2016… the year we continued to kill it

Let’s see here… 2015 was a legit crazy year, a supreme mixture of good things and bad things. I have fought a lot of battles within myself, car died and I’ve spent a good part of it unreasonably sad and stressed. That being said, this year brought some major steps forward in my life as well. I met a ton of family on my mother’s side and it turns out, they are all pretty awesome.

I also began selling my work as well this year (even though currently it’s taken a temporary back seat) and I even sold a few copies of my first book! I have been killing it at work, managing to snag some gnarly raises and high fives.  The biggest thing is the inner battles I think I’ve finally figured out.  I’ve realized some things that I do that hinder my happiness and quality of life.

2016 marks another year of changes and more steps forward. I need to start taking better care of myself. I haven’t been to the doctors in over ten years and I think it’s time to pop in and see how things are. I also plan to pay back some debts to people that have been insanely helpful in past times that I haven’t been able to pay back yet.  I have so much work to do in this coming year and a checklist I will be working at vigorously to complete.

Look out homies, I’m going to slay 2016 and I hope to see all you wonderful people doing the same!

Merry Christmas (Happy Friday for those who don’t do Christmas)!

“Not everyone will understand your journey. That’s okay. You’re here to live your life, not to make everyone understand.” – Banksy

You know what’s easy?

Spending your life wishing for “enough.” Enough money, enough food, enough sleep, enough leisure time. You wish your life away wanting comfort and safety.

Life is neither comfortable nor safe.

Life is a struggle. Always moving one second at a time towards death.

We are born and then we die. What we do in between either echoes in eternity or is forgotten the moment we die.

What we do in the dash. What we build, what we love…what we lived for, what we were willing to die for.

Make no mistake. No one ever settled for less than what they were capable of and didn’t regret it in the end.

So, what are you capable of?

How can you know unless you push yourself? Unless…

Never settle

Pardon the grammar (mobile posting is not my favorite)

Ever notice how people get way too excited over the littlest things that should be an everyday occurrence.
Take dudes for instance, I see some girls cling to these dudes who do one thing right and do horrible things around that one thing. That model goes both ways and fits multiples subjects in life and I can’t wrap my head around why it is so.
Stop selling yourself short and realize you deserve better. Never settle for trash because sometimes it smells like roses…
