The Normalcy Of Misery

“I look forward to spending time with my friends so that we can catch up and tell each other how horrible

  • We are
  • Our family is
  • Our friends are
  • Our co-workers are
  • Our employer is
  • Our nation is
  • Is the entire race of human beings“


Take a five breaths and hear them out. Maybe that is what they want to say; maybe not. Ask them to tell you more. Reply “Gotcha…and…?”; sometimes it works wonders. “Gotcha… you are a horrible person and are we still going to the concert this Friday?”. “And” turns the topics from a roadblock into a speed bump; you can still go somewhere with it. Better to move forward then sit in the muck of bad ideas that probably aren’t even true.

You got a friend who is angry all time?

You ever ask them why and they never have an answer or if they do it makes no sense?

Alive and Healthy: Feeding Your Brain For Fun Or Focus (Podcast 26)


Your happiness is easily in your control by making your mind your best friend.

Create an environment where your mind can thrive instead of making it your worst enemy who knows every trick to get you caught up with its junk.

What you eat creates the environment for your own freedom or slavery; you are your own creator of your joy and your misery.

Happy brain; happy owner.

The You That Your Friends See

Your friends don’t see the horrible story that your mind is telling you that you are. In fact: no one does. It is a habit of your mind to get you distracted from anything that threatens it’s paper tiger kingdom. When you give yourself a break you are really giving yourself a break from your mind. You will have a lot more energy for having done so, too.
