I’m so grateful and blessed to be a father. It truly is the greatest feeling in the world. I wish you all a blessed day. It’s not easy raising children in this world. Just keep pushing forward and doing whats best for your loved ones.
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!
Dress good Speak good and be polite. Im not a person who judges by appearances but others do and I will never care what others think. That does’t mean I just stop caring how I look. Lately I’ve been trying to help people with their appearance not to please everyone else but to make them feel good about themselves! Thats why Im so passionate about getting fit and eating healthy. The only difference is Im not crazy lol. I will eat what I want every once in a while and enjoy a beer. When I go out in public I also make sure Im groomed showered and have decent clothes on. I’m not talking about suit and tie either. Just decent looking apparel. Suit and tie is right for certain occasions. Why am I talking about this? Well Im an artist and I may not be famous but when I go into public I make sure I look good. It’s as simple as this if you want to be taken serious. Then you have to take yourself serious! I don’t believe you need high name brand clothes either. Just be clean and dress good. Have a blessed day and stay Motivated!!!

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.
