Safety

Our home has always been our safe place. You walk in from a long day’s work and the second you step in the house, you feel a sense of relief. Crawling into bed at night, our minds are at ease without the thought of being exposed to danger or risk. Recently, this changed and we […]

Homophobia – #16

This past weekend, I experienced my first homophobic interaction. A week ago, today, my dad turned the big 6-0. My mom has planned surprise parties for my dad at 40 and 50, but this year we dialed it back a bit and opted to get together on a Friday night at a bar close to […]

No one wants to look bad in front of other people. No one wants to fail. But when did it become a weakness to show vulnerability, to […]

Life Struggles

We’ve spent the last few posts talking about the good stuff – happiness, the little things, and personal development. While the good is good…the struggles and the hard stuff is where it really counts. #11 always says, “the good is easy”. It’s in the hard, mundane, messy and complicated situations where you really test yourself […]
