Currently biking around the world

Posts will happen significantly less often for a while as I am currently focused on biking around the world.

It could be a few months between posts or it could be a few years. I will almost certainly return to this blog one day. In the meantime, enjoy what's already been posted, or read about my travels here.


Ideas


Added as I come across them, these are my ideas for living a better life.
(they're really more like guidelines, but such a lengthy word wouldn't look good in the navbar)

- You are entitled to feel however you feel. No matter what anybody says, that can never be taken away from you. And I almost guarantee there are other people who feel the same way, even if they never talk about it (the purpose of this blog is to talk about it).

- Allow the space between where you are and where you want to be to inspire you, not terrify you.

- Action creates purpose.

- Respect yourself.

- Respect others.

- It's okay to be angry for a while, but anger is a sign of something more -- usually misunderstanding, fear, or loss of control.

- We struggle to move forward without sympathy for our antagonists. This doesn't mean we have to reach out to them or continue to have them in our lives; but, everybody has a story and everybody has crap to deal with. We are all human. Be angry for a while. Then be forgiving.

- We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us so that we become increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us and make us kinder. You always have the choice. (Dalai Lama)
