Am I being too negative?


I was hanging out at the gym today trying to sweat away my crummy mood (having a sort of meh day) and then a thought occurred to me - Am I being too negative!?

There are certain values or I guess "missions" I have in life that I try to abide by:
  1. Always Smile!  a) because there is always a reason to and b) it makes you instantly happy
  2. Don't take things too personally or too seriously - it always great to have a sense of humor and to know that not everything (or more precisely nothing) is about you; and
  3. You have the most control of things when you realize - you cant control anything
I'm very proud of those statements and I really do try my best to live them everyday.

BUT this week (this day more specifically) I found myself saying:
  • ugh...I need a vacation I'm so bitter
  • GAWD i'm huge what the hell
  • I'm in such a bad mood god I'm tired
And then I thought - those are probably the most self fulfilling prophesies out there.  I am in a bad mood because I say it outloud and if I say it outloud it HAS to be true - NOT COOL!

I have no clue what got me here but it needs to end, I think typing out this post helps - also the fact that I'm taking a vacation from work soon will help (duh! :). BUT more importantly I think the self awareness helps.

SO my mission for this week is to abide by my missions *fingers crossed*

Peace out!

So this is a blog...


I don't really know what i'm doing here. So I guess I'll start from the beginning.

I've been wanting to blog for a while, but there is a small part of me who really really likes to stay private (you know, my business is my business - step off :) BUT I think there are so many benefits from writing down your thoughts that the best solution for the time being was to start something somewhat anonymous.

So what is this blog about? 

Umm me for the most part. I guess you would characterize this as a lifestyle blog I want to write about things that inspire, are honest and make you think.

Few topics come to mind:
  • Gossip
  • Friends
  • Relationships
  • Lessons learned
  • Leadership
  • Honesty
  • Travel
  • Quotes
  • Advice
  • Money
  • Health
  • Happiness
  • Fashion
Ok maybe that was a bit more then a few, but I'm a thinker, so it helps to write these sort of things down.

We'll see if I can keep this up -  I just started this on a whim on a boring Saturday morning but I look forward to writing

Peace out my homies
