This LIfe...

Its the greatest tragedy ever written.  Its the ride of a lifetime its a series of highs and lows. Its an emotional wave higher than any tsunami, its bigger than any Katrina.  Its the highest of highs and the lowest of lows.  Its the mediocrity of it all.

We stumble we fall, we brush ourselves off and get up again.  We smile in the face of tragedy and join hands with our brothers to get strong again.  Never alone should this journey be fought, band of brothers and sisters unite.  We are stronger in numbers than we are on our own.

Its our solitary journey that matters and as we fill our heads with the nonsense that flows, its our discretion that leads us to the path of our own ultimate wisdom.  Don't let the silly masses throw ideas your way, seek your truth and spend time alone.  It is the greatest gift you will ever know.

We google stuff for lack of experience, but its the experience that google really wants.  It wants to be human and understand patterns but it never will, not now, not ever.  The human condition is one far greater than bits, bytes, ads or trending ideas.  Don't let your spark die, fight the hard fight. Rage into that dying light.  Find your light and make the dark caverns of this world brighter.  If you lift one up along the way, you make the road more bearable to be traveled.

We are not guaranteed the good life.  We wake up daily and remind ourselves why we are here.  Not your job, not the pursuit of money, not to find the meaning of life, but rather to embrace this wondrous place for all that is.  Its the sunsets, the sunrises, the fresh air on your face, the cool breeze on a hot summer day, its the laughter, the sand, the trees, the birds, nature, the traffic, the simplicity of what it could be.  Mark Manson said it the best, "And because we’re all spreading our attention so thin, many of us are losing the all-important life skill of focus."  

Your life is right in front of you.  Not the bigger house, not the bigger paycheck, Not the faster car, not the 1000 likes.  Focus on what you have right now.  Keep the greatness inside you and don't be swayed by my writings, nor anyone elses for that matter for your individuality is whats needed.  Your perspective is your own and it is brilliant, magnificent and complete.  Give thanks for your life at this moment and grace this life with your focus'd presence.  I ask you now, What do YOU want?

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 …
