This is me, right now.

M.I.A. Big time. 

Blogs take work for sure. They take dedication, something I once had but this blog pulled it right out from under my feet. I lost my balance but I think I just caught myself and am squeezing with my hands and pulling with my arms. 

I miss writing and am gearing up for letting a whole bunch of stuff out. Let me start with this. 

Introspection is the self-observation and reporting of conscious inner thoughtsdesires and sensations. It is a conscious mental and usually purposive process relying on thinking, reasoning, and examining one's own thoughts, feelings, and, in more spiritual cases, one's soul. 

I would like to think that 90% of people now a days are tricked into outward thought. Everything from television to movies to the internet plant seeds of "tangible realness" (what I'll call it). 

"What you can see is what is real and it is apart from you but you need it in hand to make you feel whole. So, you do what you need to do to get it!"

This is what I see everywhere, in everyone, even in myself at times, most of the time. It makes me sad and angry. We've been lied to and its too easy for us to eat those lies up. Its easy. Its like fast food. It will kill you. It will kill your family. It will kill your relationships. It will kill the only thing that is important, your soul and if it kills your soul then it kills my soul. What you do affects me and what I do affects you.  

Turn off your cell phones, your televisions, your I-Pods, smash your computer screen (well, just visualize that one). 

It's about time you connect with your inner self, with WHO you are and WHY you are. 

When everything is quiet. Listen to yourself. Listen to your mind. Listen to your heart. Realize what IS important and what ISN'T important. Then make changes. 

This life is passing quickly. Our lives are on a downward slope. Busyness ignites velocity. Slow yourself down. Take a walk alone or with a loved one. Talk. Talk about what is going on inside of you. You are worth it. We are all worth it.

You get it. Do you sometimes wish you didn't?

Miss you.

sometimes. but for the most part i feel really grateful for what i do get, it turns my gut and makes my eyes water to know that some people don't, some people i know and care about, sometimes its hard to think they will ever get it.
