Are you an introvert? You’re the master artist

Before we begin, what are introverts? Introverts are people that recharge when they are alone. They essentially thrive on their own, as opposed to their counterparts: extroverts.

The key thing here for introverts is their ability to be comfortable AND thrive in their own company.

Secondly, what’s an artist? An artist is a creator! whether it be a painting or a business or a scientific theory. An artist is original in their thinking.

The benefits of being an introvert lie in their comfort being in solitude.

Benefits of solitude 

1.Increased efficiency: When you’re an introvert, you recharge by yourself. You’re like a car that doesn’t need to spend fuel in order to gain fuel. This makes you effectively more efficient than your counterparts and this helps you create because you will have more energy and time because you don’t need to go out to get your ‘fix’. This freed time and energy can be utilised for creating something!

2. less interfering energies. Energetically, everyone has an aura, a bubble of energy around them that interacts with everyone and everything in their proximity. (this is why nature is so therapeutic) When surrounded by lots of people, usually with incompatible/conflicting aura’s this can cause confusion in the aura. This confusion requires cleansing to return to homeostasis. When in homeostasis, you feel better and when you feel better, you’ll create better work.aura

Also, as an artist, there are only certain thoughts you can attract only if your energy is right. Thoughts are ideas. You can see why this is important for an artist.

3. As an introvert, since you’re alone quite a lot, you tend to be more unique, this is due to the fact that the more people that you hang around, the bigger the influence they will have on you. These relationships affect your opinions on matters too, so if you have less interfering influence, you’re more likely to have an original perspective! which is the currency of creativity.

The greatest spurts of creativity tend to be anti-cultural, perhaps even ahead of their time. These tend to come from an outsiders perspective, which is usually an introvert.

4.  The final reason is solitude itself! Sometimes you need to be alone to be inspired, some of my best ideas have come from journaling. That eureka! moment tends to come while on your own when distractions, energetically and otherwise, are as few as possible.

I’m not the only one who thinks this, Csikszentmihalyi, the author of flow, suggested that creative individuals tend to be strong on certain traits, such as introversion.

I’ll end this post with a few quotes on solitude.

“Isolation offers its own form of companionship”

“Children love to be alone because alone is where they know themselves, and where they dream”

“Isolation offers its own form of companionship”

“Solitude is the mother of creativity”

P.S some of humanity’s greatest artists have been serial introverts: Nikola Tesla, Albert Einstein, Charles Dicken, the list could go on…

Anyway, if you’re an introvert, utilise your advantage and create!


Firstly, I’ll start off by saying I’m no expert at skating, not even close. I’m just a guy who’s been skating for nearly 3 years (at the time of this writing) I’ve learned a lot and through observation, I’ve noticed lessons that apply outside of skating too.

Some of these lessons can be obtained through other sports/hobbies. Some may be obvious, others not so. The key thing here is experience, I probably had an intellectual understanding of these lessons but: you can know something but until you experience it for yourself, you’ll laugh at the fact that you ever thought you knew it

Anyway, here’s the list:

1.Discipline: I skate when I’m tired, when it’s cold, when it’s raining, when I really don’t want to, when I’m injured, when I have a busy day, I skate every day because I find having discipline in one area leads to discipline in all areas. Discipline helps me to achieve my goals, not just in skating but in life too. Here’s a quick video on the importance of a hobby.

2.Patience: Sometimes it takes me months to learn a new trick, even if I practice every day. Sometimes it takes a few hours. I’ve realised as long as I keep practising, I’ll eventually learn that trick, no matter how terrible I may be at the start.

This applies to life, sometimes what you want takes longer than you thought it would, having patience allows you to wait without stressing out about it, thus your experience while waiting can be positive instead of stressful.

3.Mastery: Again, I’m not even remotely close to mastering skateboarding, but I know enough about the process of getting good at something. I know what it takes and I now have a huge respect for anyone that’s mastered anything. I’ve experienced first hand that mastery of anything does not come easy. But at the same time, I’ve realised it’s just practice and consistency. With enough of this, I believe I can master anything.

4. You Reap what you sow: The more I practice, the better I get, it’s really that simple. The more effort I put in, the bigger the reward. In life, whether it be studying or a task you need to learn, effort is usually correlated with progress. If you want to maximise your results, maximise your effort.

5. My work ethic:  The thing with skating, there’s no one telling you what to do. There’s no boss or teacher ordering you around. It’s all on you. I’ve learned when I commit I just don’t stop. I’ve had to start taking breaks when I skate to prevent injuries. I now know what commitment for me looks like, Therefore I can use this to gauge my level of commitment outside of skating.

6. How to learn faster: If you’re learning anything, it’s best to have as little distractions as possible. I used to wear headphones when I started skating but that only slowed down my progress. I’ve noticed focus is the best tool when learning. You may get away with a wayward attention if you’ve mastered the skill because your body can be on autopilot, but if you’re learning, it’s a recipe for disaster, believe me, I have the scars to prove it.

7. Persistence: Skating is 99% failing and 1% success. But I like to think each failure is just a redirection, each failure is actually a success when looked at this way. I’m no longer deterred by failure in anything, I know failing is just an indicator of what not to do. I now know if I keep pivoting and trying, I will eventually hit the jackpot.

8. To get better, level UP: I used to think if you want to get better at something, you have to keep repeating it until you master it. Wrong! From skating I’ve realised this is a slow way to learn. If you want to get better at level 3, practice level 5. It will force you to use the resources you didn’t even know you had and it will make level 3 look like a piece of cake. If you have 1 hour to do something, try and do it in 30 minutes. If you’re shy then go speak in front of large crowds. If you want to get better at lifting 30kg, lift 50kg, I think you get the idea.

9. Pivot: Stagnation is the opposite of happiness. If I carry on doing the same thing for too long, I start to hate skating and no I’m not exaggerating. So I’m usually learning a few tricks at a time, if I get bored of one then I just switch it up. This keeps things fresh and interesting in my mind and prevents me from burning out. This is true in life too, if you’re feeling burnt out, just do something else for a little while, when you come back you’ll be refreshed and more focussed than before.

10. My method: I’m not like most people who want to learn the flashiest tricks straight away. There’s nothing wrong with that but I have the opposite mindset. I like to build on the basics first, get a nice solid foundation if you will. I do this intuitively, I have a keen sense of knowing that your ability to do the complex rests on your ability to do the basics. This is true in life: have a solid foundation in anything that you start, whether it be a skill or relationships; without it, the structure won’t get very high or it will fall, if it tries.

11. My Personality: Skateboarding for me has been a tool for self-discovery. I’ve learned that I’m achievement oriented. My best moments when I skate are when I’m giving my all and when I learn something new. I quickly get bored if I stay at the same level for too long.

Skating for me is also an outlet; It’s a thing where I’m in total control of; no one slows me down or vice-versa. It’s all on me. I love the sense of freedom and independence skating grants me, but most of all, I love the unlimited growth it has. There is always something new to learn.

Learning about myself allows me to know what I like so I can make better choices. Now that I know my drug of choice, perhaps once this phase is over, I’ll pick a less painful way to get my fix. Which leads me to…

12. Pain tolerance: If I had to sum up skating in one word: pain. These days I’m usually rocking multiple forms of injuries from skating. Although I experience a lot of pain, I never suffer.

Life can be painful but suffering is a choice. I’ve experienced this first hand. When I experience acute pain, I just focus on it, I watch it in the third person. I notice the pain is there, but I notice I’m the noticer of the pain, not the pain itself; I’m separate from it. With this knowledge, I don’t become the pain, so I don’t suffer.

I know that I am awareness, and so are you.

In a way, I learn to enjoy it, it’s very stimulating and energising, although, I certainly won’t be inviting it to my party.

Knowing that you are not the pain but the watcher of it is life changing. In life, carrying this perspective all-ways can be difficult but it’s incredibly freeing and with practice, it’s certainly achievable.

13. Use it or lose it: If I don’t practice a trick, I get worse and worse at it. This gets less pronounced the more I’ve mastered the trick but If I’ve just learnt a trick and I don’t practice it enough; I will have to learn it again. This is true in life also, if you neglect things you will lose them; whether it be a skill or relationships, you have to nurture things in order to keep them.

14. Letting go: I used to have goals to learn x trick in x weeks. I noticed sometimes I would go waaaay over. I wanted to learn the kickflip in 3 weeks, it took me closer to 3 months;  sometimes it’s the opposite. I’ve realised it’s best to just let go of expectations and just do your best each session.

In life, you’re not really in control of your progress, but you are in control of your process.  Don’t focus on the goal, focus on your actions. If you do this, even if you fail, you won’t have regrets because you know you did your best.

How Reading Makes you Smarter

I’ll define ‘smart’ in this context as the ability to comprehend incoming information.

There are 3 main ways I believe reading makes you smarter.

  1. Attaining new information
  2. Practising visualisation
  3. Stretching of the mind

#1 is quite obvious. If you have knowledge on the subject then you are more likely to understand something i.e you have knowledge of how to read English, hence why you can comprehend this sentence.

#2 is a bit more complicated. Visualisation is often the key to understanding concepts. Often you seem to finally understand something when you just ‘see’ it in your mind’s eye. This is a muscle that can be trained and it was used by Nikola Tesla to great effect.

Reading allows you to train this muscle, particularly if it’s a ‘story-type-book‘ where you can imagine the characters coming to life in your mind’s eye.

#3 is a little harder to explain. Basically, you have certain ways of thinking, a set system of how you articulate your thoughts and process information. This includes all your false knowings too which are not to be confused with beliefs.

Belief = I believe X will win.

Knowing = X won.

When you confront new sentence structures while reading, it literally trains your mind to process information in a new way.

It’s impossible to understand what you read while simultaneously carrying a false knowing. Either you aren’t going to understand or you’re going to let go of your false knowing and open your mind.

If you pick the latter, that false knowing is gone forever, meaning when you confront new information, that lie will no longer prevent you from understanding. Thereby making smarter.

Example of a false knowing:

Being told blue is red. See how this makes no sense? You can’t see or understand how this could be true. Because you know blue is blue. This knowing prevents you from seeing that blue is actually red.

Whether what you know is true or not is irrelevant. As long as you believe it, it’s your experience.

Letting go of the mind’s false knowings is the muscle’s equivalent of becoming more flexible.

Uncomfortable/hard poses, stretch the body. Uncomfortable/hard information stretches the mind.

The more you do this, the less rigid your mind becomes thus becoming more flexible, therefore the easier it will be to understand new information.

“The mind, once stretched by a new idea, never returns to its original dimensions.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Reading is key to this because the more you read, the more chances you get to expose your false knowings. Therefore the more chances you have to remove them.


The more different the material you’re reading is to your default thought pattern/vocabulary, the more of a stretch reading will be for you. The more you stretch the mind, the smarter you will get.

Read unfamiliar books/subjects/authors to achieve this.

Reading isn’t the only way to get smarter of course. If you don’t like reading but still want to get smarter then I’m sure you can come up with creative ways to gain new information, visualise and to stretch your mind!

I’ll finish this article with this reminder:

“Learning never exhausts the mind” – Leonardo Da Vinci

Stay in your Locus.


Things inside your locus are:







what you consume

how you react



Things outside your locus:




other people

amongst many others

Yes, you could argue you have some modicum of control in the things I’ve placed outside your locus, but it’s exactly that, a modicum. It’s unreliable at best and at worst emotionally expensive on your part to try and control it.

How you react is by far the most powerful tool at your disposal. You have autonomy in how you choose to react to all the things I’ve placed outside your locus.

“No one can make you feel anything without your permission”

Choose to react in a way that serves you best. Hint: Complaining is the worst option (if peace/happiness is your goal that is)

If you focus on things you can control and let go of those you cannot, then you will be free from chronic negative emotions.

Why not choose it? You chose this

You are a playing a character in your own movie. The script you’re going off is based on your beliefs as well as your desires.

Your current beliefs are based on the choices you made in the past, many of them before you could speak or rationalise while your brain was still in its early development.

Without getting into the nitty-gritty on the topic, here’s the gist:

During childhood, you have an egocentric point of view, you think your point of view is THE point of view and you think now means always thus you form a faulty template of how you expect others to treat you. For example, if you were stigmatised for speaking up, you may grow up to be shy about expressing yourself.

Furthermore, as your cognitive abilities were also in their early developmental phase, they were far from accurate. Coupled with the egocentric point of view, you often had skewed thoughts stemming from this. For example, say one of your parents was always working, you were more likely to interpret this as somehow your fault, thinking they don’t love you enough and thus grow up to have low self-esteem/worthiness issues.

The good news is you can change this. You can re-write your script.

The script (your beliefs) is a programme on your computer (body-mind) just like on a computer, a programme can be altered/deleted, the same is true for your body-mind.

To change your beliefs you have to change your behaviour. “It easier to act your way into a new type of thinking than to think your way into a new way of acting”

So you have to change your behaviour consciously in order to match the belief you’d like to have. Whatever you’d like to be… confident/rich/kind etc, imagine how that version of you would behave, then act it out!

This will be uncomfortable of course. The priority for you brain is to keep you safe, rather than to thrive. To your brain, anything familiar is the default setting for ‘safe’, no matter how maladaptive it may be because as long as you’re alive, its all good.

Therefore, any changes in behaviour introduces new and unfamiliar risks so your brain will initially reject it. However, life itself is risky, to be alive is to expose yourself to risk so do it anyway.

Actors do this, they embrace a new character with ease through tools such as method acting.

So can you!

If you behave and think in accordance to a certain belief for long enough, that will become your new belief. This is because thought pattern and behaviour are the only things that sustain a belief.

Before you say it’s being “fake” it’s no more fake than you’re being right now, the only difference is the length of time you’ve been doing it for.

If you had your current world view while in your childhood, you’d understand that how you were treated is not an indicator of your worth or how you will be treated in the future. You can choose that perspective now and stop behaving from your childhood perspective.

So whatever you’ve been putting off, the kind of person you’d like to be, don’t wait Start Now! Although it may be painful to change, regret is worse “if pain is acute, then regret is chronic”

You can choose to be the best version of yourself.

So why not choose it? You chose this.

How to not get Hurt in Relationships

Being a serial planner, I like my days laid out with tasks to do and I like thinking weeks, months or even years ahead. This is great when it comes to accomplishing goals but it can be a misguided attitude when it’s applied to people.

I’ve noticed this is what I often do, particularly with girls, I get excited at the potential and I start projecting the things we could do together in my mind. After a short while, I’m already planning future events/occasions. I do this in my mind and when you visualise, you experience and this creates expectations in your mind, often unconsciously.

I learned that one of the biggest causes of pain after the ending of a relationship is the unfulfillment of these expectations. Those mental projections you really wanted to happen suddenly collapse along with the relationship. Leaving behind psychologically pain. So to prevent this pain you have to stop carelessly creating expectations. This, of course, is easier said than done.

When you’re visualising, you’re EXPERIENCING.  When you experience you unconsciously create expectations. If it’s only one of you, then this person will experience more of the relationship thus will be further ahead in said relationship and it will be unbalanced.

The one imagining the future will exhibit behaviours that are relative to what they’ve experienced, even if it was only in their imagination. This can create tension in the relationship, or behaviours were what’s appropriate for one person is completely inappropriate to the other due to being at different stages of the relationship.

As an extreme example, think premature proposals, where the two are at different stages, one has experienced a lot more of the relationship in their imagination and they unconsciously confuse it with reality and thus think it’s appropriate to propose but this can manifest in much more subtle ways too.

When a vision/fantasy/projection requires the other person to manifest, make sure that they have consented to be a part of it. To know you have this consent can take many months because “it matters more not what people say, but what they do consistently” over an extended period of time in order to establish the reliability of the person in question.

This cannot be known while in the early phases of a relationship.  Thus it’s futile and often naive to fantasise about the future with someone who cannot yet be relied upon. You have to know when a person is there to stay or if they’re just popping in for a quick visit. That way, you significantly reduce your chances of being left empty-handed after creating expectations which are consequently unmet.

Recognising the qualities of a person who is worthy of keeping around for the longer haul is thus imperative. Such a person will exhibit the following behaviour.

Aside from regularly seeking contact/communication with you, you will know this person because they will be impeccable with their word, they will be consistent in their treatment of you and if not, they will have a valid reason. They will do this consistently over an EXTENDED period of time. Of course, this doesn’t guarantee they will stay, life has no guarantees after all,  but it significantly reduces the chances of you being hurt.

Consistency is so key here because it builds trust, an integral part of any successful relationship.

If you don’t build some form of filtering process,  you can end up wasting time and emotional energy with temporary people. You may fantasise/project the future with this person in it but without their having consented, you will be building on a shaky foundation and likely you’d be left with a heavy heart due to the unfulfillment of your expectations.

While courting someone, it’s easy for your mind to indulge and wonder at future possibilities so I have 3 tools that have helped me.


To prevent unhealthy attachments:

  1. Practising mindfulness: when you’re projecting what could be you’re not in the present moment.  Be as mindful of your thoughts as you are with your actions and if you aren’t mindful of your actions, be mindful of your actions too!
  2. Focus on you: this prevents you from getting distracted and grounds you. Doing this will also help to attract people who will help you further, aka, attracting your tribe.
  3. Think practically not in fantasy if you attach to someone make sure it’s off something that’s real and in reality and not based off what you have imagined.


I’d like to make it clear that just because someone is temporary in your life doesn’t mean they’re not valuable to your growth. They are!

My point is it’s our expectations which often causes us the most pain and often can overshadow the value we can gain from relationships. In reducing our minds propensity to form expectations we can, to a large extent, prevent ourselves from getting needlessly hurt in relationships and increase our awareness of said value.

Finding Your Purpose, how to know what to do

You came here with your purpose intact, you forgot it because we weren’t taught to create a connection with our inner-self. Schooling is a major culprit to this. You start off your schooling/indoctrination career at a particularly mind-malleable age. So you’re more vulnerable to be influenced. Then at 18, they expect you to know what you wanna do with your life when not long ago you had to ask for permission to go to the toilet?

In school, you learn to operate from the outside. You learn to react to the outside world not how to respond to it. You learn to regurgitate not create. The opposite of what your purpose requires.

Your purpose, your values, your truth, are all INSIDE. Therefore, to find and live your purpose, the goal is to operate from the inside

what does this mean?  The outside is societal/cultural pressure, peer/familial pressure etc. Operating from the inside is the opposite of what you’ve been taught. This means to live authentically, to live irrespective of what the world has said you should do.

To do this you have to create a gap where you can facilitate the connection from the inside, you have to close the outside door just for a while and I have 3 easy ways to begin that connection if you haven’t already


This is crucial, without isolation you will never get away from the expectations of the outside world. Isolation allows for your truth to come through. Even an hour a day by yourself without tv will do wonders. Meditation and journaling are some of my favourite tools when alone.

Some questions for journaling

  • what emotions do I feel most often? What am I thinking/doing when they arise?
  • How do I feel around/in x? (people/place)
  • What was I good at in school?
  • What do I often get complimented for?
  • If I had all the money I need, what would I do?

These answers to these questions are very revealing, try them! Obviously, there are a lot more you can ask but you get the idea.

2. Follow your curiosity

Often insight comes through an idea, you may get a sudden interest in something you weren’t previously, this is your intuition, listen to it. This can lead you to new places/people etc which can lead to knowing which direction to take your life.

3.Consciously Change your environment.

Surrounding yourself with the same environment all the time can prevent something new from coming through. New people, books and places often come with new ideas/insight, this insight can again lead you to know which direction you want to take with your life.

Some life-changing books I highly recommend that have helped me…


Thank you for reading, have a great day and Know your purpose!

Is it weird to have pets?

You ever thought how weird it is how humans are the only species on earth that has pets? Personally, I find it so strange, but not necessarily in a bad way

Obviously, pets have beneficial effects on humans, aside from protection, the main benefit of having pets is the emotional comfort of having one. But why do we seek this from pets?

Could this be an indication of how disconnected we feel from each other that we’d rather seek it from another species?  or is it a commentary on how evolved we are, as to not segregate our love to just our own species? or just how complicated we have made human to human intimate connection?

Humans at the moment are not living in their highest state, at the current rate, a large section of humanity are knowingly destroying the planet. This is the opposite of a ‘civilised’ or an advanced society.

On the other hand, animals are in tune with nature and are living harmoniously with her. A valid case could be made that humans are not the most advanced species on earth. Potentially? Yes, but behaviourally? No

My point here is we have a lot to learn from our animal teachers, our pets.

If you observe pets you can learn a lot

dog worryingPets live in the moment, they live in the NOW

For example, you never see a dog complaining that it’s getting boring catching a ball because it’s getting repetitive. Aside from not being able to speak, it’s because dogs are living in the moment, not in their memories, they’re not filtering reality through their past or worrying about what’s gonna happen next but instead, they’re anchored in the present. They’re demonstrating to us what it means to be mindful, from this perspective, pets are our teachers

Pets also serve humanity in other wonderful ways, in the case of dogs, they encourage exercise, which is particularly useful in the midst of the prevalent sedentary lifestyle.

As for the reverse effects, on the pets themselves…

Some pets are abused or abandoned or both. Most are taken from their natural environment and put into a makeshift one, for birds, its the same as having their wings clipped. Some are taken away from their families. The psychological effects? Just imagine if this happened to you. The effects are particularly strong for aquatic or volant animals as we can never feasibly recreate their natural environment, and still have them as pets.

and of course, some are saved, that would have died otherwise, some find a loving family, and some end up happy


Pets may lack complex thought/reasoning ability but they definitely have a lot they can teach/remind us.

To conclude, I still think it’s weird to have pets, to demonstrate, imagine the roles were reversed

bad person, bad

Why life is standing in your way

life appears to be in your way when you have forgotten that it’s YOU

You think people/bills/exams etc are all against you but they only appear that way because of the energy you give off with your thoughts, emotions, words and actions

To get life to move out of the way, you have to ACCEPT life and SURRENDER to it. Surrendering has a bad rep, often miscued as weakness, but surrendering is the wisest thing you can do.

To ACCEPT is to have no resistance towards life. You are resisting life when you are in-denial, exhibiting escapism behaviour, complaining, worrying, anxious etc

ACCEPTANCE is not only the fastest way to self-love but also the fastest way to get life to move out of your way.  Make sure to fully accept your life situation and not merely acknowledged it

Acknowledgement is simply being aware of the perceived ‘problem’ e.g “I’m unhappy with my body shape\size” Whereas ACCEPTANCE is BEing okay with your body shape/size even as you seek to change it

ACCEPTANCE is surrendering, It’s feeling those negative emotions without trying to suppress or judge them. With this, you are able to learn what your emotions are telling you. This can reveal limiting beliefs you may have or just something you need to know about yourself

When you’re simply in acknowledgement, you’re still living in fear, back to the ‘body shape/size example, in this example you’d be living with anxiety, thinking that everyone (life) is watching you and negatively judging you but that’s just YOU projecting those thoughts onto others

When you SURRENDER you’re no longer in resistance to life. You ACCEPT yourself even if others don’t, you thus no longer have anxiety or worries about people judging you negatively

It’s impossible to ACCEPT life if you judge any part of it as bad or wrong. It’s also impossible if you think there is anything you HAVE to do/be/have.The truth is, you don’t have to do, be or have  anything

When you truly get this, then you can just BE.

What does it mean to BE? It means to be content with life as it IS not as you seek it to be. It means even as you seek to accomplish your goals, you do so without worry/stress/anxiety because you know even if you ‘fail’ it will be okay.

This is true freedom.

3 stages along the way to SURRENDERing

1. Denial, nothing happens, the problem is swept under the rug and you temporarily escape,  You might eat/smoke/work/Netflix etc as a method to escape

2. Acknowledgement. a) you acknowledge the problem but do little to nothing about it, you’ll mainly use one of the above methods to escape instead

b) You do something about it, effectively ‘fixing’ the problem, but while doing so, you’re in resistance to yourself, you condition yourself to believe you have to be a certain way in order for you to love yourself, you teach yourself to love yourself conditionally rather than UNconditionally. You develop a potentially shaky self-esteem and you’re emotionally vulnerable when/if the problem resurfaces

This is also problematic when it comes to things you can’t change, as this puts you at the mercy of external conditions to decide how you feel, which is where your power is not, your power is inside.

3. SURRENDERING. This is BEing, this is no resistance, this is accepting life as it is. This is being okay with the problem, even as you seek to change it. This is basically seeing no problems, only consequences. This can be a difficult place to reach because of what we’ve been conditioned to by the media/culture/parents etc

Remember:  “There is no such thing as right or wrong, there is only that which works and that which doesn’t, based on what you’re trying to do” 

When you truly understand and inner-stand this then you can fully ACCEPT life as it is

but does that mean you’ll be passive? No! ACCEPTING something doesn’t mean choosing it, for e.g you’d accept a speeding ticket if you were driving 100mph on a school road, doesn’t mean you’d choose it

If you find yourself, broke/depressed/ ‘failing’ etc in some way, don’t passively accept this condition, don’t think “this is bad/wrong”. Do what it takes to get where you’d choose to be.  Unless of course, that’s what you’d choose

If you take anything from this post, take this:

There is nothing wrong or bad in the universe

ACCEPTANCE is your golden ticket to freedom

Life gets out of your way when you remember it’s YOU

Who is ‘Fearlessopher’?

I’ve changed so much over the past couple of years. So much, in fact, I no longer feel like the same person, I don’t like the same music, no longer eat the same food or watch the same things etc,  Sometimes I feel like an alien to myself.  It baffles me how the things which used to stimulate me so much no longer do.

This led to an inevitable desire to reinvent myself.  I wanted to be brand new, I wanted to be better than I’d ever been, I wanted to actively optimise and change every aspect of the old me that held me back for too long so I came up with a completely new persona/alter ego – ‘fearlessopher’

Fearless: to become a better version of myself I knew I had to let go of fear. mainly the fear of caring what others think

Philosopher: literal meaning = ‘lover of wisdom/knowledge’

Fearless philosopher‘ used up too many characters on Twitter,  so I merged the two words, thus giving birth to ‘Fearlessopher’

This blog is about documenting my progress/evolution and the things I’m passionate about 🙂

“The purpose of life is to grow/evolve. Life does this via mutation/change. Meaning the only constant in life is change. To resist change is, therefore, also to resist life” – Fearlessopher
