Thoughts for the day

A river flows where it is free to

In our time on earth, we all struggle with what we should be bringing with us and what we should be letting go of.  As many of you know, it is very hard to throw things away, however, if we don't, it becomes a heavy weight, weighing us down.  Eventually the items become so heavy, like an immovable stone that we can't lift and it keeps us from moving on.

If you have ever noticed a river, you will notice how it flows and and doesn't hold anything.  The river flows through a river bed and shapes it. This is very true of life and love.  We shouldn't hold on to stuff that are deeply ingrained within us, because they have already shaped us.

When we have deep feelings within us, it is good to be like the river and let them flow through us. Often times we hold things like the love from someone past, an old card from a close family member, or a picture from a specific moment in time in our life because of the memory it gives us, but in truth, we should realize these memories are already in us and often keep us weighed down or unable to move.  The best way to free ourselves is to refresh every day and allow yourself to flow freely, like a river.  Don't hold on to things so tightly that you can't let new memories and experiences in.  

Find the balance of Spiritual, Emotional, Social, Intellectual and Physical pieces of your life.  Notice where you are devoting a large majority of your time each day and re balance.  Focus on what you are doing daily and give thanks. Never obsess. Find your healthy balance of alone and social time. Don't attach to outcomes, but rather, let them flow by like the river.

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 …
