WAKE UP LOVING YOU

Posted in Jones' Poems with tags , , , , on February 27, 2014 by tiltdiary

Cannot sleep

Cannot weep

Longing for you to hold me tight

Just for one more night

Sometimes wishing I could forget

And embrace regret

Let my broken heart heal

So I can begin to feel

I can’t look back

Cut myself some slack

Only sweet dreams will let me rest

Knowing I love you best

The morning light will shine through

As I wake up loving you

DISCOVER THE BEST IN YOURSELF

Posted in Jones' wisdom with tags , , , , , , on February 26, 2014 by tiltdiary

The only thing that will hold you back from flying and reaching the limitless sky are your fears and negative thoughts. Do not give them any power, because fear is something other people taught you and told you about, and many of your thought patterns were created by other people’s believes. Let old believes go so you can find who you really are. Be courageous and fierce when you get ready to discover the best in yourself.

KEY TO ETERNAL HAPPINESS

Posted in Jones' wisdom with tags , , , , , , on February 25, 2014 by tiltdiary

nanettegonzales_ellie-1058-1I have lived with the hounds for more than 15 years now, and often, I had wondered what the key to their eternal happiness is. Of course, I give them a good life, a fair amount of exercise, the best food possible. and all the love I can give. They have a safe home and loving family … but most people have all of that too and are still not happy. What is the key to eternal happiness and why are we humans never satisfied or content? What makes us so different from animals? The only conclusion I can come to is that my dogs are always true to themselves. They never pretend and are always who they are. They are 100% true to themselves and their emotions and how they feel about other pack member, humans, cars, children, squirrels, ambulance sirens, airplanes, motorcycles, … They never pretend and live fully in their own skin.

Today, I want to remind you of who you truly are. I want you to look deep inside of yourself and feel your core. Your core is the stable, calm, resolved part of yourself that lives deep inside of you. The part that you most of the time don’t listen to because you are too busy listening to what other people think is right. I want to encourage you to feel that part of you, the truthful part of you, and I want to encourage you to turn more often to your core, because she knows who you really are and what you truly need. Embrace her and realize you have this strong self and nothing should be able to take away your truthful self. Be YOU, live you more often, today, tomorrow, and every day for the rest of your life.

COMATOSE OF MODERN SOCIETY

Posted in Jones' wisdom with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 24, 2014 by tiltdiary

Depression is on the rise in the USA. People cannot see the tomorrow and drown their sorrow by numbing themselves with drugs and alcohol or trying to get help through psychiatric help and pharmaceutical drugs. Depression and using drugs (and to me anti-depressants and recreational drugs are not much different) has become a norm and not being on substance is actually “abnormal” today. When I tell people I do not drink they think I am a diabetic or a recovering alcoholic. Something has to be wrong with me. When I go to the dentist to get my teeth cleaned the receptionist asks me twice about the section that stays empty on my patient information form where they ask me what drugs I am on. Now a days something has to be wrong with you if you aren’t using. Sure, I have had the blues many times in my life. I have lost in 2008 what was most precious to me, but my will to create and be passionate was always stronger than the urge to just give up. I can always look ahead and see the tomorrow no matter what challenges I have to face, but I do know many people who cannot even visualize tomorrow. They are hopeless, helpless, depressed, and don’t know how to change. They give in to the increasing epidemic of modern society: a life in comatose.

But life is so much more than giving in. Life is about creating, expressing, changing, facing your fears, and taking the next challenge. Live with me today. Find your passion, create something, help an animal or a child, open your ears, unclog your nostrils, open your eyes, feel your skin, and start breathing … Life is about what takes your breath away.

REQUIRED STRIPPER ATTITUDE

Posted in Stripper Secrets with tags , , , , , , , on February 23, 2014 by tiltdiary

Many of my co-strippers agree: in order to be successful at what we do it takes a light and breeze attitude and the willingness to entertain on a very simple level. Childish, playful, silly, and always happy is preferred to intelligence and deep thoughts. We are here to cheer people up, uplift them, and carry them to a fantasy world where even the ugly, rude man is loved by the gorgeous, beautiful dancer. Kind of like the “Beauty and the Beast” scenario. It takes a lot of effort and skill to keep this attitude up. Stripping is not just a physically demanding profession, it’s also energetically draining. Men like it simple, and anybody who comes to the strip club wants to have a good time and not necessarily see that there is a living, breathing, often very sensitive creature with a vulnerable heart under that bare skin of the stripper.

WHAT’S SEX ALL ABOUT?

Posted in Stripper Secrets with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 22, 2014 by tiltdiary

The club has taught me many things I didn’t know about life, love, humans, sex, and relationships. I had to quickly rethink and start understanding that sex is most of the times not about love. Sex can have many motives and reasons. Some people seek a physical or mental fix through sex. Sometimes, it’s really just about getting off and getting that physical fix. For other people sex is about power, creativity (for some often the only way to express themselves and be who they really are), or it’s simply a game where there is only one winner. I rarely hear people talk about sex in connection with love. Yet, I cannot help to wonder why people engage into sex without love being involved. Yeah, I get the physical relief part, but can’t you get that safer, cheaper, and less complicated by masturbating? Good sex takes a lot of effort and why would you put so much effort and skill into someone you don’t deeply care about? It seems like a waste of energy to me. But maybe, sex has become more like a 24 hour drive through fast food restaurant. You can get your favorite dish any time, any place, with minimal expense, and the jumbo size is available to your convenience because everybody is hungry for more. Wondering which sex fast food consequences we are really facing?
