Thoughts from 30

My sister is always gonna play matchmaker – She’s my sister. Her plan is always to go find the most awesome, impossibly gorgeous woman she can find and try to get me to muster up the courage to ask her out. Never quite works out that way – i’m always gonna be a shy guy – but, I love her for trying. Life is better when you don’t have to worry about your health – 30 was the first time

Repositioning

There’s a measure of clarity that comes when you’re on the 5th night of working past 4am on a project. That clarity pertains primarily to the idea that I am doing work for the sake of saying I’m working instead of working towards a goal. And, upon further assessment, I can genuinely say that I am working on a project that I’d rather not be involved with and in doing so, it reminds me of the fact that I have

I’m considerate, and patient, and I’m loving, and a

Never Too Busy – Day 20

Day Twenty: Meditate. In the end, we all get exactly what we ask for… So, you better think hard on it and then be very specific in your asking. It’s a part of me and my life; the constant pinging of my blackberry all day. The reading and replying to the emails and text messages. I’ve come to love communication.

Therapy

Recently, I’ve engaged in a rather intense round of reflection and self-assessment. I had to be honest with my self as to what I really want out of my life in terms of joy. It’s my therapy. And, after having a good conversation yesterday about dating and relationships, it made me even more absolute in my current thinking. I’m NEVER gonna be THAT GUY. There’s nothing casual, in my mind, about dating. Relationships are too vital to the overall human
