There was a time in my life when all used to adore you even for the teeny weeny things. People shower their praises on you so much so that you begin to feel like that moment is unstoppable, it will go on forever. How I didn’t realize that people change, situations grow worse and you still never learn from any of it and always look forward for that past adulation. My life has hung on what others thought about me. If people said something good I’m happy. But if it turns out to be bad, I start hating myself. So much of hatred and rejection I harbored in my mind that there were times when I thought I should put an end to the misery I’m going through. But hope does plays strange games with me. I’m not gutsy to even act upon my quick fix to pain. I felt this is the only way out. Life never improved. I never improved. I’m still lying on that road, beaten and broken. Some walk past me. A few stop and most jeer seeing my “well deserved doom”.This is it. I can’t go on again. I’m giving up.
A beautiful piece worth your time 🙂
Before I start this, I want to make something clear. This post is not coming from a man who has had an easy time his whole life with women. In fact, I have had my heart broken more times than I care to admit. I have shed tears, been betrayed in the worst of ways and have been made to feel unimportant, almost to the point where I thought I didn’t exist. And even through all of this, I can still put my heart on the line for women because I believe in one fundamental reality.
Women are beautiful.
Last night, one of my best friends sent me an article and asked for my thoughts. So I opened it up and read the first line. “I’m just gonna come out and say it: I love insecure women.” I closed my eyes, took a deep breath and continued reading on for…

Haven’t you always wanted to find a door that leads into Narnia?
After watching a cartoon version of The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe at the age of six, I was constantly on the lookout for any possible portals into the world of Narnia. Being an expert at finding where my Mom hid our Christmas presents, I thought finding the entrance to an entire world would be a cinch. Closets, laundry doors, dangerous trap doors under stages—all were potential candidates. Constant vigilance!
But after twenty years of searching, I never discovered a portal to a magical world. And yet, a few years ago I had an awakening so powerful it was almost like finding a new world.
While living with a host family in Moscow, Russia, I went to see the movie Prince Caspian. The cinematography was stunning, and while watching the movie I could feel that familiar, childish longing…

This quote and perspective might go down as ONE OF the shortest, most simple and yet empowering ideas of all time. Have you ever felt wronged? Disrespected? Under valued? Under appreciated? Neglected?
Of course you have! We all have!
Maybe we need to arm ourselves with the idea, that everything negative happening to us, is just more fuel towards our personal greatness.
One of the reasons why this thought is so empowering is because most people who have struggles, challenges, obstacles and toxic people in their life, lack the motivation to change, grow and succeed. They become victims. They think that this is just how their life is. There reality is based on the words, actions and opinions of others. That is no way to live.
If your having a hard time finding the motivation. If you can’t find the reasons to do it…

Do us all a favor! Don’t just shine, SHINE BRIGHT! In order to shine we need to accept where we are in life and actively pursue where were want to be and how we want to feel; regardless of how good or bad things currently are.
People who are the happiest, the most energetic, the ones who just seem to shine; know who they are, what they are here for and their emotions represent that. How they show up in the world – represents that.
I do not know you, but I know you have something to give. We all do. Your job is to find out what it is and give it. If you do not, we all get let down, we are all deprived – we all suffer.
Everyday, moment by moment we have the ability to decide what we are gong to give. Do…

Having been married only a year and a half, I’ve recently come to the conclusion that marriage isn’t for me.
Now before you start making assumptions, keep reading.
I met my wife in high school when we were 15 years old. We were friends for ten years until…until we decided no longer wanted to be just friends. 🙂 I strongly recommend that best friends fall in love. Good times will be had by all.
Nevertheless, falling in love with my best friend did not prevent me from having certain fears and anxieties about getting married. The nearer Kim and I approached the decision to marry, the more I was filled with a paralyzing fear. Was I ready? Was I making the right choice? Was Kim the right person to marry? Would she make me happy?
Then, one fateful night, I shared these thoughts and concerns with my dad.
