Busy, Busy Bee–ing

So much is going on this week that I don’t have time to catch a breath.

badge_twoFirst, I will be a guest video poster at The Outlier Collective. For those of you who don’t know, TOC is a blog created by Le Clown and Madame Weebles. Each week, they choose a topic and invite bloggers “to weigh in on the weekly topic, in whatever way they choose. The results are sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, sometimes passionate, always thought-provoking.”

kareem-abduljabbar-and-bruce-leeThis week has been a ” A Seven Day Conversation on Feminism,” and I’m loaded to go on the last day, Sunday. It’s a bit intimidating being one of the only men in the discussion and watching The Belle Jar’s post “10 Signs That Feminism May Not Be For You” go viral. This post got over 14,500 hits in less than 4 days. Have you ever seen a 2000 visit stat bar next to a 5,500+ bar look like Bruce Lee standing next to Kareem Abdul Jabbar? I have.

Then I have an article scheduled to come out on Tuesday at the Greater Good webpage. Greater Good is an amazing off-shoot of the University of California at Berkeley. The tagline at Greater Good is “We study the psychology, sociology, and neuroscience of well being and teach skills that foster a thriving, resilient, and compassionate society.

Right up my alley, right? I know I’m probably shooting myself in the foot by telling you about the article before it comes out, but I figure if I didn’t tell you and it didn’t come out, you would never have known about it. See how considerate I am.

If that weren’t enough, I have a huge release early next week. It is a special surprise for the Monthly Peace Challenge: Peace at Home. I have finally found out what I’m suppose to be doing in life, and I’m so excited to share it with you.
In all this chaos, I seem to have found some peace.
  • I am so far behind on reading blogs that I have decided to just enjoy the weekend.
  • I am so anxious about the syndicated posts that I have given up all expectations.
  • I’ve been making videos almost everyday this week and none of them are perfect, but all of them represent who I am and what I believe.
  • I am working harder than I have ever worked for no pay, but I feel more content than I have ever felt.
  • I am thankful to have found blogging and you as a blogging friend.

Hope to see you in the next few days at some different locales.

Thank you for reading, sharing, and/or smiling.

Have you ever found peace in the eye of a storm? Please share.

    I often find peace in the eye of the storm… it’s finding peace in the aftermath that is challenging 😉
    Looking forward to your TOC post!

    Hey thx 4 the heads up! Very insightful post about feminism, I can see why it went viral. Looking forward to your guest post @ TOC! {{{hugs}}}

  8. I’m so excited for you Kozo! Like we say in french : “Merde!”, which, literally translated would mean “poop” if wouldn’t also be an expression meaning “Good Luck” 🙂 Go figure, I guess it’s kind of like saying “break a leg” ! So “merde” Kozo, I’m really thrilled to find out what you realized you should be doing in life, that is GRAND, wow! *taps foot anxiously* 😀 So much so much, and looking forward to it all!

    • Kozo Hattori says:

      I never knew “Merde!” meant good luck, PWP. I love that. In Hawaii, they used to ask, “did you step in dog poop?” when something really luck happened to you.
      Here’s to hoping this next week is full of shi..take mushrooms. haha.
      {{{hugs}}} Kozo

    When I get overwhelmed, I picture myself throwing it all up in the air and landing wherever. Then I do what comes naturally. Usually works out pretty well. I do what I need to be doing – what is most important for me and those around me.
