My memories of you may fade, but my feelings for you remain forever.

My memories of you may fade,but my feelings for you remain forever.- Positive Masters, Jon Riki Karamatsu, 9/3/2020 -I came up with this heartwarming quote while I was writing my first full-length screenplay in the lifestyle + competition genre that took me about 30 days to complete. I really like the process of writing a screenplay, which moves much faster and is much shorter than novels. Screenplays are a blueprint for the actors and directors to execute on to make a movie. For my unpublished novels, it took me between 4 years to 8 years to complete, so I really feel happy to be able to finish writing a screenplay within a month. I can pump out a lot more...

These type of words and the tone of them can create unnecessary frustration in your life. When you have goals, it's human to fall short at times. No one achieves everything they want.

Don't scold them for falling short of your standards. I repeat "your standards," which could be blown out of proportion (another cognitive...

I seek savior in ages of critical thought.

I'm so lost.I have one foot in the living,while the other foot is out.I seek savior in ages of critical thought. - poem, +positive masters+, Jon Riki Karamatsu, 3/3/2020 - At times, you may have conflicting feelings that pull you in opposite directions. In this poem, I refer to your feeling of wanting to get away from everything; yet, you're still wanting to be a part of it. You're frustrated with the bad things in the universe; yet, you greatly appreciate the good. If you're feeling this, I understand. I go through these periods too. Critical thinking - philosophy has helped me to calm my racing mind and fears. For example, Stoicism and Buddhism has been beneficial for me when...
