Intention, Impact, Interpretation

Today is the one day anniversary of my GoFundMe.  I did a GoFundMe in regards to restoring my teeth. Before I begin I want to say thank you to everyone that shared it, donated to it, and made it so my smile is a hell of a lot better than it was a year ago. Continue reading “Intention, Impact, Interpretation”

Two Voices

One of my biggest frustrations with people is that they are unwilling to act. I’m being brutal and critical here, and a little bit hypocritical.  Nonetheless, it is very frustrating for me to witness people not act on what they should be doing. I know, I know, it sounds judgmental as all hell.  What isContinue reading “Two Voices”

The Copycat Method – Five Months Later

For backstory, read here: https://jpantalleresco.wordpress.com/2018/03/27/what-my-teeth-has-taught-me-about-people/ .  Don’t worry. I’ll be here when you get back. Finish reading? Cool. Let’s begin shall we? So with the exception of two promises I made prior to this, I’ve followed this pretty close to the letter. One individual I promised to trade journal entries with. The other I know just needsContinue reading “The Copycat Method – Five Months Later”

Miller and Jim Jackson a personal story.  Wondering what to talk about, I realize that perhaps I should reflect on my feelings and some of the changes I’ve noticed in the past few months.  Not to mention that over the weekend, I realized an imposter had snuckContinue reading “My Imposter”

Eliminating the Need to Judge Others

Once upon a time I knew how the world worked.  I had ideas of right and wrong.  Marijuana was bad.  Alcohol was bad.  There was a right way of doing things and a wrong way of doing things.  This Josh had all of life’s answers. We all I think have a little of this inContinue reading “Eliminating the Need to Judge Others”

Bicycles, Life Skills and Jobs. It’s all the Same.

  I still remember the first time I rode my bike.  I was five years old and I had these amazingly dinky training wheels connected to the biggest blue bicycle I’ve ever seen.  I rode and rode that thing and was happy as I can be. Until I noticed other kids riding without training wheels. Continue reading “Bicycles, Life Skills and Jobs. It’s all the Same.”

My Four Rules

Last blog, I talked about not beating yourself.  A lot of people tend to defeat themselves before they begin.  Also in general, a lot of talk is about finding fulfillment.  I have the belief that these two things are connected.  I find simplicity is the key to dealing with both ends to this.  How notContinue reading “My Four Rules”

What My Teeth has taught me about People

Before we begin, I have a fun little place for each of you to check out.  http://ncase.me/trust/ Pretty cool right? So why play that game?  (Besides the fact that it is fun) because at heart, there is a lesson about people in general that needs to be made here. But first, man, what a difference teethContinue reading “What My Teeth has taught me about People”
