MY 45-MINUTE BRAIN TUMOR!

I’m in my hometown right now, spending some time with my family and finishing my book.  I started it here, so it just felt right to return home to wrap it up, but as always, my mom likes to commit me to a laundry list of things every time I’m here.  The older I get, the less my visits home feel like a break from the chaos of living in Los Angeles and the more they feel like a traveling circus of one.  I have a tendency to be a people pleaser and…

The $81 Beet Salad!

Do you want to know the only thing worse than that moment on a dreaded group dinner when the server presents the check and someone makes the gut-wrenching suggestion to just divide the tab equally, even though you purposely ordered a small beet salad and ice water because…

Love Yourself...ALWAYS!

I’m 37 years old and in some ways I feel like I’m just now getting to know myself.  For much of my life, whether I was aware of it or not, I struggled with self-love.  It’s always felt so natural for me to show love and compassion to others, but showing the same to myself has never been easy.  I’m not a selfish person, I know that, but…

"SOMETIMES PEOPLE HIDE STUFF."

I’ve been doing this blog thing for a few weeks now and have been overwhelmed by the love and support from around the world!  You guys and gals really are the best and I’m so grateful that my words are resonating.  For me, writing is a form of therapy and just as helpful to my own heart as it seems to be to yours.  Lately though, my heart has been aching and today I’m going to share a bit more with you…

BROKE & BROKE DOWN...BUT NEVER BROKEN!

I’m a blessed guy and I’ve had the opportunity to do some pretty awesome stuff, but I want to be very clear about a few things.  My life is not easy, my career is not full of glitz or glamour and luck has nothing to do with what the outside world often perceives as success.  I’ve busted my butt for every single opportunity I’ve ever received and even though you might glance at my social media from time to time and think my life’s poppin’…

DIVINE SYNCHRONICITY!

Have you ever noticed that feeling you get inside that seems to pop up and tug at your soul whenever you feel out of alignment or out of pocket? It’s a negative shift that happens at our core when our soul senses that something is off, but it’s a negative course correction that is meant to shift us back into our purpose. It’s a negative shift, but one…

Finding the FUN in Fear!

As a child I was taught to fear everything. Strangers in windowless vans offering candy, Jehovah’s Witnesses going door to door trying to spread their message or anyone from our rival town just 10 minutes away were all sources of fear. I’d definitely advise against the whole strangers with candy thing, but like so many fears…

It’s Time to Level Up!

My theme for 2018 is “Leveling Up.” I’ve played small for most of my life, never accepting my gifts or allowing myself to dream of a better life. I was raised to be grateful for what I was given and accept that as what I was meant to have. I am grateful, but I accept…
