How Anxiety robs us of more than just the present moment
Many things can rob us of the future. To understand first that the future isn’t owed to us, it isn’t a given, it isn’t expected, it isn’t certain, and often it can sure as hell be scary.

Growing a business in the age of social media. Part 1.
You’re a writer. A good one, maybe even dare you to think a great one. You have a ton of ideas, poems been writing for years, maybe a story or two. All this time hiding your craft in a box under the bed. But now you’re ready to come out of your shell. You see so many people on Medium, with blogs, using Instagram, and think to yourself: I’m going to do this too.
It’s a chaotic ecosystem, the WWW. Growing up having a computer my whole life- it’s…
just to start writing
Rejection after rejection. We’ve all been there. Everyone has a story, but sometimes the words fall short…….. of other people's expectations.
Remember the phrase,

This poem can be read forward and backward. It’s about a father and son reuniting after decades. Son forward- father in reverse.
A true story about meeting my father after almost twenty years of no communication.
Then, there was a pause.
I was confused.
I stood there waiting for an answer.
Something to grasp in the dark.
But here we were.
At the end of maybe the beginning.
I needed to be careful with my heart.
I needed to eat.
This I knew.
But I was hungry. I was fucking starving.
I don’t know if that is ever going to change.

How to not ruin your life by “just” living from a Combat Veteran.
It would be lazy of me to start this with a definition of “Complacency,” Like many of the articles on Medium, I would be almost contractually obligated to do so- except there is no contract, yet we all do it. Instead, I’m not going to start this with a definition of complacency and instead start with a Contentment description.
And that is no short task. Describing what being content means. Contentment to each of us could mean a variety of things. We could be content with our…
How to live- the day before you die.
It’s funny how time changes things. For so many years I tried to forget things, thinking that if I only forgot- I could move on. And now all I’m trying to do is remember. I wish someone told me back then that you can’t unsee things, you can’t unhear things and most importantly you can’t unfeel things.
