Are you standing in the way of your next level epic?

Oh Darling, if only you knew. If only you knew exactly how powerful you truly are. If only you knew exactly how worthy you truly are. If only you knew exactly how fan-fucking-tastic you truly are. I know it’s hard at times to see past all the bullshit, the limitations, the glass ceilings, the childhood […]

Mechanics VS Passion – there’s simply no contest

I have a deep appreciation for magnificence. Legendary. An appreciation for people who follow their passion, their purpose, their soul. I have such an appreciation for the guy coming in last, sweating, crying, vomiting, collapsing.  But he keeps on going until he’s over the finish line.

You can’t make me retire – ever!

There are some topics that has me stopping in my tracks and do a double take to make sure I’m in the right house. Topics that are just not even part of my thought process and so I never pay them any attention and sure don’t expect to hear them in my home! Retirement is […]

This is the third time I’m starting this blog. I know that today I’m being called to talk about parenthood but fuck it’s hard. It’s hard because there’s so much judgement out there of what makes a good parent. So much judgement around the sacrifices we should be making to make to earn our stripes as […]

Ducks and Swans

This blog is especially for Roxanne – the most gracious swan of all. I love doing shit that keeps me humble. Very humble. The type of things that keep my ego in check by choosing to look anything but phenomenal. In fact if you ever see me practicing my chosen physical activities you probably think WTF? I’ve […]
