Several years ago I stumbled upon a new series that I knew was profound. What I didn’t know was that this show would not only be profound to me, but to the whole nation. With each episode, the storyline unfolded a unique, but relatable family and we all sat there with our eyes glued to… Continue reading Run to Win
One thing I realized about myself is that I enjoy watching documentaries. Specifically documentaries on people or music. Or. Even better. People in music, LOL. Ya’ll know I love stories and documentaries are a great way to learn someone’s story. Some people in these films are those whom I never heard of before, like Mary… Continue reading Giants & Geniuses

This weekend I had the pleasure of being interviewed by a woman who I recently connected with (shout out to Sage Da Coach from Outside the Box!). She asked me what I had learned this year from God. I instantly knew, I learned that I need others. I have been so wired to be self-reliant and independent, and a lot of times I need to be, but I am learning that I don’t need to be all the time. There are times I simply will not be able to do things all on my own, and I will need help.

If anything I was making matters worse by slapping on my ace bandage before lifting my weights. In hindsight, I can see that my “just push through” mentality was surfacing, and so I did what came natural. But what comes “natural: isn’t always the healthiest decision. I’m learning..
