Strong Habits

Do you ever think about everything you do over the course of a given day? It is pretty amazing when you break it all down. You may start your morning by waking up, making your bed, brushing your teeth, taking a shower, eating breakfast, making your lunch, and heading to work or school. You may…

Accept the Challenge

As I put together my Goal Sheet for 2017, I was trying to think about what I wanted to accomplish in the coming year. There are many things that will be changing in my life (like moving to a new place and getting married), which will require a focus all their own, but in reality,…

Chapter Goals

Our goals define how we live our lives. They give us direction and destinations. They give us an outline of how to get to where we want to go. They give us comfort and purpose as we figure out who we are. I have always been thinking about my future goals and what I want…

Content with Your Life

This new year has already brought a number of blessings and insights. My mind and schedule have been occupied in the best ways and it is nice to have to create time for things such as writing and reading. It has been incredible getting people contributing guest articles and the life experiences/advice everyone has shared…

Honor Your Choices

Do you ever come across quotes which shake you to your core? They may be in a book or magazine article you are reading, an online publication you frequent, your various social media pages, or on a billboard you pass all the time. These quotes are everywhere and it is almost as if these words,…

Brick By Brick

People are complex beings, beings who have a vast number of intricacies in their make-up. These unique traits help develop things like character, mindset, decision-making, and overall outlook on life and self. In fewer words, intricacies are responsible for making people who they are. While you may share views and similarities with your fellow man…

Venture Out

It is the day before Thanksgiving and as an outsider looking in, anyone would be able to take a look at my life and tell me how blessed I am. I am in a much different place than I was a year ago. I have solid relationships with my close friends and family. I am…

Talk About It

In a world where we are more connected than we have ever been, real communication feels like a lost art. We continue to hide behind a virtual reality of texting and social media to say what we are really feeling inside, often saying things we would never say to someone’s face/admit ourselves or portraying to…

Why

“Why”, our favorite question to ask as a little kid. You cannot go outside and play right now. Why? You cannot have dessert tonight. Why? No more television or video games until your homework is finished. Why? It seemed like no matter what statement an authoritative figure made towards us, we were always combatting anything…

Go With Your Gut

Hey all! It has been such an eventful week with everything going on. Working, baseball practice, continuing to develop and move forward with the brand, seeing friends, celebrating my 26th birthday, and every day life events has made the past several days fly by in the best way possible. For this post, I want to…

Blessed Over Stressed

Stress is a very common theme in our society today, although what we stress about varies. We stress about our jobs, whether it be about who we work with, liking or not liking what we are doing, having too many responsibilities to juggle, not making enough money or simply wanting to feel more satisfaction in…

Embrace Your Journey

Since taking a somewhat extended break from writing, I am with you today in a completely different place than I was in February. As a coach, I was part of a baseball team that took home a Regional title and a second place finish in the American Legion State Championship, a first in program history….
