Gibraltar 2.28.18

Yesterday we decided, despite the rain, to visit Gibraltar, which is actually 6 sqkm of land in the south of Spain belonging to the UK. The rain didn’t ruin the mood too much, it created some interesting lighting for some beautiful unfiltered photos and gave me a slight cold. The cold’s the catcher, I’m paying…

Phones.

You know the expression “you don’t know what you have until it’s missing?” – yeah, it’s pretty accurate. For the past week my phone has not been working, as in won’t even turn on. I also lacked a replacement for said phone. I notice myself constantly reaching for it – when I have nothing to reach for. I am now much more aware of how glued to my phone I used to be. Constantly checking my push notifications or seeing if someone was trying to reach me. I’ve gotten over not having a phone, mostly. I still want one. But…

Clear Mind

I go into every year with a fresh mindset. Every year gives me new experiences and opportunity for growth (even if I don’t capitalize off of it). 2018 is no different – fresh mindset, fresh “start”. My goal this year is to keep in mind what is important. To be mindful in my actions.  

The Hometown Effect

I’ve been back in town for about four days now and it’s become glaringly obvious how easy it is to fall back into the same roles you played before. We do the same things, interact with the same people, behave the same. I like to believe that in the past 7 months I’ve grown a…

Meditation as a Form of Coping 

Recently I have been reading Into the Magic Shop by James R Doty, and he brings up the interesting idea of using meditation in order to keep your body calm in stressful situations – which in return would assist in keeping you healthier (seeing as the chemicals released in your brain during streasful situations are not…

Setting Things into Perspective

Often times we get too cought up with ourselves. We’re too lazy, too sad, too tired to live, to exist. Complaining doesn’t help. Keeping it bottled up doesn’t help. So what else can you do? You stop. Take a moment. And breathe. You’re alive. The mere fact that you exist is amazing. So you stop again. Stop stressing, stop worrying. There’s no need to. Concentrate on yourself more. Do that thing you wanted to do. Start that youtube channel. Make those pancakes. Take your dog the dog park and the docks. Live life and do what you enjoy. Be happy.…
