Don’t let life make you what you hate
If actions speak louder than words and a picture is worth a thousand… does it help anyone see what you’re saying when you communicate without them?
Sometimes, no matter how loud you shout, you won’t be heard. Actions can be misinterpreted, and pictures don’t always tell the true story. Only you can tell the truth of the tale, and at times pain of truth hurts, deeper than you think you can bear. Face it and start a fresh chapter.
For far too many, the end looks brighter than the darkness in their means to get there; Life is not easy, happy can be very hard to find; Loneliness happens in a crowd of family or friends, as easily as it would on a deserted island.
When you end your own story, it does not end; Others will finish writing it for you and not in the way you felt it. No matter how far you fall or how high you fly, you can’t hide from yourself. Only you can can write the next chapter in your story; the way YOU WOULD WANT IT READ!
Everyone knows someone who suffers from unspoken pains. Addictions come in as many flavors as ice cream; mental health issues number higher than TIME and LIFE magazine combined. If you can’t make them hear you, show them what you mean it in any way they will listen. Only when the absolute truth can be seen can the healing begin; excuses can start from real reasons and reasons become an excuse. When you love someone enough to risk anything to help them, do not let them suffer in silence; when you see them scream, see what they are saying. When the truth hurts so bad you cannot face it, do not turn away, accept it and help shoulder the burden, even if it makes them hate you for daring to help. When you are up on the edge for so long you can’t find the way down, or in the darkness long enough you can’t remember light; know the deepest darkness is broken by even the smallest spark and that over the edge, or on rock bottom, it’s not too late to plant your feet and follow a new path.
I AM NOT ALONE ; YOU ARE NOT ALONE
THEY ARE NOT ALONE ; WE ARE NOT ALONE
If you are reading this, your story just began; make it an adventure you WANT TO remember.
… AND …
The loudest screams are seldom seen… Sometimes you need a picture to make the point #semicolon #everyoneknowssomeone #addiction #drugs #suicide #mentalillness #depression #419 #420 #socialgood #loveislove #yourstoryisntoveryet #seatacinc #semicolonproject #done #liveyouradventure #semicolonproject416 #projectsemicolon #projectsemicolon416
For those who understand the reason why; I hope you can understand what I am saying, I love you
So I was joking around with Alexis from reddit the other day and…
Ok so, if you know me, #IRL not just online, know I have lots of these tales…
That one time online, not at band camp…
I was being a wiseguy poking at an entrepreneurial startup technoratzi bear.
My faith was restored refreshed yet anew.
The founder of reddit poked back, like a real boy, no string on he!
Just when I forgot even the icons are geeks like us…
I get another #CoolStoryBro to add with #IRLOT collection.
So now as a professional #SMDB I could claim…
“Yeah, I talk with Alexis Ohanian and we bs on Facebook n stuff, no biggie”
or like the wandering new media minstrel that I am…
“Anyone can be real and remain involved online, just look at Alexis Ohanian”
… and yes, I realize, especially to those who have been tortured by my unraveling rambles. They may sound like tall tales. Perhaps, that is why I have had the pleasure, of innumerable interactions with those most would never believe. I know we are just people and stay human, not overreact. You see, this isn’t a guru pointing me out or anointing me with blessed social magic dust, it was a friendly face in the crowd who chuckled. The point being, online not everything is a big deal, but what otherwise couldn’t be, can be. In human speak, what I mean is, you can be just you freely.
Online this applies to any and everyone who isn’t anti-social or an outright #TROLL. From the top politicians to the new hire in the mail room, the ultra-famous to the recently plugged in, some other impressive stereotype to some other weak belittlement of a job title, we can all have a casual conversation. The only catch really isn’t, even though for most it is. You have to relax, just be yourself and keep it casual because it’s no big deal. That is after all the beauty in social media today for the mass adoption wave this century. Not only can you see what you’re interested in but, you can interact directly with the source. If you keep calm and carry on, you never know who may say something out of the blue. Yet if you #fanboy out and socialize with stress… you may as well go watch YouTube, because it just and cool dude.
Now, to put this in clear, honest perspective. INSTAGRAM LINK
I DID IT AGAIN!!!
I killed my website and I did it on purpose. To be honest, I rather enjoyed it and will probably do it again, again. Bring on the erasers, it’s do over time!
Why? Well, I get bored and it’s my site so I’ll try what I want to, You would try too if this happened to you… and now that the silly songs and singing is out of my head, I’ll make it make some sense.
Technology changes, the internet evolves. IMHO if you do not, you die cherche viagra suisse. Just as a flowing stream keeps life going and a still pond rots away… content online, does the same. So, once again the whiteboard is blank, my website design is plain. We will see where the creative adventure takes us and hopefully admire what’s here if anything remains.
HTML5 here we come, CSS3 lets go play, mobile first, device friendly, editors loaded up up and away!
Hi, this is my new homepage.
It used to be different but I was tired of it.
Now I am experimenting in code while creating a new design.
More oft than not, this works out just great, with little to no mistakes.
In the end my friends I cannot tell a lie… Sometimes I decide to change it up and just DO IT LIVE!
I won’t predict what’s about to happen. I’ve no clue what will be seen. I think that’s why I did it. For some reason this amuses me…
