  • Quote: Seneca – On Anxiety

    “There are more things, Lucilius, likely to frighten us than there are to crush us; we suffer more often in imagination than in reality.” ― Seneca, Letters from a Stoic

  • How I’m Using ToDo Lists

    I’ve never been good at keeping things in my head. I’ve also never been good at following up on things I write down on a to-do list. It’s quite the hassle if I’m being honest. Towards the end of 2021, I started using my iPhone’s to-do list app and just dumped everything I do, or […]

  • Clarity From Knowledge and Experience

    I’ve struggled with my eating habits all my life. I like junk food and fast food and cookies and cakes etc. What I’ve come to realize is there’s nothing wrong with any of those foods in moderation but the way I was eating them was an everyday, sometimes every meal occurrence. That is not good. […]

  • Writing For No One, Writing For Me

    It’s not at all surprising but today I enabled site stats using JetPack(( and saw that my site has had zero visitors. As I mentioned I’m not at all surprised by this since I’ve told no one about it. In the past, I’ve wanted to have a successful blog with a community and, to be […]

  • Social Media Break: Day 30

    I did it. I thought this break would give me a bit of clarity on how I wanted to use social media going forward. It didn’t. Over the last 30 days, I was very aware of every time I picked up my phone to open Facebook or Twitter multiple times a day up to and […]

  • Routine Timing vs Routine Doing

Of all the things I’ve tried in the past, exercise is the most effective treatment I’ve found. I’m not anti-medication, but I never really found a […]

  • Mantras Are Effective?

    For me, they certainly have been. One, in particular, has been extremely helpful to me. We don’t do that anymore When I feel myself slipping into a bad habit or a bad way of thinking I simply say “We don’t do that anymore” and it breaks those thoughts. Self talk works and I’m not sure […]

  • Effortless Effort While Running

    Sounds weird, right? I have no idea when or where I first heard this phrase but I’ve been thinking about it a lot recently. Over the last few weeks my runs have felt like an effortless effort. Like, I have to push myself to get out the door and I have to sometimes struggle through […]

  • Finding My Place In The World

    I’ve struggled with the direction of my entire life. I spent some time in the military and decided to do the full 20 and retire. Then I allowed others’ opinions to become my own and got out after eight years. I’ve had no issues staying at jobs for years at a time, but a lot […]
