Memory loss



Your probably thinking, "Where is he going with this?"  Memory loss can be debilitating, crippling and traumatizing ordeal for everyone that goes through it.  I am going to give you a different spin on this condition and how to apply it to your own lives.

Memory loss can be a condition as simple as not remembering a movie that you saw last week, or losing your keys.  It can be forgetting someones name that you just met a few days ago.  Sometimes it happens when we don't input it into our memory properly.  Without getting to complex, Im going to try and make this as simple as possible.  We travel through this life taking all the experiences we have with us, almost like luggage or a backpack.  When we have a positive experience or negative experience, we label that experience and put it in a bag of sorts.  We classify it and store it away for future use.

I have a new idea and that is to treat each day as if you have a form of memory loss.  What I mean by this is that if we want to have a truly rewarding experience in this life, we have to forget all the bad stuff or the stuff that we labeled as bad before we put it in our back pack.  Lose the backpack.  We need to embrace each day as if yesterday never happened.  You can take the good stuff from the day before and keep it with you, however we should be waking to a day that has never before occurred to us.  We should treat our friendships as if we have never seen them before, like they are a new and fresh acquaintance in our life.  I used to call this Alzheimers syndrome, but I don't want to put that negative connotation out there.

Forget all the bad experiences you have had and embrace each moment as new.  Wake up with a new found respect for the day and that today may be your last day.  Clutch each friendship as if you have never met and give them love and open arms.  Wake up next to the one you love and cherish that moment as if it is the first time you have ever seen the beauty of their sleeping face and the magic of their breathing.  Enjoy your coffee, tea or breakfast as if you have never had such a magical experience.  This is truly living in the power of now.  Don't look forward to anything, but be in awe of this moment, wherever you are and most importantly constantly give thanks.

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
