Porn and Prozac

What’s keeping you from following your heart?
What’s keeping you from making the changes you feel are necessary for your personal growth and evolution?

What are you afraid of…
Not being accepted? Being judged? Not being loved? Lack of security? Change? The unknown? Damnation maybe?
Being concerned about the people around you is honorable. Realizing that life is all about  more than just you is wise. However, stuffing your passions, hiding from your purpose, and running from your truth will kill you.

This line from Hamlet says it best:

“To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man [or woman].”

Doing what is best for you, while being brave enough to be honest about it, is the truest form of love.

Can we all please come out of the f*cking closet already.
Generations of people being forced to hide from their truth has led us to an age of self-medication and addiction. I am not talking about if you are Gay, Straight, Lesbian, Bi, Transgender because I really do not care. Go and be happy. Find some one who makes you laugh and fulfills you. We are too often all surrounded by unhealthy and depressed humans who, if asked, probably couldn’t tell you what they want or who they really are or what makes them happy. Do you think it’s because they really don’t know, or because they’ve been told that it’s not safe or acceptable to let that person be seen or to tell someone what makes them happy?

I have worked with a few people who are happiest when they are unhappy. Who seem to have a need to find something to complain about. It is draining. Is it so hard to just step back and marvel at a sunrise with out complaining that it comes too early in the day (well- earlier in most places. I am currently in Iceland where the sun today will rise at 11:12!)

We are living in a world where porn and prozac are now considered acceptable treatments for taming our wild nature.
I think the only solution to this problem is to question EVERYTHING. Look at what you’ve been taught and what you’ve seen and allow yourself to question if any of it is even real. Look at the world you’ve created and ask yourself: “Is this the life I want?” If the answer is not “yes, yes and yes”, then be brave enough to change it!
Don’t let fear tame you!
