‘Sup, earth.

Aaaaaand, we now live in the month of July, having officially crossed the halfway mark of 2018. Seriously, how in the world is live passing this quickly? I understand it has to do with relativity and the fact that as we get older each year is a smaller percentage of our lives; ergo, they seem to pass by far more quickly even though time itself has been constant.

But this science doesn’t always help. It just means that next year is going to go even faster, and I have too much I’m still trying to do.

I feel like I need a freeze-ray, for time: The TimeFreezer. There’s a movie I can pitch.

I got nothing but smiles once I am into my morning routine!

So, I am going to warn you in advance: proceed at your own risk. This week, things got a bit dark. I do that.

On a light note before that looming cloud drops its maelstrom, I think it’s worth reminding all of us that God is real and perfect. Whatever he allows to happen, whatever he chooses to do, however he chooses to do it—he’s making the right call. Every. Single. Time. That’s what makes him God.

What up, folks?

I’m going to start this post with a motto; maybe it’s a mantra, I don’t know, but here it is: Feelings are always real, but they are not always true. You can feel a thousand things that you are not. Not really. Knowing this is vital. It’s essential. It enables you to actual whatever is you’re feeling, then test it against where you really are, who you are, and what you are truly experiencing—not just feeling.

Food for thought for a Saturday. Here’s some more.

Why is my shirt glowing?!?!?!

So, this is Father’s Day weekend.

I gotta be honest; I love being a daddy. I don’t do it perfectly; no one does. And I don’t expect to. But I love my role, in all of its hardships and challenges—the exhaustion, the frustration, and the constant uncertainty. Regardless of the valleys, I savor time on the hills, and I earnestly believe that it’s going to continue being a wonderful journey for days, months, and years to come!!!

Therefore, I continue to seek improvement. I am trying to understand myself better so that I can become the best version of myself possible, for the benefit of our household and the world.

Here’s how this week went in that regard.

36 years-old now…

So, last time I posted I was 35 years-old. This will be my first blog post at the age of 36. I apologize for missing last Saturday, but the birthday festivities got the best of me, and I failed on a number of fronts, not just this one. It was not necessarily the best way to kick off the new year of living. I should probably do a full post about turning 36—about where I am in my life, how I see my past, and where I see myself going. Frankly, I’m not sure how that would go, but I am contemplating it.

This blog has been a very mixed bag in 2018. In one sense it’s been great that I’ve been getting any posts in at all; but in another, it’s very sad that I have not been on able to maintain consistency regarding valuable, individual posts. Here’s hoping that I will get to that point. We shall see together.

But enough of that, let’s talk about this past week.
