One of my personal mottos in life is this:
Work hard. Play harder.
That couldn’t be more true at this point in time for me. Why? Today marks working 18 consecutive days in a row and that includes my day job and my weekend gig. If y’all are curious to know what I do, I’ll explain Read more…
I was at work and some customers had black ash crosses (lol*) on their foreheads. It signaled to me that today is Ash Wednesday. I’m usually on top of my religious game. Anyways, I alerted my friends and family and asked what they’re giving up, if anything. I’ve been giving something up every year consecutively […]
Look around. Everyone and everything you see, including the sun, will one day cease to exist. That goes for all the abstract things, too, including your job and love and the job I love. I’m not being cynical; I’m being realistic. Like a fun-sized candy bar, I’ll make this slice short and sweet. This topic […]
Upon reading the title of this slice, you’re probably answering to yourself, “No, I don’t.” Before answering without knowing the context I speak of, consider this: People talk all the time without any action.

Whatever doesn’t kill us only makes us stronger. These were some uplifting thoughts I had during this bad week. But instead of […]
If God brings you to it, He’ll bring you through it.
This is a slice from my old blog that I’ll be posting to honor Throwback Thursday. Originally posted on 11.7.11 Imagine if you had a house where you can only open a window if the doors are closed – and vice versa. Take a second to ponder about this. Really think on how it would […]
Greetings, loyal readers! Welcome to another edition of WFG Wednesdays! In this business, many people succeed by sticking with the system. However, people often get discouraged for many reasons. It’s easy; too easy actually. What’s worse is people not even trying. The truth is that people treat life the same way. I get it. Sometimes, […]
I alwaze wanted to keep my wisdom teeth. I figured that I would die with them still intact and untouched. But as fate would have it, that wasn’t the case. On the morning of 2.20.15, I had my wisdom teeth pulled. The weeks leading up to it, I asked many people if they have had […]
