Much Love

People are loving and giving on birthdays and holidays.

We go out of our way to make others feel loved, cared for, and special.

The outpouring of love, kind words, and generous actions are overwhelming.

This is proof that we humans are capable of loving. We’ve proven it time and time again.

We are loving creatures. We have hearts. We have love inside.

We can love every day of the year. Feel the love. Express the love. Share the love. Spread the love. Show the love. Much love.

Happy birthday!

Happy birthday to my wonderful wife.

Thank you for being my wife, best friend, partner, companion, and confidante.

You are beautiful. You are kind. You are patient. You are loving. You are caring. You are giving. You are selfless.

I’m proud of you and blessed to have you in my life.

I appreciate you. I appreciate us. I love you. I love us.

Cheers to a year full of love, peace, health, and happiness. This is us. ❤️

Different Take on Gratitude

Be grateful not just for all of the good that has happened to us but also for the bad that hasn’t happened.

We tend to associate gratitude with what we have. Think about all we don’t have and all we’ve avoided.

Be grateful for all of the times we’ve stayed out of harm’s way. Be grateful we’ve been protected and kept safe.

I Am a Writer Because I Write

I may not write for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Hearst, TIME, Men’s Health, or Runner’s World, but I do write every day.

When I say I write every day, I mean every single day.

And that makes me a writer. I am a writer because I write.

I have potential. The world is abundant. Opportunities are infinite. The possibilities are endless. I’m open. I believe in myself. The future is bright.

Passion and Work

Passion and work ethic go hand in hand.

The more passionate we are, the more we genuinely want to do it. We want to show up. We want to put in the time and do the work. We enjoy the process. We enjoy the work.

Do what we’re passionate about. Do what we love and care about. Do what we’re interested in and can’t stop thinking about.

We’ll do a better job. We’ll outwork others. We’ll be consumed. It won’t feel like work. Time will fly.

It won’t be easy. It will be worth it.
