Day 13, WC 

What are you excited about? 

I’m a gamer dad, so the most exciting thing for me right now would have to be the Nintendo Switch and Breath of the Wind.

Being a very avid Final Fantasy fan, I’ve always loved Legend of Zelda. Now, Breath of the Wind is an open world rpg. Like Elder Scrolls series, but the map seems to be a lot more massive. 

The Switch is also exciting, because not only can you play your games at home, but it also has the portability to take your game anywhere you go. It’s advanced even for its time. Even though the Vita has remote play, it’s just not the same. Since you have to have WiFi in order for it to work. However, the switch, you actually take the system with you. It’s strange, weird, and I love it. 

Day 10, WC

Write about something you feel strongly about.

I am all for everyone being treated the same and having laws that reflect a sense of equality. However, equality is a myth and can never happen 100% and is a waste of time trying to achieve it. Forcing people into acceptance is not right nor a form of equality. 

Some things are more important than our own personal needs or interests. And such notions are not for the federal government to be concerned with. Start with the states, give the power back to the states, ask them to make the difference. 

Asking the federal government to help only gives them the power to control your life. You should be able to take responsibility and be responsible for your own actions, and make the right decisions for your own life. No one else should be able to tell you how to live your life. 

Keep government small and out of our lives.

Post some words of wisdom that speak to you.

Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today.” James Dean

I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think.” Socrates 

True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing.” Socrates 

Employ your time in improving yourself by other men’s writings, so that you shall gain easily what others have labored hard for.” Socrates 

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” MLK Jr.

Forgiveness is not an occasional act, it is a constant attitude.” MLK Jr.

You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.” The Buddha

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” The Buddha 

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.” The Buddha 

There are many more, but these are my favorites. 

Day 8, WC

Share something you struggle with.

I feel the biggest thing I struggle with is over thinking. It can be to the point where I drive myself crazy. I’ve even made up scenarios that never happened nor would ever happen.

Although, I’ve learned a lot about myself by over thinking. It has made me research many things, and I’ve even found peace in meditation and yoga. Even turning to Buddhism has helped tremendously. 

I’ve read many books by Thích Nhât Hąnh. His words have inspired me to turn to the present moment by catching myself everything I start to over think and bring myself back to the present moment. Even his meditation style is unique and calming.

Even though this doesn’t stop nor eliminate the over thinking, it does help control it. Some ways it has helped me in my writing, and even drawing conclusions in certain situations. I am able, now, to control it more so than before.
