Keto supporters might hate hearing this but for the last month and a half I’ve been eating plenty of bread and potatoes, and I’ve lost ten pounds.
I have never been on a mindful weight loss journey nor have I been a dieter. However, Covid helped me put on a few pounds that seemed to be more stubborn than a five-year-old who doesn’t want to eat his mushrooms.
Trust me, I wanted Keto to be my guiding light because who doesn’t want permission to eat more fat? …
You know those movies where people feel a deep inner calling to go find themselves?
Like in the movie Eat Pray Love, the woman embarks on a soul-searching journey around the world to figure out exactly who she is, what drives her, and what she truly wants out of life.
Or like in the movie Lion, where a man was adopted as a small child in India and feels compelled to go find his roots and figure out his life story.
I wonder how many of us have best-selling novels and movie scripts inside our hearts and minds, waiting to appear as words on actual pages. Pages that readers can’t stop turning. …
The earnings of athletes are really none of my business until news media makes it everyone’s business.
Right now, today, I’m talking about Evander Kane and his $49M contract to play hockey with the San Jose Sharks. Yes, I said Million. 49 of them. And if the news reports are accurate that salary pays for him to work just 82 days in a typical hockey season.
“A typical season includes 82 regular season games. The current season has 56 games scheduled (due to Covid)” — Courtesy of Sportsnet.ca
I’d do just about anything for 82 days to get $49 Million.
Why am I talking about Evander Kane right now? Because he is currently filing for bankruptcy at the ripe old age of twenty-nine and he isn’t alone. …
Every once in a while I read a single line in a single story and it will trigger an entire thought process. I have trouble putting my thoughts into words lately, especially when the thought feels abstract, but let me try.
Have you ever considered that where you are means absolutely nothing to billions of people? I don’t mean where you’re at in life but where you physically are as a dot on the globe.
As a lover of travel, I have mostly chosen to blaze the trails alone. Each time I embark on a solo adventure my soul nearly explodes with anticipation of the unknown, and a little bit of adrenaline. …
I don’t understand the platform at all. I had to publicly ask on Twitter how to even find people to follow over there. Now I follow Kim McKinney too, because she answered my Twitter post.
Those are the only three writers I know that I could find and even if I found more of you, I wouldn’t read you over there because you write here.
News Break is like a labyrinth to me, I’m not joking…I have no idea how to use it except to copy and paste previously published articles. …
Call this a plug for myself or call it straight up ‘crazy mother,’ but I’m now writing here on Medium, as a boy. Not just any boy, but the coolest boy I’ve ever known.
Over the past few months I’ve struggled really hard with finding inspiration to write. The only stories I seem to be able to come up with are about death…obviously. It is consuming me at the moment.
So, I gave into it and stopped pressuring myself. …
Humans are complicated creatures. We can never just look something in the face, see it for what it is, and make a choice. We have to analyze the crap out of everything before making a single move, often keeping ourselves paralyzed.
Are you too complicated to make it work or would this be an easy choice for you?
You are guaranteed $50,000 one month from today, to use and spend however you like.
Could you make this work within a month’s time? …
It’s official. I have climbed onto the pedestal of, “I’m better than the rest of the people because I have a dog.”
There are plenty of dog owners who like their dogs enough to feed them and throw a ball. Then there are those of us who love our dogs more than the air we breathe and would rather not make time for humans anymore.
I knew it had become official when I’d go into work and ignore everyone while making a beeline toward the other guy who lives and breathes for his dog.
How do I know he lives for his dog? Because he doesn’t want kids. Instead he throws birthday “paw-ties” for his golden retriever, Louie. My dog is only nine months old, I haven’t had any paw-ties…yet. …
Christmas is one big bundle of obligation at the best of times. Add 2020 into the mix and we have one magnificent ball of clusterfuckery.
We’re all trying to figure out how to make this holiday season as normal as possible when we know that normal doesn’t exist right now. Let’s not pretend that millions of people haven’t lost jobs, livelihoods, and loved ones this year.
Instead, let’s call it like we see it and admit that nobody’s Christmas will be as merry as it usually is. …
I feel like very few people in their forties have budgeted for death. It probably hasn’t even crossed their minds, never mind entered their monthly financial spreadsheet. Least of all during a pandemic when you may have been laid off from the same job twice in the one year. *Raises hand*
Nobody in the prime of their life has a jar full of change under their bed labeled, “In case someone dies, use this.”
It’s kind of sick to even touch on this subject but having very recently been on the butt end of ‘the cost of death’, it has blown my mind how expensive it is. …
