We truly live in strange times. When you can say whatever hurtful thing you want without real punishment. I know thats not the case always. Some more famous individuals have been removed from this social experiment we call social media but thats not always the case. I also don’t want people removed. Im not for censorship Im an artist how could a creative person really be for that anyway? Im not discussing that topic though. Im just trying to figure out why some of us have gotten to a point where we are so cruel to each other. Its so messed up that artist have to deal with so much hate and negative comments! Im not speaking for myself Im pretty good at letting things go. I also have outlets to release my stress. I hit the gym and the studio for relaxation. Some people are not as strong as others though especially mentally. We need to remember that it is a real person behind those profile pictures. We don’t always know whats going on in their daily lives. So please remember to be kind. Be kind & Respectful.
Fitness is an investment!
Working out has many benefits. Strength, conditioning, stress relief etc. It’s also an investment. Think about the money you could be saving in the future and the stress you may be saving your family from. I look at my workout as an investment for my future health and wealth. I really am fighting to keep away from expensive hospital bills. My family struggled so much when I was growing up because of loved ones health issues. I refuse to let it happen to me or my wife. I know its not impossible to be healthy then all of sudden an issue comes up but I will do my best to prevent it. So keep pushing those weights they may save your life one day!
Never too Late!!!
I’m feeling more motivated lately. The business part of my life is starting to really grow. All the hard work finally paying off. Plenty of times I thought of stopping and just making my passion more of a hobby. Im so glad I didn’t stop! It’s never too late for you to start your dreams or make new goals. Growth is a part of life. We grow we change which is good! This is a good thing it means you’re growing! So start that business, make new plans, buy a house or sell it whatever! Just make sure you live your life! Have a blessed day!
Anything worth doing is going to take time and effort. Everything these days is so convenient and fast. Getting in shape is still one of the hardest things to accomplish. I’m taking a little longer than expected to achieve my goal but I’m pushing. The holidays didn’t help lol but I’m focused and continuing to move forward. If anyone needs some advice or guidance just let me know!
Daily Blog post Goals & Time
Goals are important! I never was a fan of excuses. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had conversations with people discussing the latest show thats on Netflix or Hulu. They always tell me how good it is and how many episodes they’ve watched in a row. Then immediately after were discussing ideas and plans to get back in shape or lose weight. What comes next always makes me laugh inside. “Time I just don’t have it” The most frustrating phrase for someone like me to hear.
I’m not saying that I haven’t fallen in to the trap of television, overeating, smoking or whatever unhealthy habit you can think of. Im not judging anyone but if you’re going to change your life for the better. You will need time! Making time for your goals is a challenge between work, family, and daily chores that just have to be done. It wont be easy but every goal will require sacrifice. Thats just the way it is. Want bigger arms? Lift bigger weights. Want to be a small business owner? You will fail over and over but its worth it. It will also require time!
I always get frustrated when I’m pulled away from a project or my workout routine. One of the hardest things in life to do is learn to say no. You will have to learn that word more and more when you start off on any adventure wether it be getting into shape, starting a business, etc. I came to terms with this years ago. Set Goals make time and Grind! Have a blessed day.
Daily Blog post Retribution
Today I look back on my album Retribution. If you haven’t heard it before I will be posting the youtube link below. I would never recommend to anyone to dwell in their past, but sometimes it can be beneficial to look back and reflect. I use my past for motivation on some projects. The truth is our past is important.
How do I deal with the past events that changed my life forever? I train my body, mind and spirit. Fitness is one of the most important parts of my life. I love the challenge it presents with every rep and set. I feel the stress leaving my body. I enjoy reading and writing stories. Being creative is also very empowering. I feel meditation is something everyone should consider trying. I know it’s not for everyone. Some people prefer prayer which is also fine. Try to find as many things as you can to inspire you and keep you healthy. Family and friends are very important but you have to learn to be happy with yourself too.
Forgive but never forget and move on!
