The Road to Enlightenment

I like to stay inspired, learning what I can about the world. It’s been an experience continuing to open my eyes more and more, uncovering more about the purpose of life. Of my influences, Russell Brand is one person among many who serves as a valued voice speaking of the injustices that have been plaguing the world from wealth inequality to political corruption. Many who are deeply intertwined and interested solely in pop culture know very little about the problems the facing our world today. People are focusing on their social media status or famous people who sing songs about money and getting girls, […]

“When I Stop Struggling, I Float; It’s the Law.”

We all struggle with the endless ups and downs of life; it’s human nature to isolate ourselves and think we’re alone in our experiences. Doing your best to stay positive is something certainly easier said than done. Certain events in life may bring forth negative thinking patterns that, when given the right opportunity, can wreak havoc on our lives.

We might find that as soon as one bad thing happens, we associate it with other negative feelings and […]

My Perspective on Life & The World

For my weekly blogs, I’d rather talk about what’s happened in my life and what’s going on in the universe. Every time I do, I feel like reader’s have no idea where my head is, like I’m crazy or something. From my point of view, most people think that life is nothing but what they see in front of them; ‘what you see is what you get’. Black and white. I refuse to accept that belief and point of view (respectfully, of course), because I know there’s more under the surface of every experience and opportunity; to every facet of […]

Social Media: The Decline of Face-to-Face Communication

Commuting back and forth to work everyday, you tend to see a lot of different people. Everybody’s different in there own way. There’s one thing that everybody has these days: a cell phone. 9/10 people are either looking down at their cell phone, scrolling through the Facebook news feed or talking with somebody on a call. This new technology has completely changed the way we communicate. It’s changed just about everything about us, altering our very culture; it’s changed the way we engage with one another, the way we market brands and ourselves. To all of us it seems like these […]

When Opportunity Conquers Fear

There’s always some sort of up and down in life. It’s never just a steady track. When you think about past experiences and what you’ve been through, they’re all a sum of who you are as a person today; the good and the bad are equally important. We will all come across big opportunities to achieve something great, but we may be too nervous or lack the confidence to press forward; for example, interviews or presentations are the two things that always make me sweat. When I got my first agency job, I almost didn’t go to the interview. I […]
