Excuses are addicting.

Or maybe a disease.

Is there a cure?

And if there is, how do we gain access?

Snow on the ground with freezing temperatures.

It’s too cold to eat ice cream.

Rejoice in everything: our struggles, our demons, our awareness, our victories


Dear son, honestly never thought your dad would make it 100 consecutive days writing five daily blog posts about Life’s Big Choices.

Never thought he’d abandon drinking everyday either.

Crazy what motivation and purpose does to help one become decently organized.

Dear son, we’ve talked about all too common approval addiction in society and how the parental focus for us has been on you finding your worth in what you have accomplished, not in what someone else is pleased with.

It is in our self awareness that the approval from others is no longer necessary, nor even desired.

This, son, is freedom.

And joy.

Happiest of days.
