Turn off the “News” and Turn on YOUR truth YOUR Power

News - This is what is new for meI challenge you to stop watching the news, listening to news radio, or reading news magazines and websites, and NOT feel better.  I certainly felt much calmer, relaxed, peaceful, and at ease without that constant stream of negativity conditioning us to believe that this is the dominant way of our world. The proof for me is asking this question: how many people do I know personally that commit violent acts or are violated on a daily basis? I don't know any people who commit acts of terror, murder, rape, robbery, or battery, and yet if I watch the news I'm told these people are everywhere all around me. And even if our world is this violent how does sitting on the couch watching endless stories about it help...

Dieting and Workouts are Bad for my Health

Workouts - Playing out at the beachWhat?!? Sound crazy? Well for me eating food I don’t want to eat and doing workouts I don’t want to do, that’s crazy. I tried for decades to commit to formulaic diets and regimented gym workouts. I stuck it out for months and sometimes as long as a year, and every time I would eventually burnout.

GoPro Hero5 Session – First Surf Session – Technology and Love – Video

GoPro Hero5 Session - First Surf SessionA mini video review and my thoughts on the GoPro Hero5 Session camera.  Also I talk a bit about the expectations and desire for new tech and the reality of how we feel after we get it.  I swapped out the original GoPro session for this new one and gave it go on my bamboo SUP surfboard mounted elevated pole.  I am impressed, as the camera looks and sounds better with more image capturing horsepower in it.  Feeling stoked!  I am looking forward to capturing many adventures this fall and winter…

Getting “Married” to Our Neighbors

BirdsTogether_8542What would you call a couple that lives in separate houses, doesn’t eat meals together, dates other people, and splits custody of their children? I would call this couple separated and if they aren’t already I’d say they will be divorced soon. We have this similar separation from our neighbors and our community and yet we don’t say we are divorced, we say this is normal and the way we are supposed to live.

I am twice married and both times our relationship changed significantly after we got married and lived together. In my dating experience there was often much time apart, and before we saw each other there was a discussion about where, how, and when we will be reunited. Then there was the parting of ways and saying goodbye for the night or maybe forever. For me that’s the real difference between dating and being married, we are uncertain where we stand and if this person is going to be in our life and for how long. Probably the real question we need answered is…
