12 Obvious Reasons Why The Obesity Rate Is Rising

So this morning as I was reading the news, I came upon an article that was talking about how the nation’s obesity rates are rising, which of course was no surprise to me.  But in the article was a very disturbing sentence that read “Experts said they had no explanation for why the obesity rate appears to be rising.”  This really set me off.  How can “experts” really have no idea.  What are they even experts of then?  Because it took me all of about 2 minutes to easily come up with 12 very reasonable ideas as to why the obesity rate is rising, and I’m certainly no expert.  It just takes a little common sense.  So I decided to write out these 12 reasons, in hopes that maybe some experts will read this and learn a thing or two.

Journal entry about my first LSD trip.....

Kris said later that there was a period there where I didn’t speak for some hours. And that was a weird feeling. It was like when surgery patients describe being numbed and put under but they’re not actually and so the surgeon starts cutting and they can feel everything but they can’t open their mouth to say anything because they’re stuck between worlds.

How I Discovered I Am A Sexual Healer

Over the past couple of months I have encountered multiple situations that have caused me to stop and think about my sexuality and what it means to me.  And by sexuality, I don’t mean sexual orientation, but rather who I am sexually attracted to and why.  I have noticed that the types of people that I identify on paper as an ideal sexual partner are different than the types of people that I have recently found myself sexually attracted to in real life.

I Cant Believe I Did THAT {and why being prepared is an illusion}

You could train or learn or shadow or prep or practice or plan, but when the shit goes down it's basically never going to be how you think it's going to be. So just go for it. Figure it out as you go. Commit to always learning, growing, and changing. Do your best.

Tell Me All Your Thoughts on God (and yoga...and religion...and spirituality)

I don't believe in God in the traditional sense. I am way more into me and the energy I radiate. What makes sense to me is that we're all energy all the time. And we all vibrate at different frequencies and those frequencies attract similar frequencies. So it makes sense that if I'm gossiping or being negative or feeling sorry for myself that I'm radiating at a lower frequency

Why Your Open Relationship Isn't Polyamory

Over the past few years I have encountered lots of people who claim to be polyamorous only to hear them explain a few minutes later that their definition of poly means they live at home with a spouse and children, and occasionally they go on dates and/or have sex with another person on the side who never meets the spouse and never knows the family.  This is not the same thing as polyamory, this is simply an open relationship, and I feel like the two often get lumped together in a very confusing and frustrating way.

Writing Group, Day 6: Bravery is Bullshit

I didn't make pro/con lists, I didn't agonize over the what-ifs. I didn't have a certain amount of money saved as safety net first. Because it wasn't a question. Staying at my corporate job wasn't an option. The only way to go was forward.

To Push or Not to Push {Thoughts on the "American Dream" and owning your shit}

I think that the whole concept of the American Dream is complete horse shit. Go to college, get married, have a family, work really really hard and then retire and enjoy your golden years. I mean - none of that works for me, but especially the concept of having to work hard.

The F*cking Monkey Mind {This, and other scattered thoughts}

 I was unkempt eating peanut butter out of the jar watching Sex and the City. And you know - all of those other things you do when you're alone. I just wanted a body to sleep in the guest room.

What's in a Name? {Thoughts on marriage, divorce, depression, and independence}

I always abstractly knew she was on medication for depression, but I didn't really know what that meant. Of course I have all sorts of hind sight now that I am an "adult". My mom and my grandma had a strange relationship and were always at odds about something.
