Monday Motivation: support children’s rights.

As I talked about is a previous post, I started this website a few years ago and I had no actual goal for it. When I started this site I was living in China, so I began by documenting that: my experience of living abroad.


Living in the People’s Republic of China for over a year really did something to me. It unlocked a huge potentiality of new and wonderful possibilities…as well as a tidal wave of repressed childhood memories. Childhood Demons.


Coming back to the states was inevitable and in doing and I —inevitably— had to face myself. No longer could I go back to the utter chaos and drama that was my life before the PRC. I was determined to evolve and to grow.


That is how I ended up here.


I’ve been on my own. Completely. No family or friends to consistently see, hang-out with  or rely on. Or to keep me in a mold and shield me from seeing my true self.


For the last year and a few months. I’ve had the privilege of solitude; for days, not just hours. I’ve sat with my inner child, I’ve connected with my higher being, I’ve reached out to my future self.


I’ve let source travel through my fingers. I’ve let my heart guide me.


Where I’m going I do not yet fully know —I just know my inner compass guides me.


There is still much I have to learn. There is still much left to decide. Yet the evidence is clear, something is leading up to something here.


I find flow and passion in the things that I do, and the things I share. I love doing these things. I love writing. I love making videos. Yoga and meditation are my solid grounds. I enjoy and appreciate water and nature.


Yes, I’ve faced a lot of demons. Lot’s of can’ts, shouldn’ts, and I’m-not-good-enoughings. I am clearing them out which is what brings me to this unusual post.

I’ve always wanted to make t-shirts; to wear the words I live by on my clothing.

In the spirit of why the f🙊k not… i just went for it. Now I have my own “online store” !!

—what does that even mean? It means I have to start telling people to start buying🤷‍♀️ lol. Really I just want people to respect children and to wear cool clothes that they actually believe in.

So support children’s rights!

Purchase yourself (and your family and friends) one of these hoodies at my online store, here.

Many blessings

Monday Motivation: the journey’s not over

It’s been a loooooooooong journey & it’s not over yet.

Even when I reach the mountain-top it won’t me over, my job then will be to enjoy the view. To completely take it in. To relax after the climb. Then to pack up —with have a new sense of accomplishment— and climb down the mountain enjoying myself with each and every step.

It’s been a year and three months since I wrote “Why am I Doing This/what am I Doing?” After babbling on and on for quite a long article I concluded that I was doing this (this blog, deydreaming) to figure out what I’m doing.In the last year and three month, sooooooooo much has happened. A lot of things have been brought to surface. Yet, I feel like I barely scratched it…. okay, okay, I may have found something. I may have cracked a good one. Still. The fear is there. And she’s morphed into something bigger. A good friend of mine called it my Koopa. For those of us that grew up playing Mario Bros we beat many a Koopa. We even beat our share of King Koopa, or Bowsers.So. I’m heading straight on, continuing to move forward with my goal(s).As far as this website, many things have been updated. Though it still remains a free blog —meaning, WordPress may place some ads here and there sometimes (sorry for that). On my end, the daily reminder has been shortened.

Hear that? the silence. the rhythm of your heartbeat, the ebb and flow of your breath…

No brain noise here, no mind gremlins, not an ounce of monkey chatter, mitotes, head static, or incessant inner-talk…we are focused on ONE thing.

One thought.

One mantra.


THIS space.

Grow into it.

The daily cloud thoughts have also been updated, but the new versions will take some time to cycle through. A daily reminder to practice Sign Language has been added. As well as a link to 7daysPresent (a site that helps you reset, refresh and reclaim you Present) and a link to my online store.

I’ve always thought children should be respected so I finally made a hoodie to wear & show my support for “Children’s Rights”.

The process ended up being pretty simply, but this whole time my inner fears and demons were holding me back from even starting this particular project. My monkey chatter hasn’t completely settled but I’m choosing to feed the wolf that nourishes me, not the one that starves me. It’s not the easiest battle, but I guess that’s just one more reason for this website. I think most of the things that are posted here are good reminders. I for one can stand to listen to more good things on the daily. Speaking of good things, here’s a revealing article that is helping me bust some of these Koopa that I keep facing.

I cannot go into it with more detail but Timelining is helping me beat some of these Koopas. A handful of people have mentioned something of the sort throughout this whole year, in a way the Universe, God, was trying to get me to do this. Well, a version of this. And, I finally did it.

Now I have to share with everyone.

Timelining: visualizing experience

The article I mean. This 👇is as much as I’ll share on my Timelining exercise. For now.

May your journey be progressing harmoniously. And if it’s not may you be enjoying the wind and rain on your sails.

Many Blessings.

Monday Motivation: the Golden piece of paper

Perhaps, maybe, about ten or eleven years ago I was sitting in my psychiatrist’s office, just waiting to talk to my counselor, when I came across a golden piece of paper.

I was aware of the Golden Rule. I knew of it for quite some time… treat others how you would like to be treated. Yet, these Golden Rules for Being Human —as they were titled in the article— I’d never heard about.

The article printed on a golden yellow sheet of paper left the office with me that day, I took it home and framed it up.

For the next few years I had it displayed up in my room. Then I moved. Then I moved again. And again. Then again once more. Sometime between all the moves I lost the article. I’d long forgotten about it, I don’t know what made me remember but I am glad that I did —and super thankful for the internet.

I Googled it and was able to easily find a version of the “10 Golden Rules for Being Human”.

The full PDF is downloadable at the Colorado Education Initiative website, here.
This is the basic gist of it:

Rule One – You will receive a body.

Rule Two – You will be presented with lessons.

Rule Three – There are no mistakes, only lessons.

Rule Four – The lesson is repeated until learned.

Rule Five – Learning does not end.

Rule Six – “There” is no better [Present] than “here”.

Rule Seven – Others are only mirrors of you.

Rule Eight – What you make of your life is up to you.

Rule Nine –Your answers lie inside of you.

Rule Ten –You will forget all this at birth [and on the daily, so come back to it. Remember].


Enjoy this day. Make the best of it. Namaste.

Glass Ceiling

i like beautiful things. i like quality.

i get scared sometimes.
…a great idea crosses my path.

it. is. amazing.

it’s astonishing. it’s gunna save the world.
then i judge myself.
i deliberately kill my brain child.

but what is on the OTHER side?

what if i didn’t judge myself? what if I just let my idea live?

what if… what if I were to breath-in life to my idea then breath-out out judgement.

i don’t know everything, i really don’t know much at all…really.

i just feel gross and dirty with all the piles and upon piles of dead ideas inside of me…

i don’t wanna be the place where ideas go to die.
i’m just so scared…but, really, i have no idea what I’m even scared of?!
is it failure? no. no no. no… with each idea that i put into action. with each idea that i manifest a huge weight feels like it is being expunged out of me.

it. feels. good.

so. then it IS success!
why. why. why? won’t i let myself feel so good?



Good Wolf, Bad Wolf

Ultimately you have control over what you continue to think.

Once you become aware of your thoughts, what do you chose to feed?

All of those negative thoughts, the ones that make you feel yuck.
Those are the ones you’re trying to feed?

But why?

Once you become aware of your negative thoughts why do you continue to feed them.
Do you WANT them to get bigger?
Why are you giving them all the power?

You are what you continue to think.

Nobody is forcing you to continue to think that —you’re doing it all by yourself.

Once you perceive the negative though you have the power to change it.

Don’t spread those thoughts onto other people… don’t be like, here, hear this 💩, let me just smear it all over your being.

Sure, we can “vent” to friends; it’s super helpful to talk things out. BUT. When does venting become your go-to conversation?

When does “venting” become the only thing you talk about.

Are you even aware of what you’re talking about?

Do you know what you are perpetuating in your world…

You are what you speak.

The worst is when you speak ill of others… don’t you know that you have the power to form the perception of others?

If you talk 💩 about one person, and you “hate” that person and you spread all of your hate (in forms of words) upon everyone else… what do you think that will do? And, most importantly how does that affect you.

We are constantly creating our world around us.

Why then spread so much 💩.

Do you ever plan to clean it up?

You are what you speak. Clean your Self.
Your thoughts continuously form your being, and your world.

What are you continuously thinking?

Do you choose to feed it? If so, why?


what are you perceiving?

I judge myself all the time.
Therefore, I judge others all the time.
I judge based on my perception of the world. I use my prior knowledge knowing full well that EVERY situation is a new situation.

Sometimes it work out, sometimes it’s NOT the best way to perceive a new moment.

When I make connections with difficult situations with hurtful memories from the past I only end up hurting the moment (you know that silly little thing that connects us with existence…kinda like the only thing that truly matters)

Perception matters.

My perception of others rises —or limits— mine and others possibilities.

And my perception of others largely depends on myself; everyone is a mirror.

What kind of World am I nurturing? What kind of Self?

My Self is not my parents, my Self is not my family or friends, my Self is not the media or what culture tell us to do. My truest Self is that little four year old.

Remember your inner child.

When we are young we are the most true.

Then we slooooowwwly get molded to fit right into our parents molds, family molds, friend’s molds, media molds, culture…

We don’t have to lose our truest Self —we’d be much happier if we didn’t.

We’d be much happier if we just enjoyed the moment.
Embraced it like a good ol wave🌊

Can we and will we allow ourselves to, just, be?


What do you think?

Thinking for oneself… gross🤢

I’d rather do what my mom tells me, or my dad, or my sibling, or my friends, or my coworkers, or the media, or random people that I meet on the streets or on the internet…

THEY have all the answers!

How dare I even begin to believe that I have any of the answers for myself, for my own life?

Naw, that would be taking to much action and responsibility towards my life.

It’s easier to NOT think for oneself.
Because it’s too easy to be wrong and because ultimate I guess I just don’t trust myself enough —but I’ll blindly trust other people💗

Because other people KNOW BETTER than I do. They are outsiders so they can see more clearly how I should best live my life.

I value other people’s opinions way more. And I will completely and utterly do whatever they suggest that I do because of course they must have the best intentions for me in their opinions and suggestions!

Other people want me to succeed in life, they want to see me THRIVE, so I ask for THEIR advice and I do what THEY say and my life is better —just like THAT🙌

I KNOW it’s better because I’m doing what everyone else is doing.

— THAT my friend is the true way towards happiness 🙂

Always do what others are doing, and what others tell you to do.

Don’t waste your time learning to trust yourself and heart. That takes waaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyy
too much time and effort😭😣😑

I trust my mom, she knows best. Or my dad. Or my siblings. Or my friends. Or coworkers. 💩 even strangers in the internet have better answers!!!!


F all that work! Easy street alllllllllll the way 😉


Be real.

When you’re fake, you’re only fake with yourself.

When you lie, you only lie to yourself.

When you’re angry at someone, it’s only you that hurts.

Be genuine.

Be real.

Speak, and live, YOUR truth.

How do you know what your truth is?

Let me tell you, it’s NOT what your friends or family tell you. It’s not what some book, or counselor, or Oprah tells you —because they are not inside of you.

They are not you.

They’ve never been you.Tthey will never be you. So on YOU can find YOUR own truth.

When you live your truth you get to live in harmony with your SELF. In harmony with the World.

It just takes YOU.

Take the challenge.

It is time.
