Happy clouds

Flow state: A moment filled with that special energy of getting so much done with little effort (being in the zone), much like I imagine it looked like when God made clouds, or how it does look when Bob Ross paints them.

I, like most who experience a flow state, want to have the flow as much as possible, and I pursue it in ways to try to create the energy every day.  Because we are humans the flow state doesn't come to us everyday, even if we try all of our rituals, tricks, & routines. What trips me up is, having so many thoughts and ideas in my head that I just want to do them all, that even if I'm going against that current, damnit I still want to accomplish my tasks.

Recently I discovered that on days where the flow isn't there and I'm trudging against the current to get things done, I'm frustrated, anxious, and exhausted. I don't know why it actually took me this long to understand the frustrated periods. Watching Steve champion through the last 5 years, I've learned 3 important things from him (really 300,000 but there's no room for all of that), 1. Take advantage of the good days. 2. Live and enjoy every moment, even if it's not what you wanted that day, you take it and make the very damn best of it. 3. Really there's so many more important things in life, than to worry about taking a day off here and there.

Here's where I caution people, please do not tell me the cliche, "Slow down, you have time."

No I don't.  Neither do you.  Stop telling everyone we have time.  We don't.

If we did I wouldn't wake up praying that I get another day with Steve every single day, innocent people wouldn't get murdered, the earth wouldn't be rapidly warming up while people stand around acting like they can't do a damn thing about it.

We don't have time.  So naturally I don't want to waste it, but having the discernment to know how to take the ebs and flows and truly live in whatever moment life is presenting fully and openly, and making the best of them, adds some hours-days-weeks to the clock.

So what we have is choice to use our time wisely.  Not time. Choice to pursue the flow, accept the changing winds, and to really show up everyday no matter what it presents you with.

  1. Hey guys my wife and I have been married for 15 years. For over five years I have been dealing with jealousy issues because of flirting and her having emotional type affairs with other men. I felt like my masculinity was in question and if I said the way she was acting bothered me, it seemed to make matters worse or I was accused of being controling. During this period I did state I wanted a divorce if the behavior was not going to end: texting men a night, leaving for the weekend without letting me know where she was going or not responding to messages. We do have a son and basically it's been him and I for the last year on the weekends. She disconnected completely from being a good wife and mother. In April she said she wanted a separation and I said no we need to get into marriage counseling. We did try that, but she was not very responsive and didn't give any effort. Afterward she was adamant about separation and divorce. I continued to say no and that we needed to save our family. She presented a separation agreement and I had to hire a lawyer. Because of the above behavior my lawyer suggested a private investigator. The investigator discovered my wife was having an affair with a close friend of the family who also is married with children. We know the extended families. I feel like I should tell this man's wife about what happened. This adultery has devastated me emotionally, I feel betrayed and I'm physically drained. I know my wife is passionate in terms of her sexuality, and I can't get the thought of them out of my head. It makes me question my own manhood, and I feel very inferior or that he must be a better lover or what ever. The problem is my wife pursued him. She would go to him and she lured him into this adultery. I felt this was coming for some time and could not stop it. She was not only lying to me but also to our son about what she was doing and where she was going. My family is important, my son loves her and as crazy as it sounds so do I. Can you respond with a course of action on how to proceed? I was still have a very huge place in my heart for her. so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my wife came to me and apologized for the wrongs she did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I, my son and my wife are living together happily again..
