Welcome to The Show!

Why did I start this blog? This is the question I’ve been asking myself through this entire process. Why am I so special that I think people would even care about what I am doing or better yet what I am writing about? At the end of the day I keep coming up with the same answer. I want to be able to vocalize who I really am, in all my faults and glory. All my life I have put myself in endless positions and opened up countless opportunities for people to judge me. Some I deserve and take full responsibility for, others I don’t feel like I deserved at all but that’s life right? Rolling with the punches? Letting those opinions and experiences that follow them shape you? Only if it was that easy, right? I’ve learned many of these lessons the hard way constantly wondering if I was just surviving in this constant circle of self-inflicted judgment and hate. Now I am finally at a point in my life where I am looking back and emotions of being thankful rush through me. Thankful that those situations, people and experiences happened. This is my opportunity to not only prove my worth but to also say THANK YOU. I wanted to have a platform to show people they aren’t alone and as much as I wish my life was perfect, it isn’t. My life is far from perfect. I’ve recently learned perfect is boring and that perfect also isn’t real. Perfect is not attainable, so why do we try so hard? Why do we wrap our world around pleasing people who have no intention of ever pleasing us in return? I’ve been fake, I think we all have at one point or another. The worst part about being fake was not being able to show my true self. That’s what brings me here, this is me, in raw form. I hope you enjoy being apart of my journey and learning through my stories, experiences and advice. The one thing I want most for people to take away from this is, I am only human, as we all are at the end of the day. I love and live hard, making great decisions and also many horrible ones all while trying to stay humble and positive along with striving to inspire, so I will end with one of my favorite quotes-

“You can’t be an important and life changing presence for some people without also being a joke and embarrassment to others. You Just can’t. Because there’s no such thing as a lack of adversity. It doesn’t exist. The old saying goes that no matter where you go, there you are. Well, the same is true for adversity and failure. No matter where you go, there’s a five-hundred-pound load of shit waiting for you. And that’s perfectly fine. The point isn’t to get away from the shit. The point is to find the shit you enjoy dealing with.”
– Mark Manson (The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*CK)
