…and a bit about me.
I’m a storytelling, problem solving, family man.
I’m not unintelligent…but I’m no rocket scientist either.
I recognise my current limits, and I live to “push the envelope”.
The weekly blog posts on this site are short stories, with three main objectives in mind.
Education: I hope you learn something from them – usually, this will be learning from my mistakes! But if that saves you time, money or even just the stress or embarrassment, I hope you get some value from that.
Entertainment: I hope you laugh at my pain – I do! I’ve chosen to view my life as a bit of a dramedy. I don’t enjoy pain, discomfort, or confrontations with others – but I have chosen not to avoid these aspects of life and do my best to reframe them mentally. For that reason, I don’t stay mad, stressed or down for too long and I can see the humour in my failings.
Encouragement: I hope you will be inspired to challenge yourself, to try new things and to live your life to the fullest. I may never actually get to space, live to see world peace, or figure out what consciousness is all about, but the journey towards these goals will be an exciting one – with its own pleasures.
This site is a way for me to record my experiences and experiments in search of “peace of mind” and “purposeful progress” towards other worthwhile goals.
If no one else looks at this but my own two children (once they’re old enough, and before they couldn’t care less), that’s fine…but maybe it will be educational, entertaining or encouraging for others too. Maybe.
That’s not me. Just saying.
