I changed my mind regarding watching television shows and playing video games. If they bring joy into your life and help you to alleviate your stress and anxiety, go ahead and consume them in moderation to get that boost of energy that you need to keep working on your dream life.

I hardly ever play video games and rarely watch television programs. I don’t have any video games on my computer, nor do I have a game console at home. About five years ago, I deleted any video game from my smart phone.

This all changed this past Saturday January 25, 2020 when my 9-year-old second cousin E showed me how much he loves the video game “The Battle Cats” by Ponos Corporation (Known as “Battle Nekos,” as named by the founders in Japan), available for smart phones and tablets. He showed me how to play it. The characters are so darn cute, and the battles are fun, like a journey. There’s also funny descriptions for the scenes and characters and motivational comments that are applicable to your life. Playing it was like a tasty medicine that makes you high with pleasure. During the time I played the game, it took my mind off of the darkness that has been clouding my mind and soul: the deaths of those I love, dealing with difficult people and issues, facing prison time for my driving under the influence, opposition against my business projects and career, financial challenges, and other things bothering me. In moderate doses, “The Battle Cats” has recharged my energy to get myself back in the game of business and personal growth. I’m going all-out again after my latest bout with darkness when this past Christmas ended and my sister Mia and her family left Hawaii to return back to California.

As far as watching television, I avoid the news because of its negativity, but I recently began watching more fictional stories and documentaries that has sparked ideas for my fictional and nonfictional writing and motivated me to keep moving forward on my business projects, personal development, and my dreams for a life of creativity and more time with my loved ones.

So there it is, I changed my life policy on avoiding television shows and video games. In moderation, it can actually be a tool to recharge yourself so you can continue to play your real-life game in your career and personal growth.

Why be in the thick of craziness, stressed by busyness and a wide range of people and their demands when you can find a way to create greater success within yourself and among a few nurturing people.

Your quality of life is the most important. You can choose your path of purpose and define your success. You can reinvent yourself and stack new skills, knowledge, and relationships on top of your existing ones. You can create value for others by yourself or with a few positive people. Your work is a game because it’s fun, and the people you work with are your friends because you genuinely care for one another.

When it’s real, you just feel.


I repurposed the following poem I wrote for +positive masters+.

When it's real, you just feel. A romantic poem.

“When it’s real, you just feel.” A romantic poem. Enjoy!

When it’s real, you just feel.

It’s neither here nor there.

It’s everywhere.

Close your eyes and you’ll see.

I’ll focus on you. You focus on me.

Feel the energy as the two of us becomes “we.”

All we really want is to love and be loved. Don’t abandon the child in you. ⁠


All we really want is to love and be loved. Don't abandon the child in you.

This picture speaks for itself. So powerful.

All we really want is to love and be loved. Don’t abandon the child in you. ⁠

Pictured is the amazing artwork called “Love” by Ukrainian artist Alexander Milov for the Burning Man showing two adults upset and hurt by one another but the child in each of them wants to forgive and be with each other. Just looking at this picture gets me teary-eyed. If we can see the innocent child in ourselves and others, the world will be a much better place. Sending love to you. ❤️⁠

I seek loneliness to protect me.


I seek loneliness to protect me.⁠ This is a poem about wanting inner peace from judgment and attacks. When your work puts you out in the public, you will get judged, attacked, and punished harsher than if you are quiet and anonymous.

I seek loneliness to protect me.⁠

Hiding my dreams from my enemies.⁠

If I have nothing, then why would anyone attack me for nothing?⁠

Little by little, I make my imagination real.⁠

In time, you can touch it. ⁠

Then, you can tell me how it makes you feel.⁠
