I’ve spent many years trying to inspire other people to do better, they love the love and affection, but they don’t really change much and sometimes regress. I decided that making myself a better example does more, plus it gives me control over life. The people who are paying attention aren’t the same, but the other people will feel the push to follow their own path more readily. /Basically, you can love people, you can teach people, but people believe actions over words. A sentence takes only moments (maybe longer if you are writing anything worth reading), actions can change lives. 7 months ago
The rush of the last minute wears off, but the failure of never meeting your full potential due to lack of time remains.
I’ve been procrastinating before I knew what it was. It will get done eventually, becomes forget it, much more often than lets just get it done. Failure is much easier to meet this way than success is. Sure, maybe you want to wait until you know enough to get it done right, just get as far as you can before you know more and then add that knowledge to your assignment. We all know just about anything is more fun than getting homework done sometimes, but putting it off makes it worse. Okay, fine, me telling you that procrastinating is wrong is making you feel even more like procrastinating. That is fine, but eventually you may hit the same wall I did and realize that you need to stop slacking off. If that day comes, go back to the basics of study habits, time management and setting reasonable goals.

Food really does grow on trees.
Better still, most wild flowers and weeds happen to be edible.
And get this, some flowers create their own brewing yeast so with a bit of research, you can start your own cordial from… dandelion even.
From fruit compotes to syrups and jams, it’s a wonder I’m not vegetarian.
A jar can grow common culinary herbs and the shallow root system can keep your plants from overgrowing what limited space you might have. Like mint, parsley, sage and onion. 10 months ago
People who stagnate tend to putrefy and linger at locations well beyond wanting. Social relationships adapt and even decay.
It’s human nature, or homo sapien natura, to need to travel. After all, humanity once use to migrate with the seasons, forming communities, social bonds and founding culture along the way.
With travel to new destinations we find ourselves meeting new and different people.
Trying new things and exploring provides us with the learning opportunity to decide what we like and don’t like. And what we know now as a good a friend was once a stranger.
After all, a fresh perspective improves our mood and there by also improves upon the quality of our lives. 10 months ago
Much like gambling, people who want to be happy or rich struggle with the idea of creating their own happiness or wealth.
These things are never limited by materials but rather limited by what one is aware of within themselves. This is why and how spiritual development is a means of experiencing personal ecstasy.
An overwhelming feeling of great happiness or joyful excitement.
An emotional or religious frenzy or trancelike state, originally one involving an experience of mystic self-transcendence.
Chemicals are a manufactured affliction while spirituality is the development of control and limited exclusively by our own personal limitations.
Everything that can be physically stimulated within the human body can be done from conscious effort without external action.
Like a muscle, we choose to interpret an experience as either positive or negative, despite the hard wiring of our genetics to interpret them. Will power can bend that interpretation to ones reasoning. Be the creator of your own happiness.
By using drugs for recreation, it chemically burns out the neurological receptors the body needs to feel, there by crippling the user from ever experiencing that height of sensation again. Once gone, like an amputee, those neurons are permanently gone and will not grow back, including any memory or skill impressed onto that neuron, like talking walking or any of the other basic senses.
There is an antidote to drugs but a drug dealer will never supply it. 10 months ago
It took me fifteen miserable years with parents suffering from untreated mental disorders before I found out about legal ‘Emancipation of minors.’
It took me fifteen miserable years more to find out how to gain my identification without my parents cooperation and endure the struggle to live.
Emancipation of minors provides a child with unfit parents to take on the legal, financial and physical responsibilities for them self.
Sad to say, but some children can take care of themselves better than their parents can. 10 months ago
This is a tough one to learn. One of the reasons is that early in life our earning power isn’t yet maximized, so we tend to buy what we can “afford.” Except we find out that the cheap fix is wrong on both counts. In the end, it’s not cheap, and it doesn’t fix a thing. So, this tip is, figure out the most you can afford for a certain item, and then buy one step up. If you want it or need it badly enough, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’re better off without it. 7 years ago
This could be something complex and vague.
It could be picking the right college major, loving your job or finding the right partner. It could be enjoying the sunset from your apartment. As long as you or anyone else isn’t hurt (bonus if someone is helped) than it really doesn’t matter what makes you happy. 13 months ago
Letting go works for everything from anger to grudges. More often than not holding onto these things will make you miserable. 18 months ago
Popularity tends to find you when you learn to appreciate who you already have in your life, even if it doesn’t that support network is vital. If someone doesn’t accept you, don’t push it. She could decide to accept you or could feel the desperation and push you away. 22 months ago
Seriously, the work you put into a budget will save you time and effort in the future. It could even save you from dramatic life changes, resulting from too little money. Spending above my means has become such a habit, that is why it is important to start early. 22 months ago
This should be common sense, but for those of us with hearts bigger than our sense this is important. Listen to red flags, learn to be a better person and if you think it is abuse: tell someone or get out. I’ve met too many good people, men and women, who have been brought down by an abusive person. The best way to prevent it is to learn how to treat others and be in a successful relationship. You may be better off alone, than with the wrong person. 22 months ago
