The 2K11 24/7 CCLXXXVIII: A Mention of Reinvention

Do you ever wake up feeling like you’re living someone else’s life? Like you’re just going through the motions day by day and you’re not really connecting with everything going on around you? That’s definitely me some mornings — the ones where I wake up a little unsure […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCLXXXVII: A Thankless People

Some people are just plain rude. But collectively? It’s even worse! Gone are the days where holding doors, offering seats and saying please and thank you come naturally to people. Instead, we’re self-absorbed, spiteful and just constantly downtrodden about the state of the world around us. This past Thanksgiving our pastor gave a […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCLXXXVI: The Best Tool is the One You Have With You

The 80s was a time where anything was possible. Computers were still a huge unknown to the world — much less the Internet which was something only used in its infancy by an elite few — imagination was still key. Phones were bigger, fashion was insane, and many of the problems that seem to […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCLXXXV: Now or Later

Someone once asked me which of the two were more important — living for the moment or striving for goals. The argument that she gave me was that it was a desire for a carefree existence, not concerning oneself with the lessons that may have been learned from the past nor planning for […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCLXXXIV: Success Part Three — What’s Stopping You?

Most of the stuff we do in life can be split into two categories — the things we have to do and the things we want to do. For some reason, though, we seem to think that they’re vastly different from one another. We seem to think that if we […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCLXXXII: Success Part One — Being Yourself

It’s easy to lose yourself in your travels. You are but one person in a world where only the strong survive. There’s power in numbers, and being a loner will only keep you on the fringes for as long as you live. Solitude will never let you climb […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCLXXXI: Stopping Problems Before They Start

Do you know why you’re stressed out? A lot of us would say it’s because we have too much on our plates. But how did all that stuff that you have to do get there in the first place? Did someone put it all there when we weren’t looking? Is it all […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCLXXVIII: Fighting the Problem, not the Symptoms

Sometimes when you’re stressed, you won’t really recognize that it’s there. There are times where it’ll be more obvious — you might eat less, feel down or lose sleep over things. You might react to things emotionally — get angrier, sadder or just plain crazier depending on what’s […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCLXXVII: Knowing a Little About a Lot is STILL a Lot to Know!

As we get older, I think it becomes easier to accept that we can’t be good at everything. In school, you often have your know-it-alls and the competitive need to know more than everyone else around you. Knowledge is power — this is true. But you can’t know everything.

The 2K11 24/7 CCLXXVI: Growing Up is Hard to Do

Sometimes the opportunities to reflect on yourself and the path you’ve chosen in life are given to you on a silver platter. We can spend all our time trying to figure out where we changed and why we are the people we are today, but sometimes the answer […]
