Do What Makes YOU Happy

What makes you happy? I’m talking genuinely happy. For some it’s friends and family, others enjoy pure solitude. Now let’s think about what can turn our days around without even noticing. There are two things in my life that change my mood almost instantly. I’m going to give you a hint. It’s actually not my…

Fathers Day

Ok so I’m a few days late. In all honesty, I tried to get this out on Fathers Day I really did. Here’s the deal: life happened. I got hit with three days of depression and migraines. Now I’m not here to make excuses, but shit happens. It took me three days to get out…

Get Outside!

Who else grew up hearing these two words (in my case more often four) GET YOUR ASS OUTSIDE. Now I know these days we can’t use the word outside because it’s not location neutral but for all intensive purposes it’s ok. A buddy of mine approached me today and we had a good discussion about…
