What UnWisdom is all About

Just a twenty something year old girl, trying to live and understand, or better yet un-understand this crazy thing we call life. I called the blog words of unwisdom because I am young and I don’t feel I have the right to say I am spewing wisdom. These entries are just my own thoughts and ideas, my own demons and sorrows, my own feelings about life, love, and happiness. I want this to be a place where I can be open and people in turn can feel they can be open too. I would love to here your thoughts and ideas, explanations, revelations or epiphanies about anything and everything.

The only thing this blog is NOT is a place for hate, bigotry, judgement, racism, sexism, ageism, prejudice or stereotypes. I want this to be a place of freedom, where people can read and contemplate and question life’s intentions and origins. Nobody’s opinion is better or worse than the next. My main goal in not to change people’s minds but to open them.

I leave you with a few quotes that I have weaved into what can only be called my personal philosophy 

“You can live in the box freely as long as it is open.” Me

“An open mind is an enlightened mind.”

“Alter your opinion. Open your mind.” Angelina Jolie

“Just be free.”

“I realized there was no I, I was everything.” (documentary DMT: The Spirit Molecule)

“You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees or stars;
you have a right to be here.”

  1. Wow you have a great premise for your blog. I completely respect that you want only to open and inspire your readers minds instead of preach to them. It sounds like you think just like how I try to inspire all of my readers to think. I’ll keep up with your posts 🙂

    Excellent site. I truly enjoyed my visit here and wish you and your endeavor great success.

    “To exist is to be something, as distinguished from the nothing of non-existence, it is to be an entity of a specific nature made of specific attributes. Centuries ago, the man who was—no matter what his errors—the greatest of your philosophers, has stated the formula defining the concept of existence and the rule of all knowledge: A is A. A thing is itself. You have never grasped the meaning of his statement. I am here to complete it: Existence is Identity, Consciousness is Identification.

    Whatever you choose to consider, be it an object, an attribute or an action, the law of identity remains the same. A leaf cannot be a stone at the same time, it cannot be all red and all green at the same time, it cannot freeze and burn at the same time. A is A. Or, if you wish it stated in simpler language: You cannot have your cake and eat it, too.

    Are you seeking to know what is wrong with the world? All the disasters that have wrecked your world, came from your leaders’ attempt to evade the fact that A is A. All the secret evil you dread to face within you and all the pain you have ever endured, came from your own attempt to evade the fact that A is A. The purpose of those who taught you to evade it, was to make you forget that Man is Man.”

    ~ Ayn Rand

  9. Dear uWise One, You are anything but unwise. I love what you have to say about yourself and what you write. I take it you’re from Canada? Would like to know more about what has most influenced you as a person, poet and philosophical searcher. I wish there were more unWise ones in the world. It humbles me and gives me hope for the future.

  22. rangewriter says:

    Glad you’re banning ageism because I could probably be your grandmother…yikes…great grandmother? I hope not. Anyway…if you find wisdom, will you please guide me to the rock it’s been hiding under? I’ve been looking for it all my life!

    I like this :

    “I want this to be a place where I can be open and people in turn can feel they can be open too. I would love to here your thoughts and ideas, explanations, revelations or epiphanies about anything and everything.”

    And this:

    ” I want this to be a place of freedom, where people can read and contemplate and question life’s intentions and origins. Nobody’s opinion is better or worse than the next. My main goal in not to change people’s minds but to open them.”

    Best thoughts,

  24. You do have a right to call your experiences wisdom, they are your wisdom at your age! Yes, they will change but right now, enjoy them, cherish them, appreciate them. I look book and think, wow, things were so much easier back then…..but I wouldn’t have believed it if someone had told me. Thanks for stopping by my blog, I am glad to have found yours.

    I like your blog and your quote “You can live in the box..” But I would add that I like to play in the box as well, especially that big one that the refrigerator comes in. Like you, I like to leave the top open. Thanks for visiting my blog too! 🙂

    OMG! You are _me_ in my early 20s…only there were no blogs back then and I was afraid to share lest people thought me crazy (only my besties could think that and call me that…b/c they truly loved me anyway!). I love the UnWisdom idea and how you express your philosophy and current life path! Good luck to you and stay true to your UnWise course! I veered off it, in favor of what everyone called “real” (real job being the main thing in that discourse) and discovered the hard way that it is simply not my life path (my life goes all wrong and just doesn’t feel true). I lost my compass but luckily it was only misplaced…I’ve found it again and am moving back to where I chose the wrong tine of the fork in the road! Keep the faith, my newfound friend! Oh, yeah…and thanks so much for liking and following my blog (so I could find yours!). BTW, I’m putting yours on my blogroll!
    Peace, Everymom

    • Wow thank you so much for your kind words! I don’t mind being called a little crazy by both friends and family as well as strangers 😉 If living outside the box is crazy then call me crazy! I really enjoyed your “Success” post. So true, I think we would all be a little more happy if we measured our success by R. Emerson’s standards(holy shit! I am overly successful!) Thanks again for the comment and glad to have another reader aboard. I too will add you to my blogroll.
      Peace and Love
      Lindsay

    You – are totally F’cking awsome! I can’t wait to read through your blogs and get your mind. Love individuality, especially in young people, Love expression and the need to articulate those things that send you crazy.
    Repeat…repeat…You – are totally F’cking awsome!

    • Wow thank you so much! 🙂 If I could make any suggestions on what you might read first it would be simply my first post called “There Once was a Girl Who Lived in a Box” (you can find it under poetry). It is the post that describes both me and this blog the best and is the work I am most proud of to date! Thank you again for stopping by and reading I hope you find some of my ramblings interesting enough to keep checking in!

  38. daffodillia says:

    Make no doubt, of all the blogs I have come across so far, this is the closest to me! lol and I will certainly be keeping an eye.

  39. maddiefiles says:

    Lindsay, I don’t think you’re even the tiniest bit crazy; thinking out of the box is what we were meant to do – it’s what gets society up and going, produces positive change! Keep it up! And, thanks for adding me to your blogroll! Peace, Everymom, aka The Original “Maddie”

  40. katemeadows says:

    Thank you for following my blog. Being twenty-something can be quite a confusing – yet entirely fun time. Love your wings – and keep flying.

  41. GreenCheata says:

    I just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for a blog award. There’s no pressure or anything you don’t even have to accept if you don’t want to. I just wanted you to know that I love your poetry, and I thought of you when I was nominating people. Keep up the lovely poems! Here’s the link to the nomination, http://greencheata.wordpress.com/2012/07/13/fantastic-friday-2/

  42. SBar says:

    Glad you found my blog post about Jefferson’s quote of value. As for my opinion to you on wisdom, it is not about your age, but rather wisdom comes from knowledge, skill and Christ. If you want me to find the versus, hit me up. Furthermore, read some material from Randy Pausch in his last lecture, I have found additional wisdom there.

  43. Tonks says:

    I read the whole page, and it was awesome, but what really made me clicked the follow button was the box quote by yourself. Will look forward to your posts!
