I have spent most of my life trying to become a better person. When I got started in this world, I didn’t really have a good example of what was right or wrong. I knew certain things didn’t really vibe with the world at large, but there was no one there teaching me how to deal with people. It was kind of a crap shoot for me. The only way I ever learned what was normal or socially acceptable was through trial and error.
It took me the better part of 3 decades, one failed marriage, and multiple jobs to really get a footing on what being a real human being was all about. by that time i had screwed up so many times it was ridiculous. Not only that, but I had screwed over relationships with people that were genuinely trying to help me. Honestly, most of it was out of ignorance.
Then, one day, something clicked. I was forced to get a grip on my anger and my life. I realized that if I wanted a better life, I was going to have to put in the work and make it happen. No one was going to just hand me life on a silver platter. After years of turmoil and struggle, I feel like I am starting to make some headway.
I focus my life on positive things these days. I write and podcast a lot. Of course I still have the day job to help keep the family in good standing with money and health care, but I really try to do a lot of creative things. I have been blessed with a mind that is very inventive and full of ingenuity. I am all about DOING stuff and not just talking about it. I feel as though you can quickly overthink things and get lost in the “what ifs”. That type of thinking can drag you and those around you down.
Most importantly I am a husband and a father. The 2 ladies in my life sit at the top of the list for me. Everything I do is to propel our family forward and to help remove us from the 8-to-5 grind of day to day life.
