To Those Who Want to Quit Doing Right

Posted by on Apr 18, 2018 in Faith, Hope, and Love

Please don’t.

Don’t quit.

Just keep going. Please.

Yes, I’m asking you—wherever you are and whatever your battlefront is, hold the line. The world needs people like you. The world needs folks willing to fight. The world needs you to keep making it that much better.

Even for just a little longer. Stay strong. Whatever strength you have, rally it for one more day. Just one. Don’t worry about tomorrow, its challenges, its trials, and its temptations. Don’t worry about yesterday, the shortcomings, the missed opportunities, and the regrets.

Focus on Today.

End of Week Reflections 04/14/2018

Posted by on Apr 14, 2018 in Weekly Debriefs 2018

Not sure what’s going on with my face in the photo…

So, earlier this week, I did this impromptu post to encourage anyone out there who’s hurting. It got liked and retweeted. I feel like it did some good. That being said, seems this blog is worthwhile for more than my weekly check-ins. To what degree, I’m unsure; but the fact that anyone is reading and thinks it’s worth sharing with others is encouraging to know. Here’s hoping I can continue to bring some benefit my little corner of the net.

As far as the rest of the week, read on!

To Those Who Are Hurting

Posted by on Apr 11, 2018 in Faith, Hope, and Love

I have been there, too. The trenches of pain. Of Angst. Of feeling misunderstood and unwanted. I know what it means to feel lost and afraid.  I know how it feels to awake and want nothing more than the day to be finished. I know the voice behind the lies that the world would be better off without me in it; oftentimes, it’s my own, and that’s the scariest part.

if you are in pain, you are not alone.

Oh the thoughts…

We are moving through 2018 at a breakneck pace!!! It’s already April and finally beginning to feel like spring! I believe it’s a time of renewed nature outdoors and renewed determination in the mind and heart. I continue to tinker with the weekly debrief format, so things may look a bit wonky for this month, but hey sometimes progress is like that.

Let’s get it poppin’

QUARTER DEBRIEF : April 5, 2018

Posted by on Apr 5, 2018 in Faith, Hope, and Love, Weekly Debriefs 2018

MARCH 31, 2018 was the end of the calendar quarter. I tried to spend it using routines, going to therapy, and applying a variety of tools in order to better manage anxiety, get my emotions a bit more balanced, and overall improve the life of not only myself but my dear wife and son.

Bottom Line: The jury’s still out, but I feel like there’s real progress being made week-over-week. Further, I’ve had breakthrough’s of sorts that I think will yield compounded dividends in the calendar quarters to come as well as the years to follow.
