Do it uncomfortable...

Lately I have become obsessed with mental blocks. Specifically, my own.  

My entire life I've had passionate aspirations... I want to be a writer, a photographer, an artist, a "creative". And I'm very curious about my resistance. That thing I can't quite reach.

I try. I stop. I start again. I stop. I try once more.

Reboot

Well, 2020 knocked me out cold. Not sick, I just fell silent. My processing system went down.

I of course was not alone, literally everyone in the world was effected in one way or another. For me it killed my writing, my creativity. I could barely think straight. And the worst part being that I had just announced publicly (with zealous . . .

Consistency

Reversing a Bad Habit

It has been over a year since I last wrote, and it's driving me nuts that I can't create a habit to write.

Apparently I have no problem not writing on a consistent basis, clearly I have that habit down pat. But how to reverse this?

I guess the question is, what's stopping me?

"Living The Dream"

Finding happy in the ordinary of every day...

Life.

Boy does it take work to live it, breathe it, and not be at war with it!

It's taken me much work to discover that everything I need, want, or could ever hope for is right under my nose.

YEARS!

Spent looking for that magical something that will make me happy.

Wishing for a tomorrow that never . . .

Hear Me

Releasing my inner voice

Silvrback blog image
From a very young age I learned the difference between being seen, verses being heard. I discovered that unless I open my mouth to say something people will assume what I am thinking just by looking at me.

This realization hit me one day when I was perhaps 6 or 7 years of age. I was at a family function desperately wanting to . . .
