to lose something if you put yourself out there. No one worth being remembered was a hermit. Step outside your comfort zone and know that every day, every hour, every minute, you are gaining valuable experience in the journey of you.

Don't wait for that moment to come...seize the one right in front of you. No matter what I tell you, the truth is that you can never lose. The fact that you took the initiative to make something happen means you will gain insight into your life and become your own victor. Often times the mind will lie, but the truth is, you are the best you that can ever be. Live it , be it, and love it

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"

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 …

Movie Review: The Family Fang- 4.5 out of 5 stars

Narrator:  Imagine your dead. Feel yourself go numb. Start with your fingers, move to your hands, your wrists, right on up to your elbows. Everything is dead. If we can imagine our own death, but still manage to come back to life, then it proves we can survive, anything.

Baxter Fang: Don't be afraid. Own the moment. If you're in control then the chaos will happen around you and not to you.

This was one of the best and possibly overlooked movies of 2015 (which is why I am just now reviewing it in 2016) in my humbled opinion.  Jason Bateman is not only an incredible actor, but an extremely talented director.  I was never a fan of arrested development (probably because I never watched it).  However, after seeing Bad Words and now The Family Fang, I have a whole new respect for Jason Bateman

The story line:Annie and Baxter, the adult children of the controversial husband and wife conceptual performance art couple famous for their quirky macabre public performances, have never got ove…
