Never Apologize

In the past couple of weeks I have said this very phrase to two different members on my team when they apologized for their struggles.


I am blessed to work with those who are authentic human beings who trust each other and are willing to share both the good and the bad.

You Are Beautiful

If you are reading this then I am talking to you, you are beautiful!

Never forget and never doubt.

I have two beautiful women in my life, my wife and my daughter, and when things get tough I think of them.

Not only are they beautiful, they bring beauty, joy and love into my life.

Where would I be without them?

Have You Become the Storm?

Though I walk through the valley of death (or shadows)…

I know that in my own life it is during times of struggle when I have grown the most. If we bend but do not break we become stronger. It may sound cliche but it can be true that what doesn’t kill us often makes us stronger.

My own journey has wound its way through life, death and ultimately back to life. You can read some of that on my About page and in my upcoming memoir.

I know that my path will again lead me to death’s door and the final reality. However my faith assures me that it is not the end just a different adventure.

Meanwhile in this life and hopefully in the next –

I am the storm!

How about you?

Pain – It is Not a Competition!

It is not

a competition,

there is enough

pain to go

around

Everyone’s pain, sorrow and hurt is unique; not quite the same. We all must walk through our own valley of the shadow and all we can do is walk with someone, supporting and encouraging along the way. Why is it then that we compare and compete with each other about whose pain is greatest?

Is there some special prize that I am not aware of? Is it our human nature to be on top, to feel superior to others whether in reality or just to have bragging rights? Who’s to say, other than we all carry pain and sorrow in this life and no one is left wanting in this.
