A GENTLEMAN

I have many friends who have different beliefs and I'm never trying to sway you from what you believe in. I'm only speaking from my own personal experience & what God is doing in my life in hopes that by you reading this, you can find even a little bit of Encouragement with what you're going through.

I'm trying to create something that I really believe in my heart can benefit a lot of people. I'm in the early stages and I'm putting the work in but I'll be honest to say that lately there have been moments when doubt has come up in my mind. It happens to all of us.  It's that voice in your head that says you don't have what it takes or you’...

With everything the world sometimes throws at us, it's easy to get caught up in the race for success. We hustle, hustle, hustle,  & we fight, fight, fight. I'm so guilty of it. And what ends up happening, to me at least, is I eventually break down because I've put so much on my shoulders, which causes unnecessary stress.

I do this to myself because of the memories I have growing up and seeing my mom struggle financially.  I remember the lights being turned off because we didn’t pay the bill.  I remember wearing old clothes because we couldn’t afford new ones.  And I remember riding in my mom’s old beat up red Bonneville that never had any...

There I go again, constantly thinking about my next stage of life.  The stage where I finally get my dream job, have a BIG steady income, and get to move into a nice house and go on exotic vacations with my family.   It’s the American dream and it’s what a lot of us hope for, work towards, and if you’re like me, worry about.

It’s good to have goals and work towards achieving those goals.  But what’s funny about us constantly thinking about our hopes and dreams for the future is that we may miss out on the little things in our lives that are the most meaningful.  Moments like the ones below that continually remind us what’s most im...

-THE SHIFT-

Relationships are funny man - 2 people from different backgrounds, different families, and totally different ways of doing things coming together to hopefully find the 1 gift that everyone wants in life – Love.  

Then come’s the marriage, and the career, and the babies.  It can be a little intimidating but it’s what a lot of us hope for someday.

What most young couples, especially us men, don’t understand though are the sacrifices that need to happen in order for a relationship to work and thrive.  Sacrifices like thinking of your partner before thinking of yourself.    

Now I am in no way sitting here trying to give...
