Worry. Let me be clear:  I don’t mean “Don’t worry.”
Be Happy” because it doesn’t work that way.

What I do mean: worrying is a LOT harder than actually
committing to and doing a goal supporting action.

Going half-sies. You cannot be surprised by lackluster
results when you Continue reading

[read time: 3 minutes]

being “yourself” can sometimes be tricky when you feel like your SELF isn’t adequate, doesn’t have the authority, or hasn’t gotten things right in the past.  therefore, you might feel that SELF can’t possibly be trusted to run the show.

this is too bad because the SELF you’re usually working with is a lie.  now before you say, “hey!” and get offended, Continue reading

top 10 better reasons to “watch your mouth!”

29 Dec

[read time: 4 minutes]

yes, i did say “watch your mouth”…
but for exactly the opposite reason that your grandmother, grama, big mama, or granny told you.
she might also add: “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”  with all due respect, playing “nice” is exactly the reason why a lot of us have ended up co-creating a whole heap of hot garbage in our reality.  and quite frankly, isn’t it about time you create a life with deeper meaning that you’d rather to brag on than complain about?

truth can set you free… and can be a bit caustic at times or downright funky (not in a good way) at others but like a fart… Continue reading

the original title to this post was “like orgasm, joy cannot be faked”. tragic that so many do fake orgasm.  how can you truly get your groove on if you’re fakin’ the funk?  and no, the fake-it-til-you-make-it abso-friggin-lutely ain’t gonna cut it here.  it just doesn’t serve anyone involved.

so i edited.

true joy is…
being who you truly are, doing what you truly love, and not giving a damn about what anyone else has to say about it.

success with out joy is like sex…
without enjoyment.

material success, sought by so many, achieved by some, is a joke with a harsh punchline.  you might acquire a home full of trappings, but still never feel really satisfied or full of joy… kinda like Continue reading

"tell me who's watching?"[read time: 5 minutes]

this morning, i was fondly reminiscing about halloween night in Adams Morgan.  [cue cheesy soap opera flashback visual effects and music]

i was perched in the front window at Amsterdam Falafel, which is, quite possibly, the best place for people watching [Tryst: a close second] on the entire 18th St. NW strip. while enjoying a scrumptious bite of my falafel, a woman passes by in costume as the money you could be saving with Geico.

my LOL snapped me out of my daydream and back into the reality that i have got to finish this dang post on money that’s been hanging out in my drafts… looking at me, tapping it’s foot.  hmmmm… yeah, kinda like that stack of bills from the commercial!

one of the biggest challenges facing people in search of fiscal abundance is not actually the making of the money, but rather the battle in their heads about money.  Continue reading
