Digesting brewing storms before dawn
Feeble vibrations sink you to submission
Full off spirits that never cause a reflection you can comprehend
The first face – This is the face that you present to strangers, acquaintances, coworkers, etc… Each one of these types of people serves a purpose for being in your life for a specific reason (coworkers and acquaintances) and the ones you pass by on a daily basis (strangers) are ones you have to adapt to. In other words, you have to size them up so to speak and make sure the interaction you’re having with them is either, meaningful, awkward, cordial, humorous, dangerous, etc… Another aspect of the first face is its protection. It’s like your mask that you keep secrets, insecurities, background information, hidden from people who you only see for certain reasons in your life. Furthermore, these kind of people don’t need to know because they’re not in your life consistently and have not earned enough trust for you to be open with.
The second face – This is the face that allows you to let your guard down to the company that is consistently with you and has gained your trust. This face is one that allows you to confide in and gives you support when you’re in a dilemma.
The third face – This is the face that one would take to the grave with them without exposing anyone to it because of negative reactions and emotions it could bring out of people. For example, look at some celebrities who allegedly and not so allegedly exhibited vile behavior. Had they not been caught they would take their sins to the grave, and avoid infamy.

Medium complexity habits (Can be developed in 14 to 21 days through practice and repetition).
What I realized from the people that I follow on this site is that they are consistent with their posting of blog entries regardless of the content. Some post daily, some a few times a week, and some have specific times and dates, but they all have one thing in common and that this type of activity is habitual. Below are six ways people can develop a habit and be committed to it without faltering.
1). Make a decision
2). Never allow an exception to your new habit
3). Tell others you are practicing a new behavior
By informing friends and family your practices in a new particular behavior will give you a support system and an “audience” that will encourage you and see if you have the willpower to persevere and accomplish your resolutions.
4). Visualize your new habit
Visualize yourself in the process of performing or behaving in a particular way or situation. By consistently doing this, you’ll become more familiar with the new habit and find appreciation in it. This will cause your subconscious mind to accept it and thus will become automatic.
5). Create an affirmation
By encouraging yourself with affirming statements consistently you’ll become persistent without neglecting or partially completing a particular behavior that you want as a new habit.
6). Resolve to persist
Once the new habit becomes automatic, you’ll feel uncomfortable if you didn’t accomplish what you set out to do.
7). Reward yourself
By rewarding yourself for practice in your new habits, you’ll reaffirm and reinforce the behavior. Soon enough you’ll associate at an unconscious level the pleasure of the reward with the behavior.
