Life's simple little lessons.

MARCH 12, 2011



In my quest to figure out this thing called life and try to organize my thoughts, I started to blog. In my search for worthy topics I came across Alex Noriega. I love his stuff!

It's simple, to the point and delivers a message that makes you think! Most importantly it makes you get over yourself. This for me, is an integral part of growing up and generally coping with life, we are the key to our own demise and our success.

I truly love simple things, sometimes I simplify things to a degree that can be hurtful to others however that is never on purpose. It is because I can be so innocently oblivious. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that those who know me well find it infuriating and endearing at the same time. You really can't stay mad at someone who at the time just didn't know any better. Sometimes I am that person, the one that just has to stick their foot in their mouth!

I think we all have our "Oh shit! I didn't know any better" moments. I have an analytical mind which almost always reaches for the solution. I forget that people don't always need a solution, sometimes they just need a friend to lean on. I say almost always because when emotions are involved, that's where things get complicated, my mind goes foggy, I get lost, and a solution - forget it! There is no logic in emotion, emotion is erratic, irrational and from my experience it is impossible to analyze! You can spend days trying to analyze things in your head, with no change in how you actually feel about it.

I have been described by some as the simplest most complicated person they've ever met. I can't say I disagree with that statement. Getting to know me is not the easiest task one can take on! I have to be allowed to do it on my terms, at least to some degree. I don't trust easily, and I am terrified of getting hurt. I can be stubborn, emotionally unattached, and sometimes annoyingly dominating.

Those who are patient eventually see something different. I am honest. I am blindly loyal. I am generous with my time and my possessions. I would do almost anything to lift the spirits of someone dear to me. Most importantly I'm not as strong as I pretend to be.

I am truly grateful for the people in my life who have the patience and the love to deal with me. It's not always easy, but I can only hope that they think it's worth it. 

Now in order to sound profound, I'm going to hand it over to Alex Noriega. Here's some of my favorites because for one, I whole-heartedly agree with them. Two he's made simplistic truths into art and made me laugh. I think that's awesome!
