The Opportunity of Heartbreak

Loneliness. Sadness. Bouts of depression. This shit sucks. My first ever long-term committed relationship. Almost 2 1/2 years. Why have I been such a veritable wreck? And then it hit me: I can rebuild from the ground up. There is a brand new space in my life. Yes, there is emptiness. And until this moment, I…

Wizards Live Life Backwards

A few years ago, I read a book that rocked my world: The Way of the Wizard, by Deepak Chopra. It’s a small book with a powerful message: you gotta BELIEVE it before you can SEE it. It’s totally the reverse of how we normally view life (and counter-intuitive). Of course, he’s not the first to write…

MY FAULTY FOUNDATION

Every General Contractor knows it. If the foundation isn’t good, the house will be no good. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but eventually. A bad foundation will not support the home upon which it is built. The same principle holds true for relationships. If the foundation is bad, the relationship cannot stand–or withstand–the test of time. I…

My Stink

Tonight, I write. No real major teaching. No date to review. I feel deflated. Kicked around like a bottle in the street. That pit in your stomach that doesn’t want to go away– of sadness. Tremendous sadness. (And, truthfully… I’m not sure that I want it to go away.) The kind of stuff that I…

Despicable Me

I’m rotten. I almost labeled this, The Breaker-Upper, but I knew that you’d be 100x more likely to click on this blog if I called it, Despicable Me. But am I really that despicable? Of course, not (said in a Louis C.K. voice). Of course, not. (See clip here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0O5h4enjrHw) Why would I even possibly consider myself despicable? Well,…

Tinder Date

I was on a date tonight off of Tinder. It was only my second Tinder date. “Date” may be too formal a word. It was more of a hang-out. Yes, there was some flirting beforehand. Nothing major, though. Let’s just say that a message I sent her using the audio-to-text feature created an interesting variation of “my…

The Journey from Loneliness to Aloneness

It was my birthday. I was spending time with my then girlfriend. We were walking the belt-line in Atlanta on a hot April afternoon. Who knows what went wrong, but she wasn’t happy. We stopped at a Starbucks so she could use the bathroom. I waited outside on one of those cushiony chairs. She came…
