Forever Life-Changing Love

I have to let you go,
But it is not forever

I dream about being in your dreams,
As my thoughtfulness thinks more than it seems

You are a little bit further than far away, but
I’m not scared because my heart has you closely close

I have to close my eyes now,
But it is not forever

When they open heavy and blurry,
Your face will be there for lightness and clarity

I wonder about forever,
A word that is never changes, yet forever changes

The change I wish to see is on that is old and average,
Yet spontaneous and joyful

It is a forever life-changing love that grows never apart,
Yet always together

I have to let you go now,
But it is not forever

Thanks for reading :)

You see
I get asked a lot, “What’s your type?”

You see
I don’t have a type
So what’s all the hype?

You see
She doesn't just fall into a basket
She cannot be defined by a certain asset

You see
The love I look for runs much deeper than just a type
The love is not a fruit, it’s not judged by how ripe
It’s not judged by her body or her money
But what if she is funny?

You see
Instead of looking and searching
I notice
Moments that resemble a flower’s lotus

You see When I see…

From Miro Website

I started using Miro back in 2018 when it was formerly called RealTimeBoard. It’s been so awesome to witness all the growth from feature development to the increase in collaborative accessibility.

The purpose of this article is to show how Miro has a major use case for solo work in addition to it’s well known collaborative features.

I am going to walk through 5 five personal use cases and touch on some of Miro’s strengths: the why, the design, the UX, and collaboration.

First, if you don’t know what Miro is, I’ll briefly explain it.

Let’s get into it.

What is Miro?

I look down at a text message on my phone:

“Dude, Kobe died”

I dropped to my knees and my brain stopped working. In this exact moment, reading these two words stringed together “Kobe died” made my brain collapsed.

The left side of my brain was trying to make sense between a sentence that cannot make sense in the English language. There weren’t any tools in my mind to comprehend or make sense of what that means.

The right side of my brain was trying to feel the news of “Kobe died” but my implicit emotional memory could not draw…

Trauma is not only in the brain, but it lives in the body too — The Body Keeps The Score by Bessel Van Der Kolk, M.D.

Empathy & Trauma

If you’re in the empathy business, then learning about trauma and how to empathize with people who’ve experienced trauma is incredibly important because it’s the most human thing we can do.

And guess what — everyone is in the empathy business. Why? Because you are a human being.

Empathy is the action of understanding, connecting, and relating to someone else’s emotion. Emotion is the most biological and primitive part of the human brain (limbic system). Without emotions, we would not be able to survive.

How do you empathize with people who have experienced trauma (or some form of extreme/prolonged anxiety…

Do you feel as if you are drowning underneath social media?

Social media is everywhere. Social media is the internet.

The internet is just how we define the means of communicating with others around the world. Over 3.2 billion people use a form of social media to interact with others.

Social media consists of but not limited to: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tik Tok, Snapchat, Pinterest, Youtube, Medium, etc.

The biggest problem I am noticing in mental health amongst social media users is comparison.

Comparison is the thief of joy and it leads to anxiety and depression.

Self-compassion, self-acceptance, and self-love…
