Resolution

READ MORE

“You’ve slowly forgotten what really matters to you, what you were once passionate about, how you truly feel about issues, yourself, and others.”

The big picture. Every time you adjust the antenna for other people, your resolution is compromised.

“Oh, if I just adapt and explain and they understand, then everyone will be happy and see there was no problem, no conflict. No war.”

Stop adapting and explaining. You want to be high-definition? Throw away all your damn remote controls. Let go of them. This is your reality TV show. If someone wants to see some cartoons or watch the History Channel instead of what’s on, they can go find another provider. If you need their approval rating, that’s your problem right there.

Yeah, the image might still be blurry right now. You want a new resolution and high quality? You’re going to have to work and pay for what you want.

Retribution

“Let’s see what they’re made of.”

Vulnerabilities, everywhere.

“The pattern is clear.”

Dismantle the cookie jar of hope and they instantly crumble.

Again, I stress, break them.

Pawn

READ MORE

A pawn is a piece of the lowest value that is usually moved first. They typically are the first pieces to be captured and they blindly move forward one position. However, on the first move, they can jump two positions.

A lucky pawn that reaches the end of the board can be promoted to any other piece, typically a Queen. Who would have ever known that it was once a little pawn?

They are essential and yet.. disposable.

Would you pawn your life for an opportunity to chase your dream? A chance to jump not two, but six positions? Across the pond.

The pawn shop is never open for business at the right time. The timing seems to always be a little off. Maybe, if.. just, maybe..

Point Blank

READ MORE

“If you have an important point to make, don’t try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time – a tremendous whack.”

When people don’t see how wrong they are, show them.

“The mind is quicker than the eye.”

No, teach them.

“I know your thoughts.”

Better yet, destroy them.
