What screws us up most in life

What screws us up most in life

“… is the picture in our heads of how it is supposed to be.”

This is so true. How often do you catch yourself doing exactly this!!?! Thinking about the things you wish you had done, the things you wish you owned, the things you feel you’ve missed out on and the way you wish your life was.

It’s so easy to focus on the ‘have not’s’. The perceived failings, the difference between where you are and where you wish you were. Many people spend their lives this way, imposing an abstract sense of failure upon themselves, that does nothing but stir up feelings of inadequacy and anxiety. What if we just stopped doing that to ourselves? Imagine how much better the quality of life would be if we learnt to focus on what was in front of us, rather than what we ‘wish’ was in front of us.

We all need to come back to the moment, to ‘now’ and let go of the reality we imagine, the past we miss, or the gaps we perceive between our ‘wants’ and ‘have’s.  Don’t wish your life away in this type of pattern… Focus on what you feel, what you sense, what you love right now, and spread your wings and soar.

Focus on how good ‘right now’ feels. Living in this exact moment, ‘now’ is profoundly liberating. Everything becomes possible again – pain recedes into another dimension, and opportunity presents. Try it, I promise you it will deliver you the deepest sense of well-being, the greatest relief from stress and the deepest sense of spiritual connection and gratitude for who you are and what you have been given.

Melt Down

Melt Down

As everyone who has them knows… Young children, from the get-go, are a leading cause of insanity in otherwise ‘stable’ (term used loosely) people. For those who identify; I give you Michael McIntyre.

Not a cure, not a how-to, and nothing preachy. The opposite of all the remedies, schools of discipline and every other piece of advice you’ve ever received. This is empathy and understanding and a reminder that it’s not just you …. so please watch, its hilarious. And, if you’ve seen it already, watch it again.

I watch this religiously on ‘bad’ days (and hang out with my friend alcohol). Any time child-induced heart palpitations rumble, or my brain starts melting – I’ve got it dialled.
This clip is in my phone, my playlists, the spoilt children’s iPad’s, and everywhere else I can save it to.

There’s something so comforting in knowing you’re not alone… I think?

Thanks (so many thanks) to Michael McIntyre

Great big sloppy kisses and a bit of Darwinism

Great big sloppy kisses and a bit of Darwinism

Great big sloppy kisses and a bit of Darwinism

“There is no fundamental difference between man and animals in their ability to feel pleasure and pain, happiness, and misery.”
– Charles Darwin

True beauty tends to be found in the simplest and most unaffected moments of our lives. There are many honourable and noteworthy characteristics to be observed within humankind. Specifically the desire (of most) to bond with and take care of those around us.

It is in the nature of our caring that the most genuine side of our selves is revealed. These are amongst the time’s when our spirit, ‘our inner self’, steps forth, and leads us. We, the earth-bound spirit learn as we are ‘guided’ through such experiences. This is how we come to know real compassion, love and empathy.

Caring for and seeking to love those who are around us is one of the most noteworthy and poignant characteristics of human beings and similarly of animal beings.

Look at this beautiful image. Two connecting in this captured moment as one. Hearts and souls recharged in a perfect and special moment of connection and feeling for one another.

Isn’t this what life is about? Don’t even try and tell me this isn’t love …. look at that face!! Love is love, whether its your mother, best friend, husband, dog , child or rabbit … Nothing is more special or affirming … and I have to say, that from what I can see, the animals are the ones who love the most easily and deeply. We have a lot to learn from these special friends.

Be kind to animals – they deserve every ounce of your compassion and kindness.

What kind of Asian are You?

What kind of Asian are You?

Alex Dang - Racism, what it does to people, how it makes them feel

for more of Alex Dang, you know we all need more of him, check out http://wordsoftakumi.tumblr.com/

Racism – The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability

So he said to me: “What kind of Asian are you?” And I said back

That’s a loaded question.

What kind of Asian do you EXPECT me to be?

Because any way you slice that egg roll,

I’m still pretty much whatever you want to see.

I’ve played many a Far East stereotype:

Awkward math genius,

Cold and calculated Kung-Fu expert,

Assistant to “Dr. Jones, you crazy!”

You want me to drive? How so?

I can give you:

Tokyo Drift, Jeremy Lin,

Mario Kart, Tiger Woods,

and Blinker left on for about half a mile

I am the foremost expert on all things Asian.

The Meiji era and the ban of the Samurai?

Done.

Confucianism versus Daoism? I’ll give it to you with no slant!

What’s the difference between Asian stereotype 1 and 2?

WELL LET ME TELL YOU.

Let me tell you anything YOU want to know about my culture

Let me tell you in a Moolan-esque soliloquy

Of me staring in the mirror asking

Who IS that girl staring that I see?

Let me tell you about Jackie Chan

And Bruce Lee and how they are related

BY BLOOD to me

Let me tell you about being so marginalized

It’s to the point of “I really CAN’T believe that’s Asian!”

Let me tell you about derogatory terms

And origins of words such as chink and gook

Let me tell you about the struggle

Of Asian parents not knowing the language

So we ate pet food because it was cheaper

Let me tell you about the job of interpreter

When you’re still playing with LEGO blocks but

You’re English is already that much better than your guardians

Let me tell you about honor and dignity

Let me tell you about a society that projects us as nothing but the secondary role

And never the leading man.

Let me tell you all the things you don’t want to know.

Like how chink comes from the clanking of metal to railroads,

As the slaves built train tracks for, this country to be connected.

Like how the zipperhead down the street,

Is called that because of the way our heads split open when struck with assault weapons

Or how the Jeeps ran over and left marks across corpses

And someone clever thought that we were only good to unzip.

Like how every time you lump an Asian person into one culture

It is systematically making us assimilate

Into an America we thought was better than our war-torn home

And every time you confuse me with some other nationality

That I might share similar features to, it is stripping away my individuality

And I still feel the shame of being Asian

The heat and pious dedication of June 11th 1963

The envy of blonde hair and blue eyes.

And I still remember thinking where all the boys that looked like me on TV?

Were the broken words of my mother and father stage diving off my tongue?

The anger I felt when those kids thought I’d get them sick

And I still feel the ash of the incense

Burn my hands when I prayed for my family

And I still remember thinking my skin was what I was worth

And I still feel the ironwork of my bones grow stronger

With every train of thought that passes by

And I still feel pride

And I still feel heritage

And I still feel Chinese

And I still feel Vietnamese

And I still feel American

And I still feel
