Go With the Flow of Your Emotions Jan 06, 2021

True courage is the willingness to feel every emotion. Consider this emotional courage — the only true courage. I misunderstood this for a long time. 

Courage isn’t the absence of emotion, as I was taught as a little boy, a Marine, and an adult man.

The absence of emotion,...

I Choose to Not Care Dec 16, 2020

It’s not that I don’t care about chaos in the world…

It’s that I can’t care and still live the life I desire to live.

The Stories We Tell Ourselves Dec 09, 2020

Byron Katie once said, “When we believe in our thoughts, when we tell ourselves a story, we suffer. When there’s no story, there’s no suffering.”

Why Not Choose Easy? Dec 03, 2020

Do you believe you can have it all without killing yourself?

Create Your Own Support System Nov 25, 2020
Desire is natural and healthy. Desire or wanting more is genetic hunger, a life expanding itself through you. If you pretend you don’t want more, or that you don’t desire things, you’re only lying to yourself.

My Beautifully Glorified Life Nov 18, 2020

I’ve got to be honest…

I’ve never found glory in hard work, working hard, or sacrifice. I’ve worked hard and took the path of most resistance many times in my life, but it sucked and deep down I knew I was acting out others’ ideas of what life’s...

Life Loves You Nov 12, 2020

Life loves you. It really does. Life's your biggest fan. Your prayers are already answered.

You might not believe it, but life wants the very best for you, and life wants you to have whatever you want.

Transparency Resolves Shame Nov 04, 2020

I’ve lived in shame of my body.

I’ve lived in shame of my hidden gluttonous urges.

I’ve lived in shame of my memory of insignificant details.

This is THE WORK Oct 28, 2020

You are not here to live anyone else’s vision for your life. Yes, you play a part in others’ stories, but you are not here to be whom they decide you can be.

You get to figure that out all on your own, and then others get to decide if they want to continue in your story.

Life Can Be Easy Oct 07, 2020

Life is not about unnecessary stress and struggle. As human beings, we are addicted. We seek it out.

Life never needs to be hard and you don’t need to sacrifice your life, health, or family for your dreams and your enjoyment.

Seriously.

Do only things you love. Get clear about what you...

We ARE Divine Sep 30, 2020

I’ve struggled with many things in my life, but most of my stress and struggles revolved around food, money, sex, and God.

Let me explain.

 

I Wasn’t Worthy
