I recently listened to the audiobook Abundance. They key takeaway from this book is that things are not as bad as they seem. Lately I have been following others in believing that something bad is going to happen in the near future having to do with the government doing something negative or society taking a hit or collapsing. The book helped me to realize that we have built in biases that lead us to believe something bad is going to happen. These biased are hardwired into us to help protect…read more
Lately I have been moving away from the personal development world because I have found a lot of the messages are repeated and I am in search of new information. Also I realize I like to chase money and it adds extra stress to my life and since a lot of the personal development world talks about money and starting businesses I realize I need to step away.

The great part is that I began to learn the basics of cooking and became more comfortable around the kitchen. All the while that idea was germinating in my head. One of…read more
This one takes concentration to straighten out my legs while they are parallel to the floor.
This was my third try at soda bread. Soda bread is easier and faster to make than regular bread since it requires no kneading and no time to rise. Actually the hard part is getting it put together fast enough. When I made my first one I thought I did it wrong since it looked ugly. Actually, it looked like it should have. Here are some of the videos I used to make sure I was doing it right: The first soda bread I made was with all white…read more
This is the proper way to open champagne without shooting the cork and spraying it everywhere.
I am pretty pumped that I can do this. It was a bit intimidating going back on my hands the first time.
Workout at Home- Hanging Knee Raises
This one took me a bit to figure out until I found some videos inline which showed the person contorting their body to complete the pushup. If not then you will be unable to balance well. Though, I realize I still need to work on my form.
I finally Made it to this point.
Be careful not to come down too hard on your head but be sure to touch it to the ground.
http://intentionalsuperhero.com/ Don’t be like me, I did not realize that I was kipping my knees to make the move easier. Also, this angle makes it more obvious that I am going bald.
Looks like I am becoming a breakdancer.
This one is not too bad.
This is when it gets exciting. When you get to this step you start to see what the full stand to stand bridge is going to be like.
This is the full back bridge. This one is great for stretching your back and helping with digestion.
I cut out the part of the video of me falling off the ball. Though, this one is pretty easy.
