The high-tech slick brick of the self-help industry

I remember way back in 2013 when I was living in Thailand, I didn’t want an iPhone.. or hell, even a smart phone. No thank you 🙅‍♂️ I was perfectly happy with my $20 brick of a phone. It received calls and text messages and that was all I wanted. I absolutely did NOT want … Continue reading

The REAL reason you can’t stop thinking

I remember it like it was yesterday. I was in Thailand at the time. Chiang Mai to be exact (aka. Northern Thailand… the foothills of the Himalayas). Luscious jungles, refreshing waterfalls and motorbikes that I drove wayyyyyy too fast through the mountains 😬 Like every human being ever, I was trying to make my life … Continue reading
