Day 194 of 365 - Once Upon A Time In My Life...

When I used to hear “experts” say that if there is something about someone you just simply can’t stand, it’s because it’s reflection of how you perceive yourself, I used to wave off such thinking and dismiss it as bunk. I simply didn’t understand this line of thinking. Read more…

Wow…how time flies.

A year ago, I wrote a blog titled, “One Year of Therapy – My Journey of Healing, Growth and Transformation,” where I talked about the changes I witnessed after my one year anniversary of starting therapy. Well, Wednesday, June 8th, I marked the completion of my second, or sophomore year of therapy. Read more…

Okay, I’ve definitely been sucking at writing on here regularly as of recent. Oh well, hopefully that changes.

In the past month, I’ve been confronted with the cycles of life and death, and it has kind of thrown me off and really made me look at life differently. I won’t get into what happened yet, but I’ll say that I’ve been forced to take a look at myself and ask myself how I want to live the rest of my life and the type of person I would like to spend it with.

Failure

Several nights ago (well at the time I first wrote this, it was several nights, but now it’s about a month), as I was sitting on a bench on the subway platform, reflecting on my ongoing quest to overcome the blocks that have prevented me from really truly hustling and doing whatever it takes (that is legal) to create the life I want, this strong feeling of pride came over me.

Disconnected – by Timmy Brister

Hey, it’s been awhile.

I’ll be honest and tell you that it’s more than me not having the motivation to write on here, it’s that I haven’t really had the desire. As I’ve been experiencing a lot of emotional release, shifts of perception, and self discovery, I’ve found that a lot of the motivations I’ve had that kept me on a routine have been shifting, which in turn has taken away my desire to do some of the things I was used to doing.

Yeah, so I took a couple of weeks off of writing this thing. After you share of your self the way I’ve been doing, on an energetic level you feel kind of open and “sore” (or at least that’s what it’s been like for me) and I didn’t have the “energy” to write anything, so I left this alone for a bit.

It was the early 90s, the summer after my Freshman year in college, the month of August to be exact, and two friends of mine and I were walking around in the Village to talk to girls.

We were walking east towards Broadway, coming from Washington Square Park, and walking towards us were these two femme girls holding hands. Read more…

If you aren’t friends with me on Facebook, this is your lucky day, because you get to hear about an incident I had on the subway a few weeks ago.

If you are friends with me on Facebook, and have already heard the story, guess what? This is your lucky day too, because you get to hear an encore. (Oh stop, you know my stories make your day)… Read more…
