Breathe


To see takes time-Georgia O'Keefe

So often we sit back, stuck in our emotions and the mire of the day that we forget, our soul purpose is to just be.  We sit around waiting for our lives to happen to us when in reality, it is happening every second.  You can no more control your life than you can control a sunrise.  You can make a plan for what you would like to have happen and work everything in accordance with that plan, but sometimes, the universe has other procedures for us in mind.

I am very guilty of this lately, I keep looking around for life to happen to me and in reality, it is happening.  Driving up to Oregon and seeing the amazing sunsets and the super tall trees and then the fog around the bend, you begin to realize that life is more than always about you. Social media can take us away from this view because we get so wrapped up in what everyone else is doing and if they "seem" to be having more fun than us, well then our life surely is boring, mundane and meaningless. When you get to this point (as I have), just detach for a bit.  Go for a run, take the kids for a walk.  Listen to the sounds around you rather than trying to mask them with sounds of music.  Get reconnected to this place and focus on the energy that has been here for years.  Focus on what matters and breathe.

Your life only needs to be amazing to you and no one else.  We are called individuals for a reason.  We see, feel, hear and perceive things differently than say your friends, girlfriends/boyfriends, husband/wife and/or children.  Things vibrate with us on different levels and hence the reason, you may find a song to be brilliant, and those around you sometimes don't find that same appreciation.  Be individual, be unique, be love.  Vibrate at your highest frequency, regardless of what those around you are doing. You are unique, regardless of your situation.

  • Sit in silence and call to you the part that resists being tamed (uniqueness) and affirm it

  • Breathe in the air that surrounds you and allow yourself to be cared for when you need to (embrace it)

  • Breathe freely and give thanks for who you are and that you don't have to be like everyone else

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

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 …
