Welcome to my website, Brother.
First of all, I'm not in the habit of telling another man how to be a man and I'm not about to start. You and you alone decide on what kind of man you want to be.
But my question is... are you living as that man?
Are you living up to your potential? Are you living a peaceful, purpose driven and prosperous life? ARE YOU LIVING FULLY?
I ask because for me the answer was NO!
YES!! I've always liked to exercise, I like eating good food and I like to think I'm a very mindful person who wants to best for myself and others.
BUT... while all of that is true I also had other things going on in my life that I masked. I accepted that because I was doing well in certain areas that any short-comings were part of the parcel of life.
I tolerated the constant undertone of anxiety that plagued most days.
I justified being short, bad tempered and sometimes just an asshole because I was working hard and 'they' didn't understand.
I convinced myself that my disconnect from certain emotions was a huge strength.
I accepted that my relationship with my sons and my wife were 'fine' but never amazing!
In truth, I fell short being being me... fully!
