Owning Your Disorder as a Superpower 

One of the personal cycles of life is that our greatest strengths can become our greatest weaknesses… and through that process, become again our greatest strengths, rediscovered and stronger than before.

I think the man sitting opposite me was burned as a child…it’s only noticeable from front on – his tight cheek and the right corner of his mouth are not quite right; a little to smooth and shiny

The Blog Diary Connundrum / PSA / Disclaimer

Having gone through a few life changes in recent times, and now rolling with an updated perception of both ‘then’ & ‘now’, I may be facing a connundrum.

Experience Is The Best Research Tool

Most things in life can only be known & understood via personal experience.

And even then, all knowledge acquisition is subject to the conditions it was consumed under.  For example, stress and uncertainty are not ideal conditions for retaining information. Such difficulties tend to leave a greater lasting experiential & emotional impact, and are not so conducive to absorbing and retaining theoretical or conceptual amounts of data.
