Loving EntreLeadership right now. 😃

The art of losing isn’t hard to master; 

so many things seem filled with the intent 

to be lost that their loss is no disaster. 

Lose something every day. Accept the fluster 

of lost door keys, the hour badly spent. 

The art of losing isn’t hard to master. 

Then practice losing farther, losing faster: 

places, and names, and where it was you meant 

to travel. None of these will bring disaster. 

I lost my mother’s watch. And look! my last, or 

next-to-last, of three loved houses went. 

The art of losing isn’t hard to master. 

I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster, 

some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent. 

I miss them, but it wasn’t a disaster. 

—Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture 

I love) I shan’t have lied. It’s evident 

the art of losing’s not too hard to master 

though it may look like (Write it!) like disaster.

The only thing you actually enjoy, dopamine.
"Most people are aware that imbalanced levels of neurotransmitters can contribute to mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety. Although the neurotransmitter serotonin gets a lot of mainstream attention and most of the hype, in recent years dopamine has been getting more attention. Dopamine is believed to play a role in cognitive function, reward, motivation, and allowing us to feel pleasure.

Each time you experience a pleasurable sensation, whether it’s from sexual intercourse, gambling, or drugs – dopamine is released. There is significant evidence to support the hypothesis that low dopamine can: impair cognition, decrease motivation, and make us feel totally apathetic. This has lead many people to experiment with dopaminergics (i.e. DRIs) as a way to cope with a potential dopamine deficiency.

Dopamine doesn’t just magically appear in the brain, our body manufactures it by breaking down the amnio acid tyrosine – which can be obtained from food sources. This has lead to an increasing interest in specific dietary modifications as a means to consume foods that have potential to increase dopamine levels in the brain.
Foods That Increase Dopamine
Understand that foods don’t contain dopamine, but they may contain amino acid ingredients that stimulate the production of dopamine in your brain (e.g. tyrosine). By eating foods rich in tyrosine, your brain will be able to synthesize the neurotransmitter dopamine. Also it is important to understand that certain foods provide a surge of short-term dopamine (e.g. a rush), but cause a dopamine crash over the long-term (this should be avoided).... " [read on]

Just finished reading about the Age of Enlightenment. My independent studies continue, can't wait until my brother joins (interdependent studies yay!) Onward to Rene Descartes and John Locke and then I believe I will turn in for the night and let my brain decompress :)

I'm not alone in my seemingly radical (at least in my day to day environment) thoughts.
