By Troy Headrick I’d like to do something a bit different in this blog. It’ll start with me posting a fascinating TED Talk by Leon Berg. The title of his presentation is “The Power of Listening: An Ancient Practice for Our Future.” By the way, before I tell you the true aim of this post,... Continue Reading →
We try to make some sense out of this weird brutal world. The problem is that the sense we’re making has the power f*ck us up inside and that’s what really matters. WE are the ones seeing the world so WE are the ones deciding how it is and we can only do it... Continue Reading →
By Troy Headrick This is the story of my complicated relationship with money and how such a relationship came to be. In the telling of this story, I’ll need to explore the nature of fear and how our parents’ fears end up shaping our own inner psychological landscapes. Before becoming an adult and leaving home,...

Hi all, I hope everyone is doing well! Today, I want to talk about one way I use without knowing that makes me value and hang onto my habits more: leaving my habits for a while. I have been getting back to some of my old habits recently and I like this. I also have... Continue Reading →
Welcome to your life: Whether it's a good day or bad day, it doesn't really matter. They've all started to fade together and you've realized the years have slipped through your fingertips.
Those who regularly read my posts have likely noticed that I’ve been silent for several weeks. In fact, it’s been close to a month since I published my last blog. Well, I’m back now and feeling strong and ready to go. I truly believe that my time away from writing gave me the opportunity to... Continue Reading →
If you don't live somewhere alone, isolated from others, then you see people and you notice them and their behavior. The question is: how often do you judge them based on their behavior and how often do you seek and try to understand the reason behind that behavior? One of my biggest beliefs is that...

Hello, Dear Reader. It's nice to see you again. I'm still here. I'm still SnapDragon, but now I'm a mom! (gasp!) Our little boy came ten weeks early, and while it's been an insanely stressful adventure, I'm happy to report he's doing well. He's our little champ, getting stronger every day. And so, in this...

Even though I haven’t written anything about movies as I did last year, I remained a huge movies fan. Last night I watched The Two Popes, a recent movie directed by Fernando Meirelles, where I heard the quote “Small pleasures are important”. This made me think about how important they really are and why we... Continue Reading →
The sunset shimmered its last pinkish-orange breath of the hazy evening as my mom announced, “This is the place,” as we descended into the valley of twinkling lights. Snow was still glimmering on the mountainside as the day began to wind down. I was as excited as I was anxious about what lied ahead.
If you think about the time you spend daily, how much of it is for short-term goals and how much of it is for long-term goals and why?
The open mind is not as much "attainable" as it is unconsciously undesired. The key is - accepting an idea or opinion doesn't mean you agree with it.
A few days ago, Bogdan brought up destiny in one of his posts, which got me thinking more about this notion. It often seems, or at least is presented as, mysterious. But on reflection, the basic concept itself was fairly straightforward. One's destin-y is one's eventual destin-ation. It's where you'll arrive, the place you'll end... Continue Reading →
How different is your life now compared to the beginning of the year? PS: If my writings mean something to you and if you feel you can learn anything from me, check out my book (Fighting the Inside Dragons) on Amazon in both Kindle and Paperback format!
The human behavior is so unpredictable that understanding seems impossible from time to time. If you have a quick look world-wide, you'll soon realize there are so many situations that seem SF, you'll feel the need to double-check if you're watching a movie or not. So today I'll mention my two fears that rule them... Continue Reading →
On a daily basis, what kind of thoughts make you sad? PS: If my writings mean something to you and if you feel you can learn anything from me, check out my book (Fighting the Inside Dragons) on Amazon in both Kindle and Paperback format!
This is a deep topic and I hope I’m as close to ready as I can for approaching it, so let’s jump into it. In the past three years I got very interested in self-development and I noticed a pattern across all motivational speakers: they all talk about finding your passion and following your destiny....

Hi all, I want to talk about googling information today because I made a mistake regarding it the other day. I love technology. I think it is very helpful in a lot of ways. We should embrace it. But as with everything, it has some bad sides as well. You probably heard the warnings against... Continue Reading →
As always, I’m interested about the reason behind every human behavior and there is one answer that covers everything: the inner universe. The most interesting part about our inner universe is that we barely get to know it, and when we do know parts of it, we often go in the opposite direction. I believe... Continue Reading →
