Hey, I’m James

I believe in people

I write, podcast and make videos about living in freedom through mindfulness, intentionality, compassion, and equanimity.

What is Intentional Living?

Create the life you’ve always wanted

Be More Mindful. Cultivate Intention. Accept What You Cannot Control. Accept Responsibility. Be Compassionate. Be Healthy. Love Yourself. Love Others. Get Right With Life.

Media Manipulation, Maniacs, and Majora’s Mask

Welcome to the final Sunday Pop-Up, where I talk about whatever pops into my head. Horror Movie Media I think about the media a lot. I am pretty sure they hold us in contempt (whoever “they” are in this scenario). Think about it – a month ago everything was about how...
