We Need a Slow Revolution

Remember when you asked a person “how’s it going?” and the standard response would be “it’s going alright” or “fine” or “good good”, but more often than not today the response is “BUSY!” and then you sympathize and say “I know, so busy”. Being busy has become a cultural norm. I long for the days […]

The Greatest Currency is TIME

In my quest for a less cluttered life and embracing minimalism; the reason for the pursuance of less is to free up the precious commodity which none of us seem to have enough of is “time”. The more busy I become with work, navigating traffic during rush hour, checking into social media outlets, I have […]

I Know the Secret to Happiness…

I know the secret to happiness and it is easy; happiness is something every human being can attain.  I can sum it up in one simple word “gratitude”.  Folk like Oprah have been preaching about an attitude of gratitude for well over a decade, but it is 100% the truth and logical when you think […]

Day 12 – Summer 2018 Mins Game 

Oh my, the junk we accrue over time.  At this point I feel like I could be purging for years to come.  Every day, I go through a cupboard or a drawer and find a few more items taking up valuable space, preventing me from finding what I actually do use and need.  Today’s purge […]

Day 11 – Summer 2018 Mins Game

Day 9 – Summer 2018 Mins Game

Today’s purge has a bit of a theme.   Between 2004 & 2006 I was studying Judaism after a trip to Israel. Typical to my Myers Briggs personality type being INFP (Introverted Intuitive Feeling Perceptive) I am very spiritual and I was searching for God for a long time.  Part of my quest to find […]
