So the presents are finally finished being wrapped. Everything is sitting under the tree looking lovely. Had a good chat with mom and had a couple drinks. Man it feels good to be able to play my piano again. The keys could almost cry over this melody. Feels good to have something again. Looking at the Xmas tree almost makes my spirit choke up. Everything just suddenly hit me. All the hard work might not have translated into how i preferred things look, but I’d be a fool to complain. Went homeless for a month. Thousands of dollars spent. In between packing, moving, working endless hours thanks to holiday season and managing to do it all on no sleep. I’m surprised I’ve been able to stay sane. Times like this wish I could hug something or someone. Just a little relaxation from adulting. This is a plan that was years in the making. We’ve come a long way but the mission has finally been accomplished. As i reflect on my life while looking at this beautiful tree, I can only say thank you. It was all worth it. The most worthy Xmas gift a family can ever receive, a little peace of mind. Happy holidays to all. And to all a good night…

Gaining knowledge doesn’t make you a scholar. Learning is one step of many on the path. Knowing how to properly teach others that which you have learned is the true test of any perceived wisdom. It matters not so much what you “know”; if you can’t teach it to others, it’s the same as knowing nothing.


Fear #MyDailyStruggle

One of the things I think about is how I affect people who I interact with on a daily basis. One of my greater fears is that I will inadvertently damage someone else’s life with advice that I give. Typically when people ask my opinion on something I treat my answer as if I’m the one who has to live with whatever advice I’m about to give. The problem is that I maneuver throughout the world entirely different from how most people do. I tend to make the “difficult” decisions easy, especially if it’s something that has to be done. Not every person is willing to do that. Thus I always wonder whether I should even give people the type of advice I do. It’s always a matter of “what they need to hear” vs “what they want to hear”. Most of the time it ends up being the former. Here’s to always hoping it works out for the best…


“insert Coin” (Lessons Of My Youth pt.1)

I grew up playing video games that taught me to avoid the pitfalls and traps (every setback can potentially be costly). To always travel around to discover new places (never know what you may find). Grind constantly to make myself stronger (hard work pays off).  Collect items and gear that will help me improve (always important to make the most out of your assets).  Brainstorm to solve puzzles (the brain is the most important muscle in the body). And above all, recognize that no matter how much you try, you can never really manage to save her (you can’t keep what doesn’t want to stay).. Only thing left to do is to conquer the final boss (mastering your inner self is key to any progress). Whoever said playing video games was a waste of time clearly didn’t pay enough attention… #LifeWithNoLabels
