rough texture

Đẹp Trai Không Bằng Chay Mặt.
Good-looks Don’t Trump a Calloused Face
-Vietnamese (Street) Proverb

I had dinner with a friend last night, a friend who happens to be good-looking, fun, successful, and a massive pimp (or used to be)–sorry ladies, he’s taken.  And we started discussing why some of our mutual friends were successful with women–either happily married or SBC (Single By Choice)–while others were unmarried and SNBC.

“Life is not easy for any of us.  But what of that?  We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves.  We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.”

climber with rope attached

It took me a while, but I’m back in business baby. I’m ahead on my blog writing, which means I can now concentrate on the book. My life has been rejiggered to accommodate new friends and new projects, and all the puzzle pieces are starting to snap together.

On your journey you’re going to have instances of self-doubt. After all, crags and chasms are part of the terrain. The answer of course is to continually affirm yourself. Even a veteran mountain climber has to steady his feet now and again. You do too, else you fall into the abyss.

lots of fresh eggs

Pain is your brain’s way of demanding change. Don’t waste your limited time on this earth trying to run away from it or trying to sweep it under the rug. If you don’t give it due respect, it will come back with a vengeance. You may feel the urge to stuff your face with food, to bury your blues with booze, to marinate your senses with unending titillations. But you mustn’t.
