Annual Review, 2017

Annual Review, 2017

It’s somewhat comical looking back on the last year of posts knowing that I made a total of three articles live throughout that time. While it may be laughable, it’s also an honest reflection of where I find myself within this space.

Early 2017 proved to be immensely difficult for…

Dear Rally

Dear Rally,

I hope you’re not upset with me that I started writing this letter in my head a little more than 3 weeks ago. When we found out your kidneys were failing, I knew we still had some time together. I wanted to start thinking about our life together,…

Annual Review, 2016

The Roman leader and Stoic philosopher Marcus Aurelius famously said, The measure of a man is the worth of the things he cares about.

As I look back on my third year of intentionally tracking life’s ups and downs, I stop to reflect on how well I’m doing as a man….

A Simple Machine, Like the Lever

There hasn’t been a book in a while that speaks to me on a deeper level in the way this one does. Each time I read through its straightforward but multi-layered pages, I get that soul shifting feeling.

A Simple Machine, Like the Lever, also understood to the reader as Nicholas’ semi-frequent…

Triggers

Thinking back to high school, I remember the first time my friends and I really dove into alcohol. We were juniors: old enough to get around on our own but definitely not out of the parental nest just yet. For that matter, we weren’t even the kings of our own…

Authoring Your Next Moment

I have come to believe a few key things about circumstance and relationship over the years, whether those beliefs surround partnerships, friendships, or even the day to day stuff.

One of the most beneficial books I continue to pull from the shelf on the topics surrounding general fulfillment as well as partnership…

Annual Review, 2014

An annual review is one of those things that takes weeks to think about and days to poke around at to get right. It’s recalibrating the engine; a time capsule of (sometimes very personal) information that allows us to reflect diligently. It is a document that becomes stamped in time…
