The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance-
In writing this blog-o-thing, I am doing what many other passionate and authentic people do: Taking the flow of my daily struggles and sharing it openly with you. The conversation we often have, like life; Is chaotic, awkward, tedious and associative.
I don’t know how to convey my feelings at times, words stumble from my fingertips and fall deftly onto the screen. Like life itself, this flow, this blog … YOU … Are intrinsically nourishing.
I can’t look YOU in the eye this morning, to find the courage to say “I am fully there” … This awkward awareness serves as my antidote to urgency and anger.
With your caring, continued support. I know without any shred of doubt, that my contribution here will be forever useful to the extent I can shift from being motivated by the desire to see results in my life: Likes, Follows, How long I can hold a pose, Being the best dad, A better lover, A better friend …
Dependence on results cannot but compromise my True Strength.
Sometimes what’s most painful for me is the conviction I have of just how simple it would be … To love and share enough to satisfy everyone’s basic needs; to create a flow of kindness.
The key, just so you know, to holding the pose is; don’t lock your knees. Locking the knees is the quickest way to pass out and fall on your face. 😉
Brilliant point mate and looking back on my years in the military, standing in formation – hours on end … Locking your knees is a really bad idea! Take care today and I hope you and your family enjoy this upcoming holiday weekend.
You too brother. I don’t know about you but turkey day is in my top five favorite days of the year.
Man, I’m already cutting corners here and there, fasting – getting ready for the feast. 🙂
Just so you know, in an attempt to validate you today, I clicked the like button many times. For some reason, it didn’t say “Liked” “Like a lot” “Liked a ton” “Liked a bajillion”. 🙂
Life is like that.
You are so very kind, I hope you and your hubby have a beautiful weekend together, take care and please be well! 🙂

I love this post! When I blog I take my daily or life struggles, joys and triumphs and openly share my experience, strength and hope! How nourishing for my soul! xx
Thank you so much for sharing, I am truly humbled, thank you!
I like the conversation…even when the words don’t come with ease…Maybe, even more so then… ~
Thank you 🙂
