"Knowing in your heart that it’s okay if people don’t like you is the foundation upon which all of your boundaries can be built."

I really liked this line because it reminds me that I choose to like people and people choose to like me. That's a pretty cool thought
You answered a question about fixing your own broken-ness and not allowing broken people to burden you anymore by deciding you're worthwhile. I get that in theory but I'm a people-pleaser all the way and I don't know how else to make friends. Does the friend-making get easier when you decide ...

Any tips for being artistic more often?
Act creatively now or as soon as possible, don't let life get in the way or life will always be in the way. Making our habits convenient helps.

How do you combat narrow framing? Find more options. Question your own ideas. Step back a little. And know that it's okay to be wrong! =) http://uncannycreativity.com/make-rational-decisions.html

In my latest blog post, I'm exploring the decision making process with the method found in the book Decisive. When making better choices, it just makes sense to accept human nature.

The greatest paths are often so very difficult. And why are the worst choices are too easy?
In the book “Decisive“, Chip and Dan Heath describe a four step process for decisions since as humans we have a few illogical biases to overcome.

"Not only do you become what you think about, but the world also becomes what you think about. Those who think that the world is a dark place are blind to the light that might illuminate their lives. Those who see the light of the world view the dark spots as merely potential light."

'It’s a difficult thing to explain, because the kind of person who says “I’m only into to white guys — sorry that’s just my preference” is operating from the fundamental assumption that one’s personal preferences are the product of independent and original thought. Nothing could be further from the truth.Our personal preferences aren’t personal. They don’t spring forth from some internal source. We absorb them from the external environment, and that environment is racist as fuck. Our concepts of beauty, masculinity, femininity, and social status — hell, the very idea of race itself — these are all just things that get poured into our developing brains during our enculturation.'
How do you explain to someone that saying things like “I'm only into white guys – sorry that's just my preference” is racist as fuck. It would be great if you could expand on this from your fun sized advice. It's a difficult thing to explain, because the kind of person who says “I'm only into to ...

Next time you find yourself upset at public opinions over gay marriage, consider that a majority of Americans didn't even approve of interracial marriage until the mid-90s.

13% of people in Gallup polls still are willing to say that they are against black-white marriage.

As a country we have a long history of disapproving of other people's marriages. It's quite a tradition!
Representing one of the largest shifts of public opinion in Gallup history, 87% of Americans approve of marriage between blacks and whites, up from 4% in 1958. Older Americans are the least likely to approve.

If you work second shift or just want a late night snack, its one of the few places in towson that's open that isn't fast food. It's a great idea for those times with a lot of variety. They are open 24 hours. Towson has a lot of better options for fine dining but this isn't meant to be that.
