I believe that reading is the key that unlocks the mind. I often find that one sentence in a book, a single quote, a little block of text, sparks a thought process in my head that leads to finding a brick of truth that helps me build a better me.

I learn so much from reading that I decided to write about what goes on in my analytical, yet somewhat spaghetti-coded, mind when I come across these little igniting snippets of wisdom. I think, "Hey, if this helps me, it may help others." Enjoy.

Disclaimer. My mind is somewhat random at times. I make no claim that what you're about to read won't make you crazy, help you become President, or serve as a turning point in your life that makes you achieve greatness.

But, I do hope to convey that you're not alone when you realize you may have superhuman strength and believe that you can live a life of purpose and passion.


The World's Greatest Lie

The book The Alchemist holds a very special place in my heart. There are so many interesting similarities that I find between myself and the main character, Santiago—a shepherd boy in search of a treasure. Or really,...

I’ve never been one to believe in New Year’s resolutions. “They’re dumb. No one sets and achieves them.” I’ve always said that I accomplish more when I set short term goals. If I’m...


Hi. I'm Joey. I'm a special needs cat with an autoimmune disorder that has almost killed me 3 times. When I was a kitten, I found this human and I knew he'd take care of me. It's been a ruff road, but I do my best to live my 9 lives to the fullest.

My humans may think they rescued me, but I know better. I've made them better people, and for that, they owe me a life of treats and toys (and medicine).
