#reverb10 Day 13: Action – beyond the ideas

December 13 – Action When it comes to aspirations, it’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen. What’s your next step? (Author: Scott Belsky) This prompt totally freaked me out when I first read it. It freaked me out because it seemed unbelievably overwhelming. There are so many things I both NEED and WANT to do. Like most people my interests are varied and vast. It seems like even if I decided to completely forgo sleep I couldn’t possibly do it all.

Reflections & Manisfestations – #reverb10

Reflecting on my first two months of self-employment

I’m taking a break from the intense work mode I’ve been in the past couple of days to post for an update of goings on in my life. It is a BEAUTIFUL day on the East Coast day with temperatures in the low 60′s. You know its warm because I just went outside in only two, very thin layers. Come on spring! I am always amazed however, by how little warm weather it takes for people to start springing out tank tops and shorts. It ain’t that warm yet people! At any rate I had to go outside for fresh […] Read more...
