Healthy pressure makes diamonds
I’ve been daily documenting (journaling) for over 20 years. I’ve decided to start posting them here everyday, from the previous day. This is how my brain works. My journals could offend you, inspire you, or just make you laugh. Let's find out.

172 Days. Healthy pressure is on!

Woke up at 2:00a this morning. Feeling driven in my purpose. My Inner GOD is alive.

Momentum makes decision feel more safe. If I’m not in aligned action, decisions feel cloudy. When I’m actually doing something, decisions and next steps become more clear.

And I understand that sometimes the doing that’s required in sitting still, breathing, and being quiet.

Building up my ability to fast again. Going without food for extended periods of time gives me the kind of clarity that only an empty stomach can provide. Empty stomach, full spirit.

3 days into the build up process that I’ve used for 10 years.

Happy Birthday to our youngest daughter Janae. She turns 20 today.

She’s turning into an amazing young Queen.

  • Where it comes from
  • The only kind of power that matters

A Mini-Essay on Dramatizing

  • A need for something to be more than it actually is, for your own unhealthy ego

A Mini-Essay on Adversity

  • it’s mandatory
  • make it intentional (think different on this one)

A Mini-Essay on Punctuality

A Mini-Essay on Society

  • it’s upside down
  • it’s dangerously deceiving, yet blatantly obvious
  • it’s ripe with powerful opportunity for the ones who choose their personal freedoms

Feeling annoyed by the number of people that asked me about my experience in Alaska, but before I can even finish talking about the first part, they are onto interrupting and interjecting their own experience of something in their life.

  • People love to talk about themselves
  • I’m doing the personal work to see if I’m behaving in this way because that’s where it gets corrected first

Just hit a big workout with my new brother Mo. Great conversations in the process. I’m interested in finding out more about his unique story. I’ll invite him onto The Committed Man Podcast.
