Daily affirmation: Live


I went our today having  certain expectations.

Plans didn’t work out at all like they were supposed to.

They worked out so much better though.

The reason I believe that the outcome was so positive is because I didn’t sweat the situation, and just went with it.  Sometimes people don’t have control of their workday and they can’t show up.  I have been there.

I opened myself up to opportunity and reconnected with a friend I hadn’t seen in years and had a great meal and just enjoyed my night.

Why am I writing this?  The message here is simple.  Smile, accept life as it comes.  Fighting it by getting mad and creating a drama, just prevents the opportunity to have another adventure.

My Proust Questionnaire


02_question.jpg

This is the Proust Questionnaire once regarded as a party game where guests would write their answers in a book. Today it is used by Vanity Fair as their final page to ask relevant individuals either featured in the magazine or otherwise to answer. Also there is a version that James Lipton uses in his interviews with movie stars on Inside the Actor’s Studio, on Bravo. I wanted to post it as a way of letting those who are curious get to know me a little better. I would love to have some of my more frequent visitors do it and whether you wish to answer in a comment or in a private email either way feel free to share, or just read and think about your answers.
