The Truth About Victimhood

It’s true that anyone can fall victim to something unwanted whether it be illness, crime or nature, but it’s the labels we impose on ourselves that will determine whether we remain victims or forge ahead as conquerors, strengthened by adversity and accepting of what life puts before us. When the word victimhood is imposed onContinue reading “The Truth About Victimhood”

The Truth About Inclusivity

The word ‘inclusive’ sounds awesome, right? All you can drink, all you can eat, and everyone’s invited! If that’s the case, I’m left wondering why it seems like there are so many restrictions to what is deemed inclusive. Has this word been hijacked like so many others to mean the opposite and it now requiresContinue reading “The Truth About Inclusivity”

The Truth About Forgiveness

Forgiveness is not for wimps and it’s not about choosing between letting go or revenge. The greatest strength of will and character is needed to forgive. On one hand it entails addressing pain caused by trusted loved ones or confidants and on the other, the violations imposed on us by low vibration people whose soleContinue reading “The Truth About Forgiveness”

The Truth About Loss

Have you ever noticed how when some people suffer a loss, large or small, they often think that there was no ‘reason’ for it, as if actual reasoning had been spent on wondering why things play out in their lives in the way that they do? The thing is, nature doesn’t need to give youContinue reading “The Truth About Loss”

Forcing A Creative Environment

If you’ve been following along here or Instagram, you are aware of my Photos From The Matrix project. For the past six months I’ve been photographing myself in grocery stores and other places of business to assist me in elaborating on the idea of seperation from nature, immersion in the artificial and the importance weContinue reading “Forcing A Creative Environment”

Creative Self Expression Saved My Life

I recently retitled my blog to Saved By Self Expression because I believe that our unique creative expression is the answer to many of our perceived problems. Everything I write here is tied to our thinking, molding, influences and whether or not the ideas that we express as our own, actually are our authentic beliefs.Continue reading “Creative Self Expression Saved My Life”

Intolerance is Hot Right Now

There’s a person I know, someone who I’ve admired for years–creative, passionate about life, engaging, fun, a joy.  But then I realized that nearly every moment she shares on social media has been of outrage and venomous hatred. It’s gone so far that she has even called for the death of people she does notContinue reading “Intolerance is Hot Right Now”

Is Halloween the Only Day for Honesty?

Today is Halloween and it occurred to me that it is the one day where people honestly present themselves as something that they are not. Take a second to grasp this.  The rest of the year, we present ourselves how we want other people to perceive us. It’s really a costume party all year longContinue reading “Is Halloween the Only Day for Honesty?”

Embrace Your Inner Dodo Bird

I often think about identity, persona and how we see ourselves. In my book Toxic Rainbows, I talk about how I felt early on that I was different, not the fact that I was a minority, but that my thinking was not quite the same as most and I saw that the brilliance in ourContinue reading “Embrace Your Inner Dodo Bird”

BOOK RELEASE! Toxic Rainbows out now!

I’m very happy to announce the release of my first book, Toxic Rainbows. I have so many feelings and thoughts associated with what I’ve written that I struggle with even giving it an elevator pitch that does it justice.  It’s philosophical, psychological, spiritual, autobiographical–it’s a manual for gaining clarity in a world that is designedContinue reading “BOOK RELEASE!
