Who Are You?

Have you ever looked in the mirror and asked that question? Who is that person staring back at you, judging you, questioning every single one of your moves? Are they in control, and if they are not, who is? Sometimes those questions may be too existential to some people, who would just rather ignore them and continue roaming through life aimlessly, hoping to find good fortune and happiness in only-god-knows what. If you have followed my articles and my posts on social media you already ...

Commit yourself to constant change and improvement, make yourself accountable for your actions, no matter what time of the year  it is. You are the same person today that you will be tomorrow... just because the cosmos has moved forward doesn't mean you will. It is up to you to keep up with the univer...

We Need Courage

Those of us with mental illness go through periods of time where we have very little strength. It is almost impossible to do the menial every day things just to stay afloat, like showering or brushing our teeth. Sometimes just breathing is hard enough. This is the reason that we need a lot of courage; we need to just survive those days of little strength and make it to the other side alive. If we can do that consistently, the battle is ours.

Excuses are dangerous. Start becoming accountable and your life will dramatically change.

As an addict I used to make hundreds of excuses every single day. Everything was an excuse, every horrible thing I did had a reason for existing. I was never accountable for my actions even though I knew I had to be. But when you feed the monster the monster takes over and you lose control, of your life and of your decision making. If this is happening to you, you must begin by letting go of excuses, and with an extreme amount of effort, you shall make it through to the other side. Get rid ...

Protect Your Self Worth

There are so many times that we put ourselves down based on what others say or think of us. We become eternal slaves of the opinions of others, and when we look in the mirror every morning we don't see the person we are, we see the painted lines of the brush strokes of others, who carelessly attempt to put us together without really knowing us. We need to stop this type of behavior because it is counterproductive and can actually cause us real damage. When we look in the mirror we have to ...

Escaping The Dark Side Through Purpose – This Will Change Your Life

Sometimes when I look at the reading on the screen of a heart monitor on an EKG machine, I am reminded of the ups and downs that life itself hits us constantly with. Throughout our short existence we are confronted with difficult situations that sometimes seem to appear out of nowhere. In contrast, other times we are surprised by things and events that we would never imagine could actually happen. For example, this past Wednesday a 53-year-old woman won a 758.7 million Power Ball Lottery jackpot, the second biggest in lottery history. I am also sure (although I don’t have specific details) that around the general time that this woman celebrated her incredible win (probably still in shock), there was more than one person around the world receiving very difficult news, not to mention those people that found themselves in situations that completely altered their lives, and, in the worst cases, even ended them. ...
