Living In The Woods…My Dream

I do, I wish I could take my family and just go, just move into the woods.

I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Mountains, rivers, lakes and valley’s scattered everywhere. And, sometimes, when staring out into the green, you sometimes just want to start walking into it.

Here is my dream life…

I love baseball, and I think the Good Lord does too! See, here is a game that relies on both sides of the proverbial coin of “no I in team” and, “you can’t bat for me.”

I believe fear has a purpose, a great and glorious purpose in fact.

Currently I am writing through a 31 day challenge, and today’s subject was fear.

And, like many people, I almost when down the success coaching trek with the thought of fear.

Are you waiting to start a business? To ask that girl to marry you? Are you still waiting for that perfect moment before you do something?

Crazy. If I waited around for the perfect time, place or reason to do whatever it is, I would never have gotten anywhere.

Here is the mindset behind those who get stuff done and, those who watch them do it…

They are stunning to say the least. I love art, photography most of all. And, although I am not a photographer, I know great images when I see them, like these here.

Elena Shumilova, this mom will take you away and into a part of Russia I myself never truly knew existed.

I grew up before Reagan asked that the wall be torn down, and yet, after they were, I never thought about it again. Now I am.

So, I am sitting in the middle of the road here, and it is this, what is my calling for this website?

Not too long ago I was reading a post from Brian Gardner, Ten Words That Changed My Life. While it was short, it hit me like a ton of bricks.

Getting minimal. In the back of my mind I can see living in a cabin like this one, my wife, kids and all. Getting away from the craziness and living with real purpose.

Here I wanted to share with you some of my personal thoughts about getting a little minimal in life, and how we live it.

Growing Up With WEED | Yes, I Mean Marijuana

By Sunday, January 12, 2014 8 Permalink 0

You may not agree with me, but marijuana wrecks you, it wrecks families and, it can kill you. Here is my story growing up with WEED.

Until you understand that what you are doing is wrong, you will never know how stupid smoking pot is. And, until you make those who love you sad and brokenhearted, you won’t care.

But, in the end, these are the real effects of this drug. Growing up as you will see was neither fun or, “relaxed” man…it was horrible.
