Daily Blog Post My daughter turns six!

I cannot believe my little girl is already six years old. When I was younger everyone told me time fly’s when you’re older and it certainly does. These times are filled with so much drama and negative headlines. It’s nice to have my own space full of peace and love. My daughter is responsible for a lot of that. She is so sweet, intelligent and gifted in many things. I’m so honored to be her father. I’m so blessed to have this family. Happy birthday Lilli!

I made a song right after she was born dedicated to her and her mother. They were a huge part in getting me back on track. I will love these two ladies for the rest of my life.

Daily Blog post The stay at home dad

Never underestimate the stay at home father. I know it isn’t traditional and even the most modern people some times make assumptions that just aren’t true. I take this personally myself because I have been a stay at home parent for last six years! It isn’t always easy but this has been an awesome experience. How did I get here? Well that is a long and personal story.

When I first got married the plan was my wife stays home and earns her degree while I work. That was the plan however I worked construction and one thing I’ve learned while working construction is you will eventually get laid off. It also doesn’t help someone with a criminal background. I made a very stupid mistake when I was 18 and it cost me a lot more than I realized at the time.

I was automatically turned away from positions because of it and I lost multiple positions because of it. I always say to myself when my kids are older they will know the cost of having a bad attitude or negative outlook could end their future. I will also show them the 98 job applications that I was red flagged on and turned down immediately. I have more to offer this world though and thankfully my ambition kept me going.

I’m so blessed to have my wife. The most supportive woman I have ever met. I’m not just a babysitter or caretaker. I help my father who isn’t in good health with his side jobs and the land upkeep. I also have my own business that does generate an income. So thats one of the huge reasons it doesn’t bother me. I’m also a person who some would describe as a fitness nut. I lift weights regularly and I watch what I eat.

In conclusion stay at home dads are cool and I have no problem with being one. I’m proud of the man I became and I believe my family and friends are too. They know where I was headed and how far I’ve come. Have a blessed day.

Daily Blog Post Stay Motivated

These days with the news and social media. It seems like everything is negative and hopeless. I feel so blessed to have my wife and kids. They keep me strong and motivated to continue moving towards my goals. I also have great friends that are just as ambitious as myself. This is important to any artist or business owner. Having positive like minded individuals around you is like a cheat code for real.

Everyone these days is into something and presenting themselves as a business or an artist etc. However a lot of them lack the motivation or desire to keep grinding. I myself have struggled but I will never quit! We have to understand that no one became over night celebrities. It may seem that way but look up their stories you will realize how much work and time it took to get there.

My goals are simple get and stay in shape. Become a successful artist and business owner. Notice I didn’t say famous! I think a lot of times people get hung up on that. I understand but fame isn’t the ultimate goal. My family being set for life and having the tools to advance are the goals. Make sure you are surrounding yourself with people who motivate, educate, and provide some sort of value to you as an individual.

Have a blessed day!
