“Mother Nature will wipe out most of civilization, when she’s decided she’s had enough…When Mother Nature starts to feel a little sick, and all her oil is gone and you’re poisoning her old body with nuclear waste, then she’s going to decide she feels restless and shift a little bit, and it’s going to be all over. She’ll only shift for a moment, but she’ll do her little number. It will be the end for most people, especially those who are ill-prepared“

I randomly saw this TED talk yesterday on the plane from Orlando and it definitely left me inspired and excited about the adventures and projects that I am working on. BELIEVE! 

LIFE HACK “Creating Positive Change” (Day One)

1. Write down 3 gratitude’s each day

I am thankful to have such a wonderful support system. My family, friends and social circles and networks. Without these people I am not sure I would be able to have the number of opportunities I have been afforded. I work hard to make this community even stronger. It is this community that I will need to achieve my goals. I have no doubt that even though achieving these goals will take up a lot of time, these people will understand.

I am thankful for my resources. Although they could always be better and I work hard to continue to improve them, I know that my resources will allow me to achieve my short term goals.

Lastly, I am thankful for independent financial stability. Although more money would be nice, I am thankful that I am able to sustain a moderately comfortable lifestyle that allows me to travel, support my artistic side, and spend time with my family and friends. I have worked hard in the last year to do better financially in hopes of scaling down my life and being a lot less wasteful. So far so good.

2. Journal about 1 positive experience you’ve had over the last 24 hours 

A positive experience in the last 24 hours for me was being able to spend time with my girlfriend before she left for work today. We were able to do some shopping, eat lunch and spend time discussing our communication, our graduate school applications and what obstetrical. She definitely push’s me to be a greater human being and for this I am grateful.

3. Exercise: No

4. Meditate: Not yet, but I hope to later

5. Write one positive email praising or thanking someone in your social support network: Not today

Capitol One to Pay $210 Million Fine for Misleading Customers on Credit Card Fees

Wow… this is too real… I cannot count on two hands the amount of Capital One envelopes I’ve ripped up since I received my Bachelor’s degree… I can only image’n the amount of people that actually opened and read that garbage thinking they were getting a deal. Beware of Capital One, Chase, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, and every other crooked bank…
