The birth of Levi, my first child, because that is the day I finally became the only thing I ever truly knew I wanted to be, a father. When I became a parent, everything else in my life, instinctually unconditionally, became at the most, secondly important. In a world full of greys, the black and white clarity of that was and is enlightening for me. It gave me strength, courage, and clarity. And I actually become better at the things in my life that were previously more important to me.(less)

“It'd Be a Lot Cooler If You Did.”
Matthew McConaughey

“We all step in shit from time to time. We hit roadblocks, we fuck up, we get fucked, we get sick, we don’t get what we want, we cross thousands of “could have done better”s and “wish that wouldn’t have happened”s in life. Stepping in shit is inevitable, so let’s either see it as good luck, or figure out how to do it less often.”
