DO NOT SACRIFICE ANYTHING

My grandmother made potato pies for me last night. Everything about eating those pies seemed criminal: after a hard training of burning calories, way past 6 pm food cut-off, too close to my bedtime, and not a good time to eat carbs. I felt miserable at facing this decision, but I saw that human...

SUFFERING & FEAR ARE IN THE MIND

I heard Alex Hormozi say this on a podcast: "I have sh*t loads of money. I live in a first-world country, and I am married." I immediately thought: "Well, I don't have sh*t loads of money. I don't live in a first-world country now, and I am not married...Am I deficient?" My grandfather told me...

NOBODY NEEDS ANYTHING

I always looked down on instant coffee. What a disgrace. My eyes never landed on the instant coffee aisle. It wasn't that I didn't like it, but I never recognized it among the others. At the store recently, my friend got a Jacobs 3in1. I got curious, and wanted to try it too. When I sipped...

REFUSE TO FEEL DEFICIENT

Society, family, and culture condition us for a permanent sense of deficiency. This trait runs in your family, so you're doomed. You don't meet these job descriptions. You need more credit hours. You've always been this way, and I doubt you'll ever resolve it. You haven't worked 5 years in...

DIE INTO YOUR LIFE.

What if I died and then suddenly woke up into my Life? Instead of regret, I would be excited about Life's possibilities. Instead of bitterness, I would feel amazement at being a part of this World. Instead of jealousy, I would overdose on fulfillment of being ME. Instead of criticism, I would...

TRUE BRANDS WHISPER THROUGH TIME.

The sweet peach flavor infused my bathroom. The soothing color attracted my eyes. As I was taking a shower, I found myself staring at a pack of Zewa toilet paper I had just bought. I genuinely wondered: WHY IS THERE A TOILET PAPER BRAND? Long thinking pause in the shower* How on earth do I even...

MASSIVE HEART SHAREHOLDER

Why does this person hold such an unfair piece of my heart? I seek that person with extraordinary passion. I am dedicated to her despite the odds. I make exceptions. I negotiate my rules. I change my standards. From the outside, it seems irrational and unhealthy. Why are you so attached to...

PEOPLE WILL DIE TONIGHT.

I live next to lethal crossroads. Almost every night, there is a crash. As I come home, I see red lights, police, and broken car pieces. People are weeping. Others are staring. Georgian drivers are short-tempered, overconfident, and violent. Coupled with brainless road infrastructure, this...

IT TAKES COURAGE TO EAT YOUR OWN SALAD

I feel immense stress when I step into the kitchen at my co-working space. Everyone else has their neat delivery bags with fancy foods. I walk in with bulky grocery bags. I get out the board and knife. I wash the green leaves. It gets messy and wet. People are staring at me. People hiss at me...

HOW I SOLVED JEALOUSY

People (men) at my coworking space consistently compliment me. These compliments don't touch me. They come from people ignorant of a price that was paid for the shiny thing they want. Do you want a nice body/$1 Mill? Of course! Do you want to do the work to get it? ... In most cases, people...
