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…

Proud Daddy

Proud is an understatement, my heart is absolutly filled to the top with all sorts of feels. If my house is anything like everyother parents then dinner time can be a pain in the ass. Thing 1 – I don’t want to eat that. Thing 2 – Throws fork on the ground Thing 3- Crying…

Kindergarten

Orientation day! Honestly I let my anxiety and hard feelings towards school get in the way a bit today. My daughter is so excited to start her journey into the world of learning. As a father I’m excited for her. All hard feelings aside, there is a lot to learn in grade school and I’m…

Migraines Part Deux

Ok so, awhile back I wrote this article about migraines. This is a follow up post that I have been contemplating for awhile now. I told myself when I started this blog that I was going to be 100 percent me, I’m not entirely sure why I was really contemplating anything. I have found 80…

Motivation Station

What motivates you? what motivates me? This is a question that I am currently having to ask myself. When I started this blog I felt as if I could write every day. This past few weeks however, time seems to simply just slip away. Am I doing something different? Should I do something different? Did…

My One

It’s as simple as this, my wife is the reason I am here today. Not all fairy tales are kissing frogs and flying donkeys. On the outside I learned how to be confident and to some even well put together. In reality I was an alcohol fueled freight train filled with narcotics and a hidden…

The Key To Life

Do you want to know what the key to life is ? I have a hint, it’s not in this post. Everyone, and I mean everyone, is the key holder to their own life. My life and your life are very different, just like my house key won’t unlock your door and hopefully yours doesn’t…

The little things.

The little things might possibly be one of the most important aspects of life, and very few people seem to take them in. I regret very little in my life, but not taking in the small visit with Grandma here and the “missed” dinner there, is something I can never get back. This weekend we…

My Pride Land

When the hell did I get so God damn soft? One of my all-time favourite movies growing up was Lion King (hopefully I don’t get in shit for using the title). I and my wife share the love of the movie, it was actually a very vital piece to the puzzle in how I turned…
