A LOOK
INSIDE MY HEAD

When I was only ten, I learned how to type on a manual typewriter. A-S-D-F...J-K-L-;...since then, I’ve written over 2,000 blogs and enjoy sharing my words with others. 

As a writer, you see the world around you as a story waiting to be told. Every experience acts as an actor for this beautiful story we’re fortunate enough to call “life.” I hope you appreciate my writing as much as I’ve had, living the story. 

Twenty 7

Writing
"I could tell you my adventures—beginning from this morning," said Alice a little timidly: "but it's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then." That's one of my favorite quotes. In a lot of ways, I'm able to relate to it. Yesterday was my birthday..

Unconditional

Writing
I grew up hearing the term "unconditional love" on many occasions; preached from behind the pulpit, discussed during "table time" every morning, or championed in stories, movies, or books. It wasn't until I got older that I began to understand what it truly meant to have unconditional love. It has.

Happiness

Writing
One of my [least] favorite childhood movies was Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. A family classic, I loved every moment of the movie except for the evil villain, with the long nose, who captured children with the lure of a candy wagon. My family did a remarkable job of enjoying movies that involved.

Out of the boat

Writing
I recently read an article that discussed the way painful experiences have a way of creating depth in our hearts. Similar to the way a rock bore digs itself through solid rock, our experiences have a way of forging depth within our hearts that often looks like gaping holes. Without.

Roots

Writing
I've gotten to know a lot of people who have varying levels of connection with their family. Some are close; best friends and together through thick and thin. Others have had conflicts or situations that have separated and distanced the family to the point of 'family' being more like a.

Light Weight

Writing
With the Mr. Olympia competition coming up, I wanted to jot down a few notes I've learned from Kai Greene - paired with some of the reflection I've had after accomplishing a goal I've set to do for several years; deadlift 500+ pounds of weight. One of my favorite Kai.

Brother

Writing
Hey Blood Brother... It doesn't seem that long ago that my brother, Mark, and I were driving along Duvall Road and headed to Waffle House. We'd have the windows down and sing our hearts out to Alice Cooper, before filling up on a kings feast of artery-clogging breakfast items. It.

Epic

Writing
This morning, I sat down to read the book Epic, a book about the journey of life and our internal desire to be a part of something greater. One of my favorite quotes referenced The Magician's Nephew as the characters witnessed the forming of the stars. "Glory be! I'd ha' been a better man.

Inner Focus

Writing
In our face-down-glued-to-our-cellphone culture, it's very easy to feel as if we are connected to the world; we have instant access to our 'friends', family, world events, and cultural events of significance. I don't have to get off of my couch to have a snapshot view of everything that's going.

Gold

Writing
"There's gold to be found in the morning" was a quote I've heard many times, in some variant or another. As I've been waking up earlier during the weekdays, I'm finding that the morning hours offer a lot of productivity and quiet times to think and prepare for the upcoming.
