The first rule is to keep an untroubled spirit,
The second is to look things in the face and know them for what they are.

Emotions blur our eyes and cloud our judgments
We often project our own biases
And only see what we want to see
Keeping ourselves just distracted enough
So we never have to look ourself in the mirror or face up to reality.

But reality doesn’t care about how you feel
It just is.

And seeing things for what they are
As they are

Being able to see right through the bullshit
Is a super power in itself.
Because without that grasp on reality
You’re forever stuck in a deluded fantasy

And that might be OK, 
until one day it’s not.
Because reality doesn’t go away.

And just because you can’t or refuse to see it
It doesn’t mean it’s not there.

  • Taking your second chance
    It’s pointless, because history will always be confined to history. Instead it may be time to look yourself in the mirror, at the risk of not liking what you see. Because getting it right, means being honest with yourself. It comes with the brutality of having to confront your own demons, And being able and willing to take the hits. So take your second chance. Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.

  • Communication is not a one way street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving it all behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
  • Ahead of the game
    It’s easy to play life on the back foot Always playing defence. Always waiting, always passive, always reactive.
