Hungry for What

Have you ever been hungry and not know exactly what you were hungry for?

That’s how I feel about life.

I’m hungry.

I just don’t know exactly what I’m hungry for.

Craving, Itching, Longing

The craving won’t go away.

You’re craving something.

The itch won’t go away.

You’re itching for something.

There’s something on your mind.

You can’t stop thinking about it.

You’re longing for it.

You’re anxious and restless.

The craving won’t go away until it’s satisfied.

The itch won’t go away until it’s scratched.

Satisfy the craving.

Scratch the itch.

One More Time

So it didn’t work out.

Try again.

Give ourselves another chance.

Thomas Edison said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”

We didn’t fail.

We won’t fail.

Because we will try again.

We will try one more time as many times as it takes.

Thomas Edison also said, “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”

So don’t give up.

Don’t ever give up.

Next Chapter

May the next chapter be full of progress and break throughs.

Meaning and Fulfillment

Meaning is having something to aim for and work for.

Fulfillment is working toward it and making progress toward it.

Stronger

I push myself to the breaking point.

I break.

I gather.

I regroup.

Then I push myself again.

Each time I push a little bit further.

Each time I get a little bit stronger.

I won’t stop pushing.

I will get stronger.

All at Once

Trying to be happy.

Trying to be healthy.

Trying to live freely.

Trying to live in peace.

Trying to make it financially.

Trying to be around good people.

Trying to do it all at once is a lot.

S&P 500

I invest in the S&P 500 index.

It’s Warren Buffett endorsed and approved.

It’s simple.

It’s cost-effective.

It’s accessible and liquid.

It doesn’t require much work.

It offers broad, instant diversification.

It’s an efficient and effective way to own the top businesses in America.

It’s proven.

It works.

But there’s one issue I’ve been thinking about lately.

When I own the whole index, I own companies and industries I don’t believe in.

I own companies I know nothing about in industries I know nothing about.

I own companies I would never invest in directly and individually.

This goes against everything I stand for.

I live intentionally.

I do things I believe in.

I do things for a reason.

I’m selective.

So why am I investing in companies and industries I don’t believe in?

Because it’s easy?

Because I’m lazy?

Because it doesn’t require much time, attention, energy, effort, and thought?

Because it’s safe?

There is a better way.

Going at It Alone

Going at it alone,

Would rather go at it together,

Because together we’re stronger and better.

Don’t want to go at it with just anybody,

We need to align,

If we seek, we shall find.

If we’re on a similar mission,

Why not join forces,

We can come together and share resources.

Nobody can do it alone,

Going at it alone is a mistake,

A united effort is what it will take.

What I’m seeking is out there,

I put myself out there in hopes to attract,

Somebody who values me back.

What I’m seeking is seeking me,

We’re both looking for the right fit,

Together we can build something legit.

Don’t give up on me,

I won’t give up on you,

Because I know together all the good we can do.
