New Year, New You

Here’s to a new year, a new you and a new me! I spent a lot of time thinking since the beginning of 2015 about what I wanted to change. Of course, there are all the usual suspects such as “being a better guy“, “losing some weight“, “return to running” (pending a stupid little knee…

Tackle The Sky

Finding something new to challenge yourself is an exciting task.

When you start to believe that you can really do anything you set your mind to, the sky is the limit!

How to “tackle the sky” is a challenge for me.

Dealing With Anxiety

Sorry, couldn’t resist a goofy picture of a cat…

This post has a more serious tone than most. Especially for me.

If you’ve ever met me, you know I can be an emotional roller coaster. That is likely an understatement.

On the flip side of that coin, if your are happy and…

Renaissance Of Self

I believe that our world suffered a shock to it’s system after the recession hit us several years ago. Well, at least my world did. Ten years ago my focus was financial success. The almighty dollar drove all. It was the symbol of business success. This was the case for many an American. But the…

Bring Me To Life

I’ve had a bit of a challenge being consistent in my writing. To be clear, I write more for my own benefit than anything else. It’s my way of putting my random thoughts to pen and trying to make sense of them. Now for my most recent mental rumblings… _____________________________ My topic today is life:…
