The occupation of living uprightly is not a part-time position, nor one to be taken lightly. Warriors never lose their fighting mindset. Rather, they take it with them into every element of their life; fighting to the death for their beliefs, values, and loved ones. Yesterday, I had an encounter that taught me an incredibly […]

“The man knew what he wanted and went out and got it! Walked into a jungle and comes out, the age of twenty-one, and he’s rich!” The world is changing. Whether we like to admit it or not, we cannot help but stand and admire the beauty of the things which are, which previously were […]

I’ve noticed that life seems to offer a strange ability for us to discover our own personal resurrection and rebirthing, should we be willing to try and pick ourselves up from where we have fallen. Few things are more refreshing than a fresh opportunity, idea, or individual. While it’s a rare occurrence for many of […]

Monday happens to be my favorite day of the week. The idea of starting fresh, renewing work from the previous week, and finally having the opportunity to clamp, once again, at the bit of the cart you’ve been pulling is very refreshing. Today is a new day. This is a new week. If you have […]

“We all die. We won’t live forever. It’s our job to create something that will.” “Steve, do you prefer thinking that things could be worse or that things could be better?” “I prefer thinking ‘things are.’” An appropriate response to a question that already had an answer.

“The mind is its own place, and in itself, can make a Heaven out of Hell, a Hell of Heaven.” When I first read that quote, it stuck out to me because I immediately thought of numerous encounters where it proved itself to be true/applicable. Looking back at the period of time I was in […]

Listening to music with a pair of sub-par headphones, I’m keenly aware of what I’m missing out on, as I understand the quality behind a pair of top-of-the-line headphones. Unfortunately, that’s neither here nor there, as Mark left his favorite pair of headphones on an airplane, and my primary pair of headphones decided to poop […]

When a child trips and falls, it is the pleasure of the father to help his child back on his/her feet. As the child again falls, tears flow freely; not from pain, but from frustration at falling again. The father once again reached a hand out to pick up the child, to the fathers delight. […]
