The Way We Were

Okay, voice or no voice, we need to sing at the top of our voices just like Barbara Streisand, even if we don’t sound like her.

When we reminisce about a relationship we never really had, except with ourselves in our minds, we need to let go and be honest with ourselves. Our excuses for the wanker just don’t cut it. Hey, they leave us undermined and diminished.

But no more.

I was going to wait until the new year to relaunch The Wanker Diaries, but the early bird catches the worm.

We need to let go of the fallacies that we have made unhappy truths in our lives.

By living in the past or the future we miss the present. I know a lot of us read business and self help books looking for direction outside when our direction is already inside of us. We just need to find the calm so we can hear our inner voice and trust it, then follow it.

I came up with a new sense of self today for The Wanker Diaries.
Help Your Self.
No thing on this site is “self help.” Unless you are the Dali Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh or someone of at caliber you cannot begin to give anyone advice.

I know we look in all the wrong places for advice and direction but we don’t need to. Silence the mind and you will find what is lacking in your life. It might be a relationship, it might be career orientated, financial. Whatever you think you need, you will find it by discovering yourself. En you can get help to hone the skills you need.

According to the Buddha, life is suffering but there is a way to end suffering.

I am on this journey into myself. I do not have any answers but I have an inquiring mind and I don’t like putting up with crap. I am learning borders and after a year of working on The Wanker Diaries, I have found my voice.

Join me, get on board the quest to find your voice.

That relationship you clung to that caused you so much grief doesn’t have to stay that way. It may evolve or it may disappear. It will hurt no matter what. The difference is the light at the end of the tunnel.
