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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
