coverThey say the only ones who are awake late at night are the lonely and the loved. The former find it hard to fall asleep when all they have to do is dream with open eyes about their beloved. It’s almost a compulsion.
But what about the lonely? All the artists, the dreamers; the ones who hold tight to a reality they don’t understand and want to explain? Continue reading

Imagination and obsession

imaginationmotivationSuch a wonderful gift the world has given us… the power of imagination. We can make anything up in our minds. Create anything at all. Re-arrange elements, add or subtract…

It is said we spend about 30% of the time daydreaming. It is said we fall asleep imagining perfect scenarios…some times we sleep with them inside our heads too.

Tonight I’m going to tell you how imagination can help you get everything you ever wanted. Continue reading

The mountain

“It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the pebble in your shoe.” – Muhammad Ali

Ever felt like a failure? Worthless? Lonely being redemption, broken beyond repair. A waste of time?

Ever felt that it just doesn’t matter?

Ever felt like you couldn’t do something because it was too difficult? Because you were just not good enough? Or smart enough? Or you didn’t have the resources you needed?

Ever felt hopeless, seemingly destined to spend your life daydreaming about what would never be and what was and could no longer be? Continue reading

Life is pain

“Life is pain, highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.” William Goldman

I’m not a big fan of “positive thinking.” Yes, it’s important that we love ourselves, that we try to see all that is good and worthy of gratitude in us and others. I believe in seeing the light in others and offering them the support they need to better themselves.

But I also know that it is extremely important that we be realistic about what is what and who is who.

Eight hundred

First off, let me start by thanking Lisa and Frank for their donations.

Now…

Eight hundred.

That’s the amount missing right now.

This is how I look.

I do not want to look like this. To say that I am self-conscious would be an understatement. To say that I look like a monster, over dramatizing. I just don’t feel like going out of the house, being seen by people. It is difficult to look people in the eye.

I want to have a normal life, and enjoy it. To eat proper food. To be able to smile.

And I need your help to do this.

Eight hundred dollars needed to raise.

We can do this. I know we can.

If everyone who reads this post donated $10, we’d have the money by tomorrow. Only $10.

Like I always say, little by little becomes a lot.

I need this treatment as soon as possible. This stage is important. I need to get the bridge done, so I don’t risk breaking the fiber glass implants. I need your help.

So, if you’d like to help me out, you can donate $10 via PayPal here.

Of course, you can send as much as you like, if you can afford it and are willing to.

Also, you can purchase reblogs here. Advertising here. And signed paperbacks here.

What I learned in five years of blogging

Five years. Five years of daily blogging. Five years since I decided to never give up, no matter what. To keep writing, to keep blogging, to just keep at it for as long as it took.

And what a ride it has been. Around the world, indeed. 200 or so countries. Lots and lots of people, lots and lots of stories… Continue reading
