Condolences go out to the family’s of Erin Youngbar and Tyler Morris.


Erin and Josh’s 3 kids.

One of my best friends Tyler Morris, his stepfather Josh, his wife Emily, and their son Bradley.

One of my best friends Tyler, his father-in-law Josh, his wife Emily, and their son Bradley.  Tyler unexpectedly passed away of unknown complications to the brain.

As I sit here in the same room that I have called home for the past 3 years of my life.  I am reminded of many different things… Mainly that life on this planet is short.  Very short.

In light of recent events over the past few weeks, 2 in particular, I have contemplated my life more than usual.  Which is a lot because I think way too often to begin with.

For the past 3 years I have dreamed of waking up one morning and changing my life.  Literally doing all of the things I have been too afraid to do.  Working on my internet business more, taking my dieting more seriously, being more open minded to ideas and events of the world, learning Spanish (which makes no sense since I will be traveling to Asia… but Spanish will come in handy in 2015), along with a multitude of other things.

I know that almost everyone reading this has goals in life that they have wanted to accomplish, yet have been too afraid to go after.  Which brings me to the question I have asked myself every single day for the past 3 years.

If people, including myself, have the option to wake up today… right this moment… and make a drastic lifelong change in their lives… why don’t they?

Seriously, for over 1,000 days I have been aware that I have the ability to drastically change my life in an instant.  But why haven’t I?

This question has bothered me more than any other since moving back home from South Carolina.  But more so than ever tonight.

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

The Buddhist philosophy of mindfulness is not a religion, but more of a way to perceive reality.  It has become an interest of mine over the recent months, and is my next big challenge in personal growth.

It makes sense that the best possible way to take advantage of life, to accomplish the things that I want to accomplish, is simply to live each moment fully… completely aware of the present moment.

Sounds easy enough doesn’t it?  So why is it so hard.

As you read this I encourage you to question your current “pace” in life.  Are you taking advantage of every day given to you? Whether you believe it is a gift from God or rather a course of mathematical luck…

Are you living in the present moment of reality?


P.S.  I am reminded of this article:

Because change is scary. I think as a whole people have become content with their lives even if it hasn’t turned out the way they imagined. It’s a lot easier to survive in the mundane than to risk failure in taking a chance. Everyone plays the What If game and more than not scare themselves out of decisions when considering even minor changes. Why even bother with major ones when something whether it be finances, family, friends, etc. will convince you a change isn’t worth it? Also to live in the present requires you to consider the past and if you learn from past mistakes one failure, even a small, one could keep you from making the leap to a possible better future.

    That’s right JD. Change is very scary. We are creatures of habit and it can be very hard to break the habit. People are afraid to fail, but the problem is that failure is the only way to achieve success.
