A pair of lips can tell you anything, sometimes lies and sometimes truths, it all depends on who’s talking.  

Let’s look at life from the perspective of a child, children don’t care about money and what you can buy them, if you’re not there and can’t show up when they need you. They want your time and the effort you put forth to be there for games, birthday parties, sporting events and anything else that may be important in their lives. The memories that are formed in their young minds are priceless and very relevant to who they become well into their adolescent years. 

All a man has is his word and his balls, without either, what do you stand for? 

Be there for your loved ones, be there for those who matter and when you need them the feeling should be mutual. In our simplest form we can be there because sometimes that’s all someone may need – human contact and the emotional support saying I’m here and I care. 

Trust that there will be times that there is nothing humanly or physically possible that you or anyone else can do, but by you Showing Up, it can make all the difference between someone stepping towards or away from their demise. 


Every night I close my eyes with a plan or notion of opening them again, I hold on to the promises of yesterday and push for the future of tomorrow. 

Not knowing whether I will live or die. 

No matter what you may be facing you must choose life, for it is better to have lived once than to have died a thousand times. 

Embrace the journey of each day; it’s hard, it’s sad and it can be cold and cruel, yet spontaneously beautiful if you embrace the moments that cannot be foreseen. 

Hold on to today because Tomorrow Is Not Promised
