Rise through the trials.

You have two options, make moves or make excuses.  Every single person on this earth no matter where they are born, what the color of their skin is, what socioeconomic status they have; WILL have trials in life.  Yes, some will have more struggles than others, but as humans, we share the common reality of […]

Time goes by quick! Make sure and get out there and hold on tight!

It’s a fast moving train you know; you need to grab on tight and don’t let go. It’ll be scary sometimes, exhilarating others, and painful as well.  Don’t let go. No matter what, Don’t let go.  Hold on to the little moments with those you love. Embrace the simple joys, the quiet moments, the smiles, […]

Take time to breathe in all life has to offer!

We are busier than we have ever been.We love being busy.We are proud of our busy. Up early, no time for breakfast, off to the office. 10 hours straight of meetings, calls, whatever.Hit the clock, out the door, sit in traffic. Get home, grab little Johnny, get back into the car, soccer practice you know.Grocery store, post […]

Life needs not be so complicated

We have a “way” don’t we? A way of taking even the simplest things in life and “complicating” them to the point of difficulty and struggle.  Why do we do this? Why do we take beautifully simple things and make them hard? Why do we brush off simple joys in life as nonimportant, or not […]

Find your purpose hidden deep inside and embrace it

It’s hard to find. It’s clouded by perception. It’s looked over by comparison. It’s missed by distraction. It’s passed over by misunderstanding.  We don’t look inside to understand our purpose.  We look outside; we look at our neighbors, our devices, our televisions.  We measure ourselves to standards of fake posts from perfect lives. We evaluate […]

Time, instruction, & wisdom are some of the greatest gifts you can pass on

Work work work work. I’m going to work hard, put in the 60 – 70 hour weeks so I can earn money to provide the kind of life my kids deserve. The Kind of life I want them to have, the kind of life I didn’t have. I just need to put in the time […]

Find someone that makes the work worth it

There are a few that make it on their own; they strive, struggle, work, and persevere. Eventually they do “make it” whatever the heck that even means. They reach the top and achieve their goals, they did it. Alone, at the top with no one to celebrate with. Why? Leadership is a lonely enough road, […]

Legacy. Make sure what you spend your time on will matter.

8760. That’s it. That’s all the hours you get in 1 year. 8760 doesn’t seem like much. It probably doesn’t seem like much because it’s not. It’s not much time at all.  What’s worse if you spend 8 hours sleeping, and 8 hours working each day, that leaves you a measly 2920 hours left to […]

Leap over your inhibitions.

Sometimes we hit walls. Sometimes we come up to barriers that we can’t seem to pass. When you come to the “impasse” you have a choice. You might, at first, feel as though you do not have a choice. This is natural, I mean after all you are stuck right there, between that freaking rock, […]

Actually having teenagers doesn’t suck.

I’m not saying it’s not going to be hard though. “I freaking can’t WAIT until my kids are out of the house” she said with a serious look, the kind of look that you know you shouldn’t question. It was the same response I’ve gotten many times. Here’s another one, “How old are your kids?” […]
