About Burning Out And Rising Up

2017-10-11T15:24:03+00:00

I’ve been terribly lost these past months. Heaps of energy loss, mixed with a pinch of existential depression, and a whole lot of questions on what the hell is going on in the world. And, what my role in all this is. After all, I’m just a tiny nobody behind a laptop (I’m not, I [...]

What Is The Meaning Of Life If It Isn’t 42?

2017-10-11T15:21:04+00:00

Do you ever get hit by a lightning bolt of clarity and ask yourself: What is the meaning of life anyway? Yeah, I got a ton of that in the past weeks… I got struck down by a serious cold and it turned me hyper-philosophical and introspective. And it made me wonder (in the most Carrie Bradshaw of [...]

What Your World Could Look Like If Connecting With People Was Easy

2017-10-11T15:28:45+00:00

Connecting with people...what does that even mean? For the past weeks, I've felt oddly demotivated and unenergized; like my battery just didn't want to recharge. Which is fine...but not really the go-getting entrepreneurial mindset necessary to make this World Peace thing happen...

“But…it’s probably just me being difficult…as usual.” She casually said after an hour-long tearful rant about all the horrors she was enduring with her more than narcissistic and egotistical boss. “But you know…it’s okay; I’m used to it now. It is what it is.” he said after the umptieth gut-wrenching description of the latest developments [...]

How To Peace Out, Deal With Stress, And Stop Scaring Little Children

2017-10-11T15:26:34+00:00

“Excuuuse me, but this is definitely MY side of the street.” I bitchily scowled at the girl who had cut her corner so sharp that I had to drastically hit the brakes on my bike and come to a full standstill. All this went down right at the bottom of a bridge over one of the Amsterdam canals. [...]

Don’t you think that maybe…you want too much?

2017-10-11T15:29:05+00:00

“Don’t you think that maybe...you want too much?” he asked, completely and utterly unaware of the violent rage he would only barely escape from in the next minute. Because with all my peace-loving intentions, it took just about everything I had to NOT beat him to death with my flip-flop right then and there. You [...]

2017-10-11T15:26:36+00:00

I've been ghosted the other day. Stood up, ignored, pariah’d, the thing Amish folk do to people who break their church vows. And I've had a hard time dealing with it... Let's start by saying this is not the first time I've been a ghostee. It's happened before, and I'm sure it will happen again. [...]

2017-10-11T15:26:36+00:00

Ah yes, the compliment... A human paradox if there ever was one: we spend our entire lives chasing personal recognition and acknowledgement but are seemingly unable to actually receive it...such a tragedy. I mean honestly, how many times has a scenario that looked a little like the following happened in your life? Friend: "Wow, you look [...]

About Moving Mountains, 1 Babystep At A Time

2017-10-11T15:30:16+00:00

It was day 9 of my 2 week trek around the Annapurna mountain range in Nepal and I was standing at the foot of yet another steep climb. The last and biggest of that day. My hiking mates had all preceded me and were climbing the snowy and barely there path with the elegance and [...]
