When you’re stuck in a loop

Sometimes it seems that everything is going wrong. That your life is spiraling out of control. And this makes you feel like a failure.

The more you fail, the more you think of yourself as a failure.

The more you think of yourself as a failure, the more you fail.

Stop sabotaging yourself. Here are eight practical ways to change your self-description.

“When you get stuck in a negative cycle, meditate on the accomplishments in your life—the big accomplishments and the small ones. Determine the positive attributes that must have been present for those to occur. And begin focusing more on those positive traits than any negative descriptions.”

Curious about science and technology?

I just watched “Jason Silva: Transhumanism” on CuriosityStream.

“If human evolution occurred in a cosmic blink of an eye, this is nothing compared to technological evolution. Today our symbiotic relationship with technology is shaping the future of things to come.”

CuriosityStream is a streaming service that delivers nonfiction documentaries and series about science, technology, history, and nature.

Ochazuke at Seryna

What our daughter Sam had Thursday night at Seryna. Ochazuke!

Haven’t eaten in Seryna in a long time. It’s our favorite Japanese restaurant. Also haven’t had ochazuke (tea rice) — Sam highly recommends it.

The one where Batista emailed me

Amusing, if a bit desperate. I used to subscribe to the WWE Network, so they are still trying to lure me back. WrestleMania 35 is next week and I really couldn’t care less, especially about Batista vs Triple H 😜 Which is weird because I’ve been a WWE fan since the 80s.

I had such high hopes when Shinsuke Nakamura and Asuka joined the WWE. They became my favorites. But what happened to both of them shows Vince McMahon really has no respect for Japanese wrestlers.

Particularly booking Asuka to drop her Smackdown Women’s title to Charlotte Flair less than two weeks from WrestleMania, just because they don’t have a clue what to do with her.
