So This Is 29...


At 1 am last night I was laying in bed, reflecting on turning yet one year older. I have so much to be greatful for and yet looking back over the past 9 years that are my  20s, I cannot help but marvel at all of the changes that happen to us during this decade of our lives. I moved countless times, living in California, Texas, Washington and Tennessee. I sang in a band and learned how to play drums for another. I picked up my first digital camera, worked a number of jobs, went to school (something I never thought I'd do) and most recently married my beautiful wife Amanda. 

The one thought this night however keeping me up has been that the one thing I regret most is not being better to those around me. I have wanted to "be" a hundred different things this past 9 years, but when it comes down to it, today what I realize is that what I want to be remembered for when all is said and done is not what I did, or what I created. The legacy I want remembered is how I treated others in my life. I have met some of the most incredible and talented, caring people. I live in a place packed with them, and I can't help but feeling I haven't been the best to those in my life past or present. I won't go into it deeply, but I feel at times I am very selfish. In speak and action I often make my interactions about me, and I am certain I have pile driven a number of potentially amazing friendships due to it. So as I move into this last year of being "young" I am making it a goal to be more intentional, to love genuinely and to pursue those I care about with a heart of service and compassion. I want to be more present and I will pursue the community around me actively with a heart that is good. So here's to 29. I couldn't be more excited!

Stellar Stories

This app is great! I am usually somewhat skeptical of new social apps but the polished clean function of Stellar is on point and the potential and ease of use for visual story telling is beyond anything I have seen yet. I'm definitely getting behind it. Check it out for yourself and create something great to share!

To test the waters I decided to start including my #morningminiseries collections here!
