On my way to the theatre last Friday evening I spotted this... a duck...with her homeless owner...on the sidewalk...wearing a collar...in the heart of Downtown, Los Angeles. Apparently she is a comfort animal which makes me wonder: from where, and how does a homeless person acquire a full grown pet duck? 🤔🤷🏾♂️
Kind of wish I could go back a year ago and tell myself DON'T TAKE THAT JOB that I was struggling to decide about on this day in 2016. It was positively hell and I had hives from stress and anxiety more often than not in the five months I worked there. BUT it brought me to this place and I'm so much happier... sometimes the shitty stuff leads to the best stuff AND THAT IS LIFE. 🔥🔥🔥
Reminding myself of Edith Piaf singing Non Regrette Rien right now. "AVEC MES SOUVENIRS J'AI ALLUME LE FEU / WITH MY SOUVENIRS I LIT A FIRE" my favorite line of that song. #queserasera#life#self#learning#grownup#noregrets

"You don't have to sit passively by while life dictates your moods, you can take the wheel and choose to create your life. One thought, one belief, one action at a time. It's your bus you're the driver and you choose where you are going.
IDK George answered, to me it feels like over time everything in your life including life itself makes more and more decisions for you, and before you know it it's not even your life anymore. The government tells me what taxes I have to pay, my bosses order me around at work, my wife tells me what to do at home, I feel imprisoned by a paycheck and responsibilities...
You may not have felt like you had a choice in the past, but starting now you will realize that it's your greatest gift...
No one can choose your attitude but you, said Joy, no one can choose your energy. In fact, smile for me right now sugar.
I'm not asking you now smile."

Since the eclipse I've felt completely undone...like I had turned to goo and leaked out all over the place and couldn't gather enough goo back up to feel like myself again. I experienced breakdowns on all levels. I was beside myself with confusion, emotional unrest and physical pain and discomfort. I finally got to a point last week where it all became too much and there was nothing left to do but surrender. To just live in it, instead of fighting to fix it. Turns out, as soon as I gave up control and attachment to specific outcomes things started to become clearer and my physical symptoms are subsiding. It feels like my goo is reconstituting and starting to resemble something that looks like me again, but not the same old me...a new more attuned version. I leveled up in the game of life, but the game isn't over...🎮
This is exactly how I feel right now! I got the ok to drive, to go back to work, and even to train! This has been a nightmare. I been off work since losing vision in my left eye on 27th of August. After a successful surgery, and recovery, I'm good to go! All you active people out there, try lying on your couch face down for 90% of the day. It blows...
S/O to all the people that visited, called and messaged me... to help keep me from going insane! Hollah!
