I’m a storyteller.
I’m good at it.
When I was a kid, I was the one picked to tell the ghost story before bed because everyone knew I would scare the hell out of David Tayler. His mom would hear his cry make me pack up and go back home for being mean.
I smiled the whole way home.
Because I painted a picture for that kid that scared him to death.
Well now I get to paint a picture that is my life.
If I wanted to, in one day, I could put up videos, pictures, and conversations, that would convince you that I am the most miserable human being on the face of the earth.
And they would all be true.
But I’m not going to do that.
I’m going to try and paint the complete truth.
But it will ALWAYS be jaded.
“If you find yourself criticizing other people, you’re probably doing it out of Resistance. When we see others beginning to live their authentic selves, it drives us crazy if we have not lived out our own. Individuals who are realized in their own lives almost never criticize others. If they speak at all, it is to offer encouragement. Watch yourself. Of all the manifestations of Resistance, most only harm ourselves. Criticism and cruelty harm others as well.” – Stephen Pressfield
My charge to you is to stop sitting in front of that screen convincing yourself that you could do/be/live/write/smile/love better than whomever it is you are jealous of….
Just get off your @$$ and go do it.
