Gratitude

Gratitude With the days getting shorter and winter approaching, I began thinking about the winter blues. Maybe it was the cool, dreary weather, but I began to dwell on what I had lost. I could feel my mood deteriorating. It was a new experience for me to recognize exactly what was happening. I never used to be that attentive to my feelings. Could it be from living a very complacent life?Hey, look at me, I’m growing. Sorry, back to the…

Hangover Cures

Hangover Cures

Hangovers The headache, the stomach that feels like it’s been pickled, the wasted day. There’s nothing fun about a hangover. Ten years ago this was not a huge issue for me, but it seems like every year that goes by, it just gets worse. I will say this before I get in any further, any of you out there reading this saying “I never get hungover.” I am happy for you, but please stop telling me that when I am…

Let Me Tell Ya Something

Let Me Tell Ya Something

Memories The other day I had finished playing a double-header to close out the regular season. Like most slo-pitch teams, we sat around with a couple of beers after the game and shot the shit. I’m not sure how or why it came up, but we started talking about a couple of memories from our younger years. Not only did it make me feel old and make me wonder where the time went. It also made me laugh at how…

How Did You Love?

How Did You Love?

“No one gets out alive, every day is do or die The one thing you leave behind Is how did you love, how did you love?” Lyrics from one of many great songs from Shinedown’s album Threat to Survival.

Embrace The Idiot

Embrace The Idiot

Throughout the years Jeremy and I have come up with some pretty idiotic ideas. Some sounded more idiotic than others, but the argument could be made that embracing the idiot made them awesome.

Turns out that when you add bacon to a bottle of vodka, you end up with a terrible bottle of vodka. Looking back, a better idea would…

Searching for Greatness

Searching for Greatness

“Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.” – William Shakespeare What is greatness?  How can I find greatness?  How will I know if I’ve found it, and am I talented enough to achieve greatness? These are questions I ask myself far too often. Let’s begin with the easy question of what greatness is.  People have many different perspectives of greatness and my view of it may differ from your…

The Power of Perspective

The Power of Perspective

Perspective… Perspective can be a very powerful thing when trying to control our feelings about something. By changing the part of the experience that we focus on, we can change the way we feel about that experience. The Easy Example… I was very fortunate to have a seven week honeymoon in the south Pacific. We did a lot of amazing things on our trip. We swam with dolphins, hiked up a glacier, and flew to the top of a mountain….
