You spot it, you got it.

That’s a known truth.

I hate that. I hate that my character defects can be so glaring, yet I’m always the last to know.

I’m easily irritated. I think that says a lot.

I’m usually irritated at the behavior of others. I think that says even more.

I get frustrated at how quickly people become frustrated…because I am so easily frustrated.

It drives me nuts when people fish for compliments… because I am the Capt Ahab of compliment fishing. **I had to google Capt. Ahab. I originally went with Jacques Cousteu**

Drama? I hate drama…most likely, because I’m an absolute drama queen.

As a pouter, I have no tolerance for pouting.

From my understanding and experience, that’s the way it works. When I am bothered by the behavior of others, it’s usually because it is a reflection of myself in some capacity. I know a phony when I see one, and I know when someone has ulterior motives. This is coming from a guy who has tried to be who I am not, and been a self-seeking snake at numerous periods in my life. What I have found is that I am much more the model to that which I critique and makes me angry, than I am to the contrary.

You spot it, you got it.

I don’t think that this is a “bad” thing. I don’t think that it is necessarily a “good” thing. I think it is an interesting thing, and something that is worthy of attention. I think it’s eye-opening and I think it’s good to be aware of it. It indicates to me that if I am willing to put in the work to make myself a better person, than the world around me will become better for it.

As I roll my eyes, thumb my nose, mumble under my breath, huff with impatience, and gossip about others, it might be worth taking a look at what is broken inside of me.

Be present. Be aware. Be energetic. Be happy.

Peace, Love, and all things Beef related,


My name is Wilson Horrell, aka “Beefcake”.  I’m a junkie turned sober that found CrossFit, running, and community to be my new addiction. I have no education or experience as a writer, and almost zero knowledge of grammar. I love sitting in front of a computer and spitting it out on paper as it goes through my brain. I hope you enjoy reading, and feel free to reach out or comment at anytime!
