In Preparation of Whatever May Come...

"E re nata. Aut viam inveniam aut faciam."

As circumstances dictate. I will either find a way or make one

Its approximately 7:30. I'm tired and exhausted physically from one extreme workout but for some reason my mind and spirit are still as wired as ever. For the past couple of months (actually all my life but not to this extreme) I've felt like I've been preparing for something yet I can't put my finger on what it is or who it involves...yet it feels like whatever is coming I need to be at my best at all times in every way and ready.

For all I know it could be a life or direction changing thing, the usual right place at the right time, or something else.......but in the mean time....I'm going to continue to workout and push my physical limits to get better and make sure I'm physical ready and capable to do my best. AS ALWAYS I consult with God on the spiritual, and mentally I know I've slacked a bit to give my detail oriented mind a vacation. As a result I've missed a few details...but as whatever this is rolls around...I'll be back on point like clockwork. I'm sure some of my friends have realized a slight change in my Demeanor only because of my focus..just don't take it in offense..it's not like that.

Mind, Body, and Spirit.......take care of them and they will take care of you.

Aside..well partially related....The dreams are back.....and as always far from average and test me in character and skill...with risk as always. I wonder sometimes if I should create a separate blog that details my dreams. I think they would be a very interesting read...almost story like but puzzles as well. Some of the people involved I know and some I don't...but we'll see.

Welp I'm going to get cleaned up....stay tuned for my 2011 blog.....or any blogs leading up to that.....if you don't have blogspot check out my link for Just a guy on tumbler.

2 + 2 = UHHH ?

I'm starting to think cognitive skills otherwise known as the ability to put 2 and 2 together is rapidly dwindling.......

With the uprise of Google, Bing, twitters, even FB, insert whatever search engine and mind personality blirt (Venue) you choose ....and laziness (possibly killing the ability to read one another or read between the lines, etc) following accordingly I find myself not even trying in any form of interaction or communicating and receiving many looks that only remind me of the following words

Buffering............still loading.......2%.......error.....blue screen of death...and for you mac users...volley ball of doom.

I guess with the world at your fingertips....that apparently justifies the loss of ones ability to listen and really think.....................if you haven't realized...I'm being sarcastic here.....BUT ITS ELEMENTARY my dear Watson.....no really you learned to think and assess at a young age I hope....

You may find that one is very powerful and can learn and solve AND avoid a lot of unnecessary things AND ACHIEVE A LOT when they can put 2 and 2 together. Eventually it all adds up to paying attention to details and the quality of which you receive information and retain it...........but as my mom would probably say...it usually goes "one ear and out the other".......so I guess most will probably google there own cognitive skills in substitution ...or into submission....and assume things the rest of their life as we throw our thoughts and actions out there unattended and not thought out ...therefore left to a BIG GREY AREA FOR MISINTERPRETATION MISUNDERSTANDING MISTAKES..........and the occasional awkward or unnecessary moments...and missing a lot of good fun.

you know eventually I just turn that confusion into a source of entertainment just to see people make that sloth face.....you know The Goonies HEEEEY YOOOU GUUUUUUYS!?

but hey I'm


P.s. and as always these are just my thoughts in the moment…..okay maybe for a while but a while in the moment….lol

A Good Man Stands for Something........

Every good man has to stand for something otherwise he is idle and being idle is ineffective nor what your life needs. The world will tell you you need to be more this or you need to be more that but there are 3 things I believe a man needs to be despite how he may be TOLD how he should be.

1. He needs to live with purpose (an objective in mind to implement and achieve)

2. He needs, at the basic level, his faith or belief (support) system (His drive, goal, religion, relationship, or family, etc)

3. He needs to represent, implement, and take care of the things he cares most about despite any form of criticism as long as it remains ethical (productive with minimal harm possible) nor overly compromising to who he really is.

at his core these things are tested through patience, outside judgment,trials and tribulations, jobs, relationships, and the everyday tasks........He doesn't waste nor should he waste much of his time proving himself to others (unless necessary) but truly to himself.....outside opinions, "standards", and ideals change everyday but the one you hold for yourself is what compels YOU and can influence those. changing elements. They say a lot of things about what makes a good man....but what makes him good is how he carries these 3 throughout his life. its truly 5 a.m. and my thoughts in the moment....I've lived an oddball life thus far with a few overlaps with whats considered common...but I know what I do and why... as should you...

Maturity Part 1: Act your age or pretend really well...

yea yea I know it took so long for this blog as I promised in earlier blogs to happen....a lot of things have happened lately....but but NO EXCUSES lol I accept my delay :P

Its one of those words that get thrown around quite loosely without really a true understanding of it. Too much like words such as love, friendship, and genius. Often times it is used in judgment and often the people themselves using it don't fully represent it either (hypocrisy if you will). Growing up the way I did, I learned that...

maturity is how one handles information..

Something this world holds an abundance of and is one heck of a power in reality...with it comes great responsibility (Ooooh Spiderman oh SNAP!!)....so to truly test "MATURITY" is to test and see how one handles information don't you think?

Usually in the idea of maturity...you take the information to create the best outcome possible with minimal drama as possible or at least stabilize things. You keep things moving and hopefully improve on them as you accept not deny your contribution or decisions in anything. You don't harp and you don't shift blames. You take responsibility, remain respectful, and productive in whatever it may be. You know your limits, when to push, and when to cut...okay maybe the when to cut gets a little gray but don't go cutting all willy nilly.....its like going into a gun store with a knife......your only screwing yourself there.

but most likely we tend to let info cause us to lose control and allow our emotions, vendettas, routine self destruct mechanisms, or external influences to override our better judgment as we cover our own flaws in maturity saying FTW!!! (with soap box optional) whiiiiich usually keeps us from doing things the best way possible and cease in learning and progressing.

rightfully so we can have a legitimate reason depending on the info (cheating, slander behind the scenes, any type of discrepancy) to be agitated....but that too creates problems and compromise who we are and the best outcome if we allow it too.

I learned in MY life that there are two ways one learns maturity...

1)with time and age given their own experiences with trial and error.....which can be very long winded for the sheltered and those living in stubbornness or overly wreckless.

2)intentionally understanding the lives and experiences of those before you....this was how I started off being given I was raised with baby boomers for my first real friends. (Same script different cast)

It really speeds up the course when you learn by both methods...but most learn by number 1......if at all :/

Everyday life:
One of things that bothers me is when maturity is indirectly used when people say "ACT LIKE AN ADULT" or to that effect....Playground politics never die...so to me the adult is a figment of your imagination....a specialized group or "click" if you will....its kind of like calling yourself the cool kids.....so really is that as mature as you think it is. We're all just big developing kids.....just some of us are more stubborn then others in the handling of things the best way..CONSISTENTLY. so when your saying to me act like an adult your really about two shades away from saying

"nanny nanny boo boo...I've got something yoooou don't ...I'm better than yooooou......I got some iiiiice cream, you didn't geeeet none" sorry got carried away :P *adjust tie*

now..I'm just going to talk on two sections of life.

Love life:
Okay seriously.......whether eharmony, speed dating, coffee house, or nicholas sparks like events, the club, arts and craft meet, [insert whatever dating environment here] Maturity was the last thing on your list of things to think about at the time of Ooo aa and oo shiny (translation: interest in each other) ..but yet its used as the supposed initial standard by men and women as to whether you'll be with them. (sips beer). Thats just something you find out over time that seals the deal. I'm sure we don't go "Hey here is my maturity card..been a member since mm/dd/yyyy" and by time most of you realized whether the person is good at being mature (handling things better) or not..well some of you know the rest...sooo I'll shut up here and save that for another day. :P

Maturity..........it knows no bounds here and usually the worst are in highest position but those who can use information and handle life right...excel quite well in making their work environment comfortable moderately and making it up the ladder.... enough said.

if there is something you'd like me to touch on with this...please let me know...I'll gladly touch on it in part 2. but hey this is just my thoughts and at the end of the day you know what I am....:P


P.S. Some of you really need to pull your heads out.... maturity requires breaking a cycle....hard to see and create a better future when your to busy watching history repeat itself. :P
