Among men, it seems, historically at any rate, that processes of co-ordination and disintegration follow each other with great regularity, and the index of the co-ordination is the measure of the disintegration which follows. There is no mob like a group of well-drilled soldiers when they have thrown off their discipline. And there is no... Continue Reading →

Overextending

I'm learning to stop overextending myself. This includes resting when I hit the limits of my physical ability, asking for help when I need it, saying no to conversations or relationships that are taking more than they are giving, saying no when a yes won't do anyone any good, and most importantly, taking a nap...

Living for others

In general, we spend way too much time living for ourselves and thereby overlooking the power of helping others out. It's true that we need to look out for ourselves and that we can't love anyone if we don't love us, but we shouldn't get stuck on loving ourselves and never move beyond that. It's...

I Was Here

From Beyonce's 'I Was Here': "I want to leave a footprint on the sands of time. Know there was something that ...
