LIFE: Two Mind-Altering Concepts You Aren't Ready For

I read and listen to a lot of great stuff on a daily basis— from various blogs, instagram accounts, TED Talks, podcasts, and more— there is certainly no shortage of exceptionally great content coming at me all day and all week long.

I keep a running note on my computer of quotes and highlights from the things I read and listen to, but occasionally, I read or hear something so powerful that I don’t even need to write it down. 

It’s that type of thing that shakes you deep down, the same kind of thing that you didn’t know you needed to hear, yet it fits perfectly in a gap inside your mind or heart, as if it were intentionally made to be heard by you.

That happened to me on 2 occasions over the past 2 weeks, and I’ve been chewing on these 2 thoughts the way you have to chew on Milk Duds. 

And they’re exactly like that: sticky, thick, and delicious. They’re at the forefront of my mind at almost every encounter and thought I have. I feel like a scientist who just discovered a phenomena for the first time and can’t stop observing it in nature.

I was going to write this big long post about these life-changing, track-stopping concepts I read last week, and I was going to tell you what they mean to me and why they’ve completely disrupted my way of thinking, but I decided not to do that literally as I was typing this post.

Instead, I’m going to share the 2 thoughts with you and let you process them and connect with them in your own way. 

You probably won’t have the same epiphanies as I had, as you’re not reading them in the context I read them in, nor are we the same people needing the same types of epiphanies.

However, I have no doubt that if you dare to chew on these ideas for a couple days, you’ll pull some nourishment from them in your own ways.

The first is one that hit me like a freight train, and from a place of fear and shame, I pushed back on it really hard.
The second one has been a heavy dose of taking responsibility for myself & my actions, and I bet 90% of people
a) won’t like it and
b) won’t accept it.

I only want you to know what these 2 mind-altering concepts are if you’re ready, willing & able to digest them. That’s how serious this is to me.

So click below if you’re ready to make a mental shift, and I’ll be back sooner than usual to dig into these a little more.
