Drift With the Wind

As the new year, and new decade begin to break open, so do the feelings of new possibilities.

There’s something refreshing about a new beginning. You feel hopeful, and I’m certainly no exception to this; although it’s been a while since I’ve had the feeling. There was a time when I thought my dreaming days were over. A while back I decided to start this blog, I needed to, even with no clear direction for it.

I could just make out the shape of the thing, but it wasn’t quite in focus yet… and it became a journey of putting some very real and scary pieces of myself out there in the open where I had no choice but to deal with them. Those parts of me which were unhealed, they were stopping me from moving forward and the only person who could clear this hurdle was me.

And I’m here to say that I did the work. It was scary, but it was worth it. Those parts of me are not gone. I wear the scars as badges. But I’m ready to move onward up the mountain free from the burdens.

So full circle, I come to find that the vision is becoming clearer. And I hope that you’ll stick with me here to see this vision become clear to you.

The Feather’s Edge.

There was a woman in my life who, to this day, although she is now an angel, teaches me life lessons. I’m sure in a future post I will love to tell you more about her. But for now I’ll keep it short…She used to tell me that her father said when you saw a white feather it meant that someone soon would pass away, or that someone’s spirit was visiting you. Now when I see a white feather I feel like it’s her. And one of the biggest lessons she taught me was that you never know what can happen, you’re always on the edge of the feather… life can blow you in any direction, at any time.

I’m ready to drift with the wind.

Ready to spread my wings and soar! Life is great with my amazing wife, 3 children, 2 nephews and 3 pups. I am imperfect, I find a flaw in myself every day, I am human. I'm striving to change that.

  1. I’m not a reader…. but I enjoyed reading this. You say you find flaws with yourself everyday…. but the kindness you have for others cancel them out. Grab hold of your inner strength ❤️
