Today I’m feeling scared, and I’m not sure what’s causing it. Is it because I’m blogging and putting my shit out there in the universe for all to see? Am I scared because I may be ridiculed, laughed at, not liked, perceived a failure? Or, am I scared because the energy in our world is freaking scary? All the presidents men, the media and the entertainers and the politicians are scary. People full of hate are scary! Will all of this insanity pull me down in its hole? Is that why I’m scared?
Am I’m scared about blogging? I guess I’m in some pretty good company then. Walt Disney (first animation company went bankrupt, was told he wasn’t creative enough), Albert Einstein (didn’t speak till four and read until seven – parents and teachers thought he was mentally handicapped), Vincent Van Gogh (he only sold one painting in his lifetime), Michael Jordan (cut from his high school basketball team) the list goes on. There is no success without failure. Decide what is important to you and take huge steps (leaps) everyday even though it doesn’t seem like it’s working. Success doesn’t happen without failures. It’s reality, and it takes practice to get good at.
Am I scared about the negative energy in the world? I know I’m not alone here. All I can do is take it moment by moment and day by day. I will try to limit my news time and place more time on my health and my family. I will try and hold all others opinions as just that, opinions. There is no power in thought and opinions, unless we give them power. Wayne Dyer used to always say, “Change the way you look at the world, and the world you look at changes”. Know you are not alone! For I am with you, and it might get scary!

During one’s final life review, the most shocking thing for baby souls is discovering how much love they were ALWAYS bathed in… that they failed to feel.
For young souls, it’s discovering how much love they were ALWAYS bathed in… that they failed to feel.
And for old souls, it’s discovering how much love they were ALWAYS bathed in… that they failed to feel.

Today, was an incredible day!!
560 male individuals gathered at THE COUNTR CLUB OF ROCHESTER to celebrate 100+ years of tradition, the annual pig roast. I was taken aback, and fulfilled by its power . It isn’t often that I see so many men together in one place for so long.
Over the many hours I was there, I had conversations regarding the political conditions around sexual harassment and assault and what It means to our world, amongst others.
It would it appear that we hope to have man’s perspective and opinion yet we want it to be one we agree with.

I’m having trouble with my keyboard today and traveling.
Here is an interview with Jim Carrey that resonates in a very profound way with me.

There is no scorekeeping.
Everyone lives each day for him or herself, no matter what they did.
No one owes anything to anyone, no matter what happened.
And from this, what I hope we most get, is that whatever we do next, we do it for the joy it brings you.

Can we talk? There is so much to talk about today, but, do we really want to talk about it? And, do we know how to talk about it? Most people I know, want to maintain the status quo, and not rock the proverbial apple cart. I will often find myself becoming more aggressive and start lobbing subjective thoughts or opinions into conversations. It’s a form of play for me, and I enjoy it. I like the intellectual engagement and sharing of ideas, which can be profoundly interesting and educational. It can also be destructive and hurtful, depending on the people and the environment. The key for me to a successful engagement is being open to listen to other viewpoints. In my experience, most of the discussions that have failed are ones where one or both parties were not able to actively engage in listening to each other. The need to be right, a form of self preservation.
Being right has become such a monumental thing in our world, that I’m not sure we’re going to overcome it, I see it everywhere.
Am I right???

Children provide us a view of un-restricted love and joy. Young children don’t learn sadness and fear early on, they are left alone to shine for years. They see everything for the first time, and are enthralled by the most simplest of things. They don’t get fed the daily news or our negative thoughts and opinions. It is not hard to see in them this beautiful light shining and we don’t want to extinguish it. This morning, I feel I need to move out in that light and wanted to share with you this abreviated post I wrote 20 days ago.
Today, was filled with lots of energy and joy. Is it because I got a lot done that I had been perseverating over? Or, because I didn’t want to be depressed and scared any more. Some days I just get up and deal with it because I don’t want to accept feeling depressed and scared all day. Other days, I like staying home and wallowing in it. Today, I decided to take the leap, to take the day and achieve some greatness, and boy did it feel that way. I was up before 6am and didn’t hit the pillow until 11pm, unheard of these past few months.
Today the blessings to me were energy and joy, and I’m just going to accept that and be grateful.
I’d like to make that my new normal! How you doing with that?
