being dismissed … things that irk

There is a feeling of discomfort that comes with being dismissed as “new-agey” “hippy-dippy” etc. Someone on my Facebook feed posted this article: New Age Roommate Has A Crystal For That Which promptly got a series of likes from dudes, and “LOL” type comments. Being that the comments were from dudes and this article was about a lady, I am questioning how much of the … Continue reading being dismissed … things that irk

a fire inside

“Will the flood behind me, put out the fire inside me?” No music seems to contemplate the eternal struggles of my existence so much as that by AFI. I have felt this so deeply, so many times. Feeling everything so deeply, in fact, that you wonder if it will swallow you whole and you’ll just cease to exist? Will the vast mass of tedious and … Continue reading a fire inside

on staying wild and true

Like many introverts, my inner world is deep and well developed. I see myself as that person. I think that others see glimpses of me.

In trying to understand how to approach the situation, I was reading some stuff about personality types and came across this article… http://www.personalityhacker.com/infp-vs-infj/ It discusses how INFP’s use the … Continue reading INFP-ing

Dreams

I’ve always thought it’s pretty amazing that if babies have a boring day, that they will dream interesting and stimulating things to make up for it. Just because the world isn’t providing them with what they need for development, doesn’t mean the brain is going to create it itself. Our subconscious minds are incredibly powerful. Also, think about the potential behind that concept, our minds … Continue reading Dreams
