So here I am blogging again. It’s been years and yet suddenly something compelled me to write again. From my phone at the moment, believe it or not. It’s been years since I’ve written a blog, and the last time I consistently blogged was probably around 2009. I had finished high school and started working retail and discussed my daily life and my deepest thoughts.
Here we are a decade later and dare I say a decade older. When you spend most of your day working that’s where most stuff happens to you. The problem is that with privacy acts, HIPAA violations, and the overwhelming possibility of getting fired, you can’t really talk about work.
My thoughts, on the other hand, are up for grabs. I’ve usually got a million thoughts a day, if not more.
So grab a chair and get comfortable. It’s going to be a crazy ride.
I have been described many ways by many people, the consensus seems to be positive though. I woo complete strangers almost constantly.
I’ve been called the life of the party. I’ve in fact had events canceled because I wasn’t going. Yet I don’t see myself as that.
Most people who have met me, will tell you they think I’m great in some variation or another. Complete strangers will tell me their life story or even hug me. I’m the kind of guy whose befriended every cashier, server, and customer I’ve ever met.
My point is it’s because I understand life. I’m only 30 but I think I’ve got a better understanding of this thing we call life. I can get along with a 17 year old thug girl and the 60 year old doctor. My friends range from the age of 6 to about 102. I can relate to the 30 year old Christian Latina that works in insurance just as much as I did to the 28 year old wiccan gay guy who sells fruit.
Because there’s no difference.
No matter who you are, what you do, what you look like or what you’ve been through, you are not alone. I promise you that.
In fact I’m dedicating my first blog to these two concepts:
1.) There’s more in common with us than there is different.
2.)You’re not alone in anything.
I’ve been through some shit and I’ve known people who’ve gone through the same or sometimes worse. I am an empath so even if I’ve never experienced it myself I can understand it completely. I always try to see things through your eyes.
Not many people do. So when you try to understand someone you automatically get to know them better.
I work with some very angry people that no one can seem to deal with and yet I never have an issue with them. My ability to diffuse situations and meditate is incredible. Because I understand. So i’m going to try to teach you how to understand.
Or maybe you’re someone like me who already understands and it’s just nice to know you’re not alone out there.
I’m giving you very easy homework for after you finish reading today’s blog. I want you to force the biggest smile you can, and I want you to hold it for 10 excruciating Mississippis. Then see how you feel.
Also, everytime I write again I can’t help but thank Maureen. My biggest blog fan for decades and someone who truly understands. Thank you for making me Mister Magnifico.
